For the traditional Ryokan experience you cannot go past the Homeikan Daimachi Bekkan Ryokan (www.homeikan.com) Comfortable rooms, magnificent baths and a beautiful breakfast. I was fortunate to have a room with a balcony and a view outside. Such peace int he heart of the bustling city. A wonderful place to come home to after a busy day downtown. A 10... More

I had stayed in the Daimachi building last year, and had loved it. Unfortunately, that building looked closed this year and we stayed in the Honkan wing, which was not as good. No garden, no balcony, no view from our room on the second floor, which thus felt small even though it was an 8-tatami room. Lights remained on all... More

I stayed at Homeikan for two nights and it was a fantastic ryokan experience! The tatami mats were comfortable to sleep on, the rooms were nice and clean, the family bath was great, the house madam was super helpful with giving directions about Tokyo sites, it was quiet, the breakfast was great. It really felt like living in a somebody's... More

It is my 3rd time staying at Homeikan. This is one of the oldest Ryokan in Tokyo remain no harm. It is also extremely expensive to keep such building operating as a hotel nowadays. Every time I feel appreciated by staying here. The people are lovely, the house madam can nearly remember every guest who stayed previously. Their breakfast is... More

Stayed there in May 2014 on a 3-day stint in the city w/ my two college-aged brothers. Found everything about Homeikan to be superb--from the beautiful garden at the entrance and the Japanese-style tatami rooms, to the attentiveness of the staff and the accessibility to the metro and Tokyo Dome. Excellent value for the price, especially if you are traveling... More

The building itself is beautifully constructed in traditional Japanese style. Sliding paper doors and freshly woven tatami mats added to the charm of this already alluring hostel. The staff was incredibly nice - the rooms spacious and comfy. Definitely recommended.

This Ryokan was fantastic! Very authentic and cozy. The tatami floors and wood smelled amazing, while the futons were comfortable. I mistakenly booked for 3 persons last minute, while having a group of 5, and they switched around accommodations to get us another room. The staff were extremely attentive, and the surrounding neighborhood was quaint, peaceful, and had great shops.... More

An amazing traditional style hotel. The staff is extremly helpful and responsive. You also get your own private traditional style bath when you stay in the hotel part which was pretty awesome. In amazing location with quick walking distance to two subway lines and the Tokyo Dome to catch a Giants baseball game. Also right next to Tokyo University which... More

Nice and quiet neighbourhood. A bit out of the way, but clos to the metro. Attentitve staff. Cozy, with the little extra. Slippers and low tables give you the Japan-feeling to the bone! Very nice bath and free shampoo + soap!

Homeikan is pretty much the perfect place to stay in Tokyo. Although it's just four stops north of Tokyo station on the subway, it feels like you are far out, due to how charming, quaint and quiet the surrounding Bunkyo neighborhood is. Bunkyo itself is home to plenty of great shops and restaurants, which means that you can dine and... More
