We had a delightful stay at this Edo-style ryokan in April of 2007.
I wasn't sure what to expect at a ryokan because my husband took care of the bookings. But after our stay, I was more than pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this unique experience.
BED, BATH, & BEYOND: Before arriving, I was most anxious about the bed (or lack thereof) and the bathroom. There was absolutely no cause for concern. There is no traditional box spring or mattress, but the bedding they supplied were surprisingly comfortable. The bathroom in our particular room was separated into two rooms: one with a toilet + minisink and another with a showerhead + sink. Neither were very spacious, but they were clean and the western style toilet even came with the fancy Japanese spray features. We actually never used the shower in our room because we opted for the public baths (onsen) instead. The onsens were intense and yet incredibly relaxing at the same time. We really enjoyed them!
FOOD: We enjoyed two breakfasts and one Edo-style kaiseki dinner at the Ryokan. The food was really delicious! The meals tasted great and had so much variety. We're normally spoiled by the fabulous food in Manhattan where we live, but the food in Tokyo is just on a higher level. We also highly recommend Seryna Honten for kobe beef steak and shabu shabu and Daiwa Sushi in Tsukiji market.
LOCATION: We were in Tokyo during the early part of April. The cherry blossoms ("sakura") were in full bloom and it was the perfect time for "hanami" (sakura viewing). The ryokan is a very short distance from Sumida Park along the water and not too far from Ueno Park.
We also stayed at the Park Hotel Tokyo (see my other reviews) in the Shiodome area and had a great experience there as well. I would recommend splitting your time between both hotels to experience the high tech comforts of a modern hotel as well as the old-fashioned charm of a ryokan.
