The best place I have ever stayed - authentic, a wonderfull bathroom, very kind staff and lovely atmosphere.


Very pleasant stay. A bit far from the touristic places. No much restaurant around. But a very pleasant ryokan, with the japanese spirit. We enjoyed our stay.

Thank you very much for your stay at us. The phrase, Japanese spirt sounds very encouraging for us. Yes, we preserve our tradition in the cener of this modern city Tokyo.


Nicest place i've stayed in Japan. Traditional atmosphere, rooms are clean, the little garden is so cute, beautiful details all over the place. And helpful staff. I really enjoyed being there.


Superb staff and food, and an excellent traditional old Japanese feel. We stayed in the second house which was lovely.


Excelent staff, a little far of JR station but close to the metro station.


Really a good place to stay for visiting Tokyo. 5 mn from metro entrance, quite centric. Absolutely clean, very nice staff, all facilities around. Warm recommendation. I forgot one important thing: absolute quietness!

A thoroughly good way for non Japanese to begin to understand the local culture. We noted that schools send children so that the new generation can connect to their roots. Far friendlier than the falseness of hotels, far more genuine warmth of welcome. The bath is fantastic.

In my roughly 45 years of staying in hostels and small hotels around the world, the Homeikan Ryokan in Tokyo is probably the best. I've stayed there several times over the past dozen years, and it hasn't changed--- excellence around. The facility is beautiful, very artistic, the staff very friendly and helpful, and it's clean as a whistle. Great traditional Japanese experience.


Not a hostel. It's a traditional ryokan. Very great place to relax. Not a place to meet people, but a great place to experience the culture.
