“Charming family run guesthouse in a historic part of the city. Twelve authentically Japanese rooms feature paper lanterns, roll up futons and sliding paper screens. The baths are traditional too and come complete with helpful instructions. The owners are ever-willing to assist. The real experience.”

Ryokan Sawanoya

One of Tokyo’s most charming family-run traditional ryokan inns – clean, friendly, comfortable and quintessentially Japanese (but foreigner-friendly) – with tatami mat rooms, paper lanterns, Japanese baths and warm owners, located in the atmospheric Yanaka district.
