This is a traditional ryokan, built of wood and stone. Great care has gone into the placement of stones, the shape of wood, the welcome offered the guest. The garden is gorgeous. The rooms vary, but all have tatami mats. As you'd expect, you take your shoes off at the door. The staff is helpful - some have more English...

I stayed here as a female alone and I felt happy and safe the whole time. It was a bit of a difficult place to find, after walking up a massive hill with my 20kg suitcase I finally found it (by chance!). Turn right at the dry cleaners then walk up the hill opposite the mochi shop and its straight...

The rooms are rice mats, cot on the floor, traditional house robe is provided for you to walk to and from the bath/toilet. Bathing should be done...

My family of 5, 3 boys 14, 8 and 5 loved the huge room. Wonderful old world feel in the heart of Tokyo. From nearby Kasunga Station we could get everywhere. Ueno, Asakusa, Harajuku, Tsukiji were all within easy reach. The boys got a little tired one night and we got takeouts within 5 minutes walk from the ryokan. The...

Staying here was a highlight of our trip to Japan. Homeikan was a wonderful base for Tokyo. The rooms were very clean, the bath was comfortable, and the hosts were kind and attentive. It's in a nice area of Tokyo, with easy access to friendly local restaurants and the subway. Our guide in Tokyo was very impressed, noting that were...

Decent decor for one who respects and enjoys Japanese traditional style accommodations. I love the pebble corridors with beautiful lacquered wooden steps. Tooth-brushing and face-washing tubs also reminds me of what I've only seen in comic books! The neighbourhood has many beautiful cafes and eateries catered to the Tokyo University just beside it. Facilities are fine. 24-hour public bath and...

Overall I enjoyed my stay here. It it was hard to find the location, and when we finally found it we were told to we were staying in a different building several blocks away, so we had to walk even further. The bath facilities weren't as clean as I would prefer but nothing serious. The room, however, was very comfy...

A charming ryokan with lovely, kind staff who go out of the way to make you feel welcome. If you are after a glamorous and detached hotel experience, Homeikan is not for you - the rooms here are quirky and have a cosy, personal atmosphere. Each one is unique and makes you feel at home. The Japanese garden also adds...

Neighbourhood Profile
Ochanomizu / Akihabara / Kanda
Ochanomizu boasts its academic foundations starting with Yushima Seido, the birthplace of modern day Japanese education. The area has kept its college town feel with several university campuses. If you head towards Jinbocho, you'll find musical instrument and sports equipment shops, and an area of used bookstores for students and anyone interested in literature and the arts. Akihabara is well-known for its computer and electronic goods stores, and is now hugely popular as the must-visit mecca for people interested in anime and games.

“Not sure how to describe it, but the hotel has a newer, ferro-concrete wing in the back. Same Japanese style, but rooms open right into the corridor. Without my asking, the staff moved me to the older part of the building, because the surrounding rooms were filled with guys from a martial arts team. Appreciated that.”
