We stayed only one night at the homeikan as the price is a bit higher than most hostel but we think the place worth the money. The feeling you have when you are welcome in this place is great, they take good care of customer and they remember you well. The room we had was big and really nice. You... More

Stayed for one night Morikawabekkan Homeikan Tokyo at - truly disappointing and poor value. Was recommended in the Times but clearly not this branch! Hard to find and a damn long walk from the station if you are carrying a lot of bags. This is like a back-packers hostel not an hotel. Staff were friendly and polite but the place... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of our trip in Japan. We arrived late in the evening at the Honkan Ryokan on the off chance they had a space. They didn't but called Morikawa and had a room made up for us and took us by car there. When we arrived the entrance was lovely, really tranquil... More

We stayed the first 3 nights of Honkan and was moved last night due to Morikawa refurbishment of Honkan. Daimachi appeared not to have family who escaped us 5 family, which was a shame because we would have liked to have had direct access to Daimachis nice garden. Homeikan have very good prices to be living in Tokyo and could... More

Homeikan Ryokan was perfect, ask to stay at the Daimachi one, it has a beautiful pond. We were a little worried at first because this was a rushed trip, we decided to go 3 weeks before and we needed a hotel right away, when we got there it looks like a 3 star hotel which the typical japanese style living...

On our trip to Japan, we had stayed in a budget hotel, a authentic samurai house and also in a grand hotel. But the thing we were looking for most was a stay at a Ryokan. We saw Homeikan as a typical Japanese ryokan and booked it for one night,before we left tokyo. We stayed at Morikawa annex, which is... More

Travelling with a 2 and 4 yr old is always 'exciting' and so we were pensive as we approached tokyo from the airport with little sleep.... we ended taking a taxi from the subway station and i have to say that our...

I've used Trip Advisor as a "first port of call" for several vacations, but this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review, because I feel others should be warned of the experience we had. Please note that there seems to be about 3 Japanese-Styled accommodation places in the same Hongo, Bunkyo-Ku district, with "Homeikan" as part... More
