The staff were very kind and helpful. It was a great place to stay to get a real feel for a traditional Japanese home.

All around perfect. Stay here.


Directions were great! Owner (i think) was very nice and helpful.


Staff couldn't speak English and it was difficult to communicate. Location is not excellent and the curfew doesn't help the traveller


I very much enjoyed my stay here!!! Yes it's definately more chilled than your regular hostel, and yes there definately was translation issues with our hosts but even so they still made us feel extremely welcome and valued us a guest!! After a long hot day in the sun we were presented with ice cool drinks and a little snack to relax with. Very kind people!! The location is a little far from central Tokyo but still easily accessed on the subway, and I actually really liked the area!!


The staff don't speak english, but are really nice and will use 'google translator' to get the message across. I wanted the traditional ryokan experience, but didn't have time to leave tokyo. I would recommend this place for this purpose. If you are wanting to see the sites of tokyo, however, I would recommend staying somewhere closer to town.


Handy location, only about 5-10 minutes by foot from Kita-Senju station. The staff was friendly and helped with directions. The house has traditional rooms with sliding doors and tatami mats, and it is possible to have a Japanese bath in the evening (very nice!). Keep in mind that the gate will be closed from 10pm to 7am, so this is a place for visitors who sleep at night and wake up before 10am (when the cleaning time begins). Akihabara and Tokyo Sky Tree are very near, too.

There is a curfew on what time have to go back, if not they will lock up the main door. Luckily i manage to converse with the owner that i need to go back late and where can i enter and he guided me to a side door. If the owner can speak more english than it would be ever better, other then that, the experience is quite pleasant.

A beautiful traditional-style house with a rose garden, tucked away in the Adachi ward of Tokyo near Kita-Senju station. Our stay was affordable and restful (with futon-style beds) for a weekend in Tokyo, with many interesting sights in the surrounding blocks. I wish we had more time there. I was startled when one of the proprietors lit a cigarette in the middle of the common area, but they kept the bath hot for me in the evening and were good hosts. I would certainly stay there again.

We had an excellent time here, the place has a great traditional charm and we both discovered just how comfortable tatami mats really are. The hot tub was a great bonus and very relaxing after long days of discovering the city. The location was great as it had some brilliant restaurants and shops nearby, but was also a short walking distance to Kita Senju station. There was also a 7 Elleven nearby, whcih was handy for when we needed to take out cash on non-Japanese cards.

This ryokan is a wonderful find. It is a great value for its location and facilities. It is located close to a major station that is a good starting point to see Tokyo. The facilities are cozy, comfortable, and clean. It felt more like staying at a Japanese grandparents' house than a hotel. The building is old but the facilities are modern. If you want to experience some of the true charm of Japan, stay here.
