Notice: I am going to do fieldwork in Tokyo from mid May 2004 for about 9 months and I am looking for a reasonably priced accommodation in Tokyo for that period of time. I need something not very far from the center (within 23-ku). Any information about possibly available flat, room, dormitory will be very much appreciated.
