I thoroughly enjoyed staying in a traditional Japanese inn as part of my travels in japan. This added to my overall holiday experience. This inn is only a 5min walk from JR line and metro, and two stops from Shinjuku. So easy to access. The rules have been described by previous reviewers, I felt this added to my experience and...

Stayed 2 nights here. The main reason we picked Tama Ryokan was because other hotels were fully booked due to the Golden Week but we were not disappointed. Though Mr Turner had some confusion on our arrival date, we were glad that he and his wife promptly prepared a room for us. There were some rules given by Mrs Turner... More

My friend and I had a very comfortable 3-night stay at Tama Ryokan. This place has a great location in Tokyo and can easily be accessed using JR trains or the subway. The owners, Mr. and Mrs. Turner were very pleasant and helpful. Knowing that we are first-timers in Tokyo, they would recommend good places to eat or visit. The... More

I stayed at this ryokan for 8 nights, and I recommend it. The place was a traditional japanese house, in a nice area (not too noisy and next to a JR station and a Tokyo Metro station). It was incredibly clean and the hosts where really kind.

Travelled to Japan with my sister who had never been before so I decided it would be a good experience for us to stay in a ryokan. We stayed at Tama ryokan for two nights and immensely enjoyed our time there. Mrs Turner was extremely helpful and made sure we knew everything about the ryokan when we arrived. The room... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my short three night stay in Tama Ryokan. The room was spacious by Tokyo standards (I had been staying in a Shinjuku hotel just prior to Tama, so I had a benchmark). The room was comfortable with a great air conditioner, and I didn't experience any noise. The location so close to the station was great. Takadanobaba... More

I quite enjoyed my stay here for a few nights but it was quite noisy at night due to being close to a few drinking establishments. The Takadanobaba neighbourhood is great and in general the ryokan is in a great location in Tokyo. The lady owner makes sure you know all the rules which is fine. I think there are... More

the moment I walked in, my first thought was "this is a wonderful place to shot a thriller movie". There's a gothic vibe everywhere... the red blood carpet, the old cat with eye allergy meowing everytime someone appeared, the cracking sound of the old wooden floor. But don't get me wrong... the place is nice, clean and the bed was... More

if you get along with japanese rules and habits, it´s all good ....the location is set perfectly close to Takadanobaba Station, and its easy to get around Tokyo. If you don´t mess up the tatamis or wear the wrong shoes ...
