We had the pleasure of spending 5 nights at Sawanoya at the end of our trip to Japan and it was a highlight. Our room was spotless and enough room for my family of 4. The futons were laid out and an origami bird was placed on the pillow when we arrived, and cleaned daily. Slippers, Yakuta robes, kettle and cups on the coffee table with chairs sat just to the side of the tatami area. Ample room for cases and clothes.
We had our own bathroom but very much enjoyed the 2 traditional but private baths downstairs. You did not share with others which was great if you are modest.
Breakfast was delicious and always served with a smile.
It was great not to be in the jungle of the city, but the quaint old area of Taito yet only a 5 min walk to the great subway system.
We loved our stay and have recommended it to others.
