We were on a study trip to Tokyo+Kyoto, and stayed in Tama Ryokan for the Tokyo part of the trip. For Japanese Minshuku/Ryokan style of accommodation this one is hard to beat for the price ;) Tatami rooms.

I stayed here for 9nights and had a lovely time. My room was quiet, the toilet and shower always clean and it was so private at times I felt I was the only one there. I would highly recommend this ryokan if you're travelling solo...More
I stayed again at Tama Ryokan, starting Sep 1st, for 17 days. The owners gave me a pretty good discount, partly because I was a repeat customer, but mainly because I booked for so many nights.

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for
cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
