My experience here was wonderful! The rooms were beautiful and relatively large when compared to conventional hotel rooms. The staff are friendly, and the provided food was great. The atmosphere was just awesome and I will definitely stay here again in the future.

The good: - Great staff. Very helpful and polite. - There is a so-called "private shower room" which you can lock and shower inside with your spouse. The average: - Average room. No toilet and shower facilities in the room. Must go to common toilet and public bath area. This is quite common for old Ryokan, however we have stayed...

This place is exactly what you hope to find when traveling to Japan. Traditional style residence that immerses you in in the beautiful Japanese culture. I've stayed at more than a dozen hotels and hostels around Japan. This is by far my favorite. The staff is very courteous. The location is a short walk to many restaurants and places of...

We wanted to stay in a Ryokan whilst in Tokyo, and Homeikan seemed like a very good choice. It's not in the centre of the city which for us was ideal; its located nearby to two subway stations with a brief walk and hill to contend with. The staff were more than helpful - they took our bags up to...

The place wasn't easy to find. Best to ask the train counter staff for directions before leaving the train station. Even after we did, my friends and I still got lost, but the polite locals kindly showed us the way. Very clean and cozy place. Best out of the 3 accomodations we had while in Japan. The staff understood and...

The accommodations were clean and cozy. The shared bathrooms were always clean and sweet smelling. I did have to wait one night for the private onsen to be available at Daimachi. Of course, there is never any wait for the public bath. This is an old Ryokan that has some character. I especially loved the staff, who were always friendly...

We had a family group of 15 and we had a fantastic stay. Hotels like these are few nowadays in short a real experience for real people. Bit hard to find in a taxi in the small hours so please print a map before you arrive. Very good location and not far to go into town. If you want something...

Great place where to stay in Tokyo, great location where you can see a real life neighbourhood far from the kaos of the city centre. Staff is very attentive and extremely kind, sometimes I faced some rude foreigner customers leaving their shoes uncaringly at reception rather than in the allocated place and they promptly without complaining put everything back in...

Any visitor to Japan should go for the experience at least once. The main inn was full so I only managed to get a room in the annex. Staff there don't really speak English but were really helpful and friendly. The building is old and therefore has its limitations so don't expect five star facilities in toilets and wash troughs....

This was my first time staying in a ryokan (traditional Japanese guest house) and there will be next! The guest house has a lot of character with polished wood and stone elements everywhere and a beautiful, little garden with a fish pond sitting in the premise. The shared and private bathrooms are very clean. Yes, it is communal but separated...

Neighborhood Profile
Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda
Ochanomizu boasts its academic foundations starting with Yushima Seido, the birthplace of modern day Japanese education. The area has kept its college town feel with several university campuses. If you head towards Jinbocho, you'll find musical instrument and sports equipment shops, and an area of used bookstores for students and anyone interested in literature and the arts. 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.

“Go for the breakfast for at least one day, just for the experience.”

“Not sure how to describe it, but the hotel has a newer, ferro-concrete wing in the back. Same Japanese style, but rooms open right into the corridor. Without my asking, the staff moved me to the older part of the building, because the surrounding rooms were filled with guys from a martial arts team. Appreciated that.”
