I stayed at Sakura Inn in the Ikebukuro area of Tokyo. The Ikebukuro area isn't really noted for much; there's some big department stores and a small area of restaurants. The hotel I stayed at was clean, and decent. It was close to the subway which is always a big deal for me.

Japanese style toilet. The metal thing on top is a faucet that allows you to wash your hands when you are done.

that toilet thing is pretty neat. saves water. so the dirty water that came from washing your hands is used when you flush the toilet to clean the bowl. Too bad the US will never do something like this...handicap rules probably prohibit it...
