When I came across this hotel while planning my trip to Tokyo I just had to stay here, even if it was just for a few days. It appealed to wanting to experience a more traditional side of Tokyo as well as the architect in me as this is a modern interpretation of a traditional ryokan. On arrival I was welcomed by a freshly made iced green tea with traditional Japanese sweets and an iced towel before taking care of the formalities. With your room you receive traditional slippers and, if you like, traditional robes to use in the hotel. The rooms are tiny and equipped with tatami mats and futons and you share the showers and bathrooms with other guests, but everything is perfectly sized and very clean. The use of modern materials and every available space is both inspiring and intriguing.
It is a bit further from the heart of Tokyo, but easily reached from the airport and on the edge of Asakusa, an older part of Tokyo. So if you are interested in that, this is a good place to stay. Even if you are not, it is very good.
