I found this place after doing some research on internet and because I don't want to spend a lot money on hotels, so this is the place! It's located in central shinjuku; stores, starbucks, restaurants are within a short walking distance. The ryokan is so close to takadanobaba station (just 1 mile). From this station you can get out at... More

My husband and I loved our stay at this ryokan. It was very clean and our room was quite comfortable and cozy. I was worried that the futon mattresses would be too thin to be comfortable, but that was not the case- they made for a good night's sleep. Our room was the most basic one, but it was more... More

My daughter and I stayed 4 nights at Tama Ryokan while visiting Tokyo during cherry blossom. The location is amazing, close to the Jr lines, subways, places to eat and many more. The ryokan is very clean and the owners are friendly and full of information about places to go in Tokyo. When I return to Japan in the near... More

We stayed in Tama Ryokan during the month of March 2015 and were placed in a traditional tatami room. The owners were very helpful in picking us up from the airport to ensure that we get to the ryokan in time as our flight arrived late in the evening. Our room itself was comfortable and appropriate size for 2 with... More

I booked in here with friends as our first stop in Japan as I'm not a huge fan of business hotels and I've got to say that it was perfect. The owners were super helpful - doubly so given that our flight was delayed due to a typhoon - and very accommodating. I actually feel bad it's taken me so... More

The location is absolutely amazing, so close to subway and JR lines. Also very cheap and the rooms are clean, tidy and very cute old fashioned Japanese style. Bathroom and shower separate as per most Japanese style rooms so consider this if this would be an issue for you, but we didn't have any issues. Would recommend.

This place is just 2 stops from Ikebukuro and Shinjuku. Cheap and very homely. The host was nice, and made sure that what the treatment I received was hotel-standard. Rubbish was cleared everyday. Room was good! Big and comfy! No complains. One bad thing was that I bought too much and had to carry a lot up the stairs and... More

If you want an affordable authentic Japanese experience in a nice part of Tokyo only 5 minutes walk from the JR Yamonote line then this is the place for you. I recently visited Tama Ryokan with my wife and daughter and stayed for 6 fantastic nights. At the end of every long day we would all look forward to coming... More

I came to Tamaryokan with 2 friends. At first we booked for only 2 night ( Sep 11- Sep 13) and then we will go to Saitama. Unfortunately , we missed the bus and had to look for a hotel to stay in the middle of tokyo during the weekend. I searched all ~300 hotels in Tokyo and couldn't find... More

We stayed in Tama Ryokan with a group of three. Tama Ryokan is located in near the Takadanobaba station(5min. walk) and the Yamanote and Tozan lines offer excellent transportation options for scouting Tokyo area. Mr. Turner came to meet us late in the night in the Haneda airport and helped us get through the transportation network to Takadanobaba. The neighbourhood... More

Staying in Shinjuku

Neighborhood Profile
Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
