Hiroshi is extremely friendly and informative, providing useful information on places to visit and looking up travel times for getting around and getting to the airport on departure. Very reasonably...

Family Inn Saiko provided the perfect start to our trip - everyone we met were friendly and eager to help us find our way around. The Inn is a 10 minute walk away from the closest subway, and a 25 minute walk from the closest JR station. We elected to walk to the JR station, as it is a very...

The staff was so friendly, especially Nicholas who initially greeted me and checked me out. Every day I saw him he was giving me advice on the locations I was planning to visit and the inn is well stocked with brochures and maps. The location is great too, being one local station away from Ikebukuro. There's extremely easy access to...

This was our first trip to Japan, so sleeping on the futon bed on the floor and no chairs in the room was new experience for us (this was of course on purpose, that we wanted to experience the japan tradition). However we are very satisfied with the room in Family Inn Saiko, it was very clean, big enough, the...

“They will likely assign the rooms. But this is a good place to stay after trying other Ryokans out. Very clean (like most Ryokans) but the in-room bathroom adds to comfort and convenience. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, but is still close to major subway stations and has a lot of delicious food.”
