My husband and i stayed at Homeikan Morikawa as part of our month of travel through Asia, and it hit the right notes for us. I am trying to figure out how to review this particular stay, because while there were downsides to Homeikan Morikawa, there were, in my opinion, more upsides, depending on the type of stay you are considering. The upsides were that our room was lovely and traditional, the beds comfortable (despite the bean bag pillpws), wifi accessible, the price extremely reasonable (especially for Tokyo), and the location was in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to the metro lines which we try to use as often as possible while traveling. The ryokan had an odd charm that we enjoyed. The downsides were that the bathroom facilities were just average (although we did enjoy the family showers and bath), but we're not overly picky in that respect. Another downside would be the location for some (out of Tokyo center), but as we used the subways for easy transport around the city, we were able to go out for the nightlife to Shenjuku and navigate easily home. The ryokan is also very close to Ueno Park which houses a lovely lake, walks, many temples and the Tokyo Zoo. We visited during the cherry blossom festival, and the park was beautiful and lively and full of food vendors and absolutely worth a day visit. given the price and the loveliness of our room, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend Homeikan to certain, less "fussy" travelers who lean towards experiences over luxury.
