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...

We stayed here for two nights, and I can only say that I wish we would have spent our entire time in Tokyo here. Its a beautiful old building (we were told its one of the few in the area that survived WWII as well as the great earthquake) located on a quiet sidestreet in a lovely neigborhood. The staff...

This is a truly traditional ryokan, so don't expect noisy common rooms and big socializing opportunities. If you're looking for a nice room, very peaceful atmosphere, japanese gardens outside your window, traditional breakfast in your room and the traditional hot tub bath, come here. I stayed 2 nights and got upgraded for free for the third night - just because...

We stayed a week at the ryokan and its annex. The annex was full of mosquitoes. The managers offered us a Japanese breakfast one day. In both locations the rooms were clean, the common bathroom clean. It was a nice place to stay as we were working at the nearby Tokyo University.

We loved this ryokan, which was our first night in Tokyo on a three-week trip. Definately going to stay there on our return trip through the big city. Homeikan is a little out of the way, but we liked the area and found fantastic restaurants on our ten minute walk to the subway to visit busier parts of Tokyo. The...

I visited Tokyo on business and decided that I'd spend a couple of days beforehand adjusting to the jet-lag and being a tourist. My wife had said I should consider a traditional Ryokan for a sample of traditional Japanese hospitality. I chose Homeikan on the basis of the reviews here and was not at all disappointed. The staff were always...

It was my first trip to Japan. I just want some special Japanese stay in the trip, so I chose Homeikan, coz of its not-so-expensive rate and its location. Can easily reach there by Tokyo Metro, walk along the road that pass Tokyo Uni.'s famous Aka-Mon, and then walk few min. by little street through neighborhood area, nice stroll! The...

When organising our 12-day trip to Japan, the group leader's guiding principles were "cheap and cheerful" and "reasonably authentic Japanese experience". We stayed in the Homeikan for 7 nights at the end of January 2011. I hadn't been to Japan before and didn't know what to expect at all. The staff at the Homeikan were very pleasant, formal and gracious...

“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.”
