    Homeikan Honkan is the original ryokan (designated historical building) of three Homeikans in a residential neighbourhood. There are two other Honmeikans in the same neighbourhood (Beikan annex immediately across the alley and Morikawa annex a few minutes walk). It's excellent and convenient location is about 10min walk from Hongo Sanchome station on Marinouchi line, three stops away from Tokyo station,... More

    I only stayed here for two nights in the middle of a busy trip around Japan, but this was a lovely little oasis of calm in what can be a hectic city! While the ryokan is a little worn around the edges - no modern hotel this - you can't help but feel very much at home and welcome. The... More

    The ryokan was very central but in a quiet street. It was a real oasis in a hectic trip. The staff couldn't have been more helpful at every stage, with advice from how best to travel around Tokyo to how to order a takeaway. The room was spotlessly clean, well equipped and traditionally furnished. The traditional Japanese breakfast was a... More

    It's really an experience to sleep in a ryokan. This one was really nice. Good service, everything perfectly clean and very quiet. Price is affordable, not as others. Location is 10 minutes walking from 2 metro stations. I had breakfast one morning and was good (¥1000) including rice, tea, egg with pork, miso soup, chicken and some orange. It has... More

    I've stayed in both the "main" Homeikan and the Morikawa annex. They are similar, but I found the staff at the "main" a lot friendlier and helpful. The rooms are old-fashioned. I've stayed here a number of times through the years, and things, like TVs, have been updated. I particularly like the rooms that have a little foyer, entry room,... More

    We stayed at the Homeikan for a week while my wife attended a conference at nearby Tokyo University. The facility was very reasonably priced, quiet, and we were not penalized when one in our party had to cancel. We particularly enjoyed using the family bath area which could be locked to ensure privacy. There were two subway stations within easy... 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

Akihabara is well-known for its computer and electronic goods stores, and is now hugely popular as the must-visit mecca for people interested in anime and games.
