Thank you Homeikan for taking care of me! It was the best rest I've had in a long time :)

The personal is particularly friendly and some of them speak a good english, not so common in Japan. You can find all you need inside the Ryokan: Washing machine and beers all night long. Rooms with climatisation, you choose the temperature as you like.

We loved our stay at Homeikan and can't recommend it highly enough. Here are a few things that we particularly enjoyed: - The amazing staff who were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them (they even drove our suitcases between buildings when we had to move rooms) - The traditional feel of the place - The complimentary yukata robes (which can also be bought as souvenirs/presents) - The comfortable futon beds - The traditional Japanese breakfast - The large luxurious baths

The staff was awesome. They helped us in every moment. The most beautiful, the bathroom: take a bath after a long walk day was the best part. The typical breakfrast was nice. The rooms are typical japanesse. Sllep in a futon is interesting.

Perfect stay in Tokyo, thanks to this uncredible ryokan which should definitely be more known (but not too much too keep this so japanese atmosphere). And quit!! No street nor car noise, lovely little garden, traditional furnishing, smooth staff, japanese bat Last time I was in Tokyo, my company sent me to this occidental uninteresting hotel by Tokyo City Hall with the tiniest room ever for €150 per night, with no breakfast!! I can't wait to come back to Tokyo to stay in this ryokan again...

thanks millions . some people like western style even if they are in japan. may be they look for macdonald in the moon. some people who have iinteligent adventure mind, they may try ryokan in japan. we are very,very happy to meet you. wonderful guests make this old ryokan more comfortable. this is what we learnt from our 70 years history.

Amazing stay - very traditional hostel, exactly what you want to experience when you visit Tokyo. The staff are very friendly, but not over-bearing. The beds are extremely comfortable (even though they are on the floor!). And the bathroom is incredibly relaxing! The location is good, only few minutes walk away from a few main MRT lines. Print out a map to get to the hostel, make sure you know the direction from Kasuga Sation - we found it easiest to tell taxi drivers to take us there then walk.

We enjoyed the size of our room as well as the complementary tea and biscuits. The staff was really kind and helpful and they recommended good restaurants. The facilities (toilet, shower, and bath) could have been a bit more modern and each toilet stall could have been a little bigger. A bit more privacy in a toilet stall would also have been greatly appreciated.

I could feel traditional Japanese ryokan. It was clean and calm. The only weakness is little far from subway station. Staffs was thoughtful to visitors.

An amazing traditional style hotel. The staff is extremly helpful and responsive. You also get your own private traditional style bath when you stay in the hotel part which was pretty awesome. In amazing location with quick walking distance to two subway lines and the Tokyo Dome to catch a Giants baseball game. Also right next to Tokyo University which is a beautiful campus to walk around. Highly recommend

Very traditional and relaxing hostel. The staff really helped us to find whatever we needed. It is a bit of distance from Tokyo centre, but a great experience!

A very traditional hotel, pure japanese style ! (common bathroom, traditional bed and so on). Worth to try for a short time, pretty cheap. No wi-fi but internet access with a computer at the reception. Staff is ok but they are not very good english speakers.

Really cool old style hostel. Our best stay the hole trip. The location may not be in the city centre, but is easy to find and accessible through the subway system. The hostel is old, has an old style you would expect from a Japanese hostel, and is really well maintained. The staff speaks English and were very helpful upon arrival.
