Traditional Japanese rooms. Unique experience.

Staff were polite and helpful. Many things in the ryokan looked like the place had been closed for the last 30 years and reopened specifically for us. Several things in the room were broken, worn out and included the most ugly and least tasteful decoration i have ever seen in a traditional japanese room. The place wasn't terrible but quite disappointing considering the other reviews and other ryokan we stayed in for similar prices.

For travelers looking for a more authentic Japanese experience while staying in Tokyo try Homeikan. Located near Tokyo University and close to a subway stop for quick access anywhere in the city, Try the breakfast, you have to order it before 8pm the night before.

In a nice quiet, residential area of Tokyo that suits the vibe. Five to ten minute walk from subway stations. Good for an affordable ryokan experience if you want to sleep in a tatami room, wear yukata, dip in bath, etc., but definitely wallet friendly & not luxury. At check in neglected to inform us what time breakfast had to be ordered by that day, so we missed out on that experience. Baths were nice, very authentic; room had all authentic elements. Authentic for price, no frills.

Everything about our stay at Homeikan Hostel in Tokyo was awesome. The staff was incredibly hospitable and kind. We opted for a more traditional Japanese stay in it's exactly what we received and then some. The facility was clean and well managed. The courtyard was awesome. We were surprised at the level of security and comfort we felt in this community area. This was our first time staying in a hostel abroad and we are excited to try it again soon.

It was awesome! We were a couple on our anniversary trip and they welcome us with one of the best rooms and several gifts. Staff was very helpful and the atmosphere superb!

Congratulation . The T-shirt that our CEO presented to your future wife says "good wife and remarkable mother" in Japanese. 良妻賢母。 You can get it at only Homeikan!

Very nice ryokan with great atmosphere. You should definitely try the onsen after a long day around the city.

We loved having a real Japanese experience, especially the futon beds and the japanese bath. The garden and rock pools were also very beautiful and relaxing. This neighbourhood is very quiet and restful and we found some good places to eat also.

I really enjoyed my first stay in a ryokan. i stayed in the most basic of the rooms, but it was still lovely and traditional-looking, had air con and tea-making facilities. There is a private onsen (Japanese bath) which you can use at no extra cost, and even a bath robe to get into. It was a little tricky to find without a decent map or GPS...it's not far at all from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, but is in a surprisingly peaceful and relaxing area. Great place.

I stayed in a single private room and i would reccomend this ryokan to everyone reading. Homeikan is beautiful, clean, and airy. They offer traditional japanese breakfast to your room and can make it vegetarian. You can also use the private bath. Not very central but easy to find from todaimae station (namboku line), be sure to visit koishikawa korakuen it's just a couple of metro stops away (open 9-5 near iidabashi station) it makes a great combination for a truly japanese experience.

Homeikan is a wonderful place to stay and experience tipical japanese way of life. Everything is so beautiful. It's not the first time I've been there and I would go back again. Love it.

This isn't so much a hostel as it is a traditional guesthouse, but the atmosphere is fantastic. The rooms are very comfortable and have everything. There is an onsen, but you have to be fast to get to it. There are bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood, so finding things to do and eat isn't a problem. Unfortunately, I didn't order a breakfast so I missed out. The staff are very nice but are a bit older so may not appeal to most backpackers. Recommend to families and people looking to relax.
