This time, we will be introducing a Tokyo lodging facility called “Oak Hostel Zen.” It is a 3-minute walk from JR Uguisudani Station, the nearest station, which can get you to Akihabara by train in just 10 minutes.

This facility offers not only dormitory-style rooms, but a wide variety of private rooms as well, so it works well for groups needing accommodations.
