    We could not have been happier than at Sawanoya. The hotel is clean and quiet and the family that runs it very helpful and downright charming. We especially loved the hot baths at the end of a day exploring Tokyo. The neighborhood of the hotel...More

    This was the first place we stayed in Japan. It's a perfect, gentle introduction to Tokyo. It's a simple but enjoyable ryokan with traditional Japanese guest rooms--futons on tatami mats, and two cushions to sit on by a low tea table. The staff pays a...More

    Ueno, Asakusa
    Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
    Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
    Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
    a variety of different museums and galleries. At
    Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
    grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
    alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
    the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

    Hey Julie - the baths are used individually. They have two private, unisex baths (or they did a year ago!) - they have occupied signs as you’ve seen in the pic and privacy curtains as well. James
