This is a traditional ryokan, built of wood and stone. Great care has gone into the placement of stones, the shape of wood, the welcome offered the guest. The garden is gorgeous. The rooms vary, but all have tatami mats. As you'd expect, you take your shoes off at the door.
The staff is helpful - some have more English than others, but all go out of their way to be of service. The only comparable experience I've had has been at a small ryokan in Kyoto ... and that was more than 20-years ago. How refreshing to find this ryokan in Tokyo.
Nearby are two different subway stops, several reasonably priced restaurants of good quality, and all kinds of shops. But the ryokan itself is in a largely residential neighborhood, quiet and very Japanese. This is not a western experience, and it's a really good thing.
