    Position is great and close to two metro lines. It's a cozy and intimate traditional ryokan, with tatami rooms and the two traditional bathrooms. It doesn't get more traditional than this. The hosts are nice and always available for any kind of questions. There is...More

    I've been coming to Japan for 10 years, and Tama Ryokan has been my favorite place to stay. Eiko-san and Michael-san have been welcoming, friendly and communicative hosts, and coming to Tama Ryokan feels like coming home. The rooms are beautiful, and capture the simplicity...More

    Not to contradict such a glowing review, but as I understand the family history, Tama Ryokan was a ryokan from the day construction finished. (I'm not sure when that was, but I've been told that Eiko's father went into this business not long after the...More
