Lonely Planet review
Easily one of the best budget ryokan in Tokyo, this convivial inn has tatami rooms of various sizes and a Japanese-style lounge area that's conducive to meeting other travellers. Clean showers and toilets are shared, and there’s a lovely Japanese cypress bath. Book well in advance.
Our independent authors have visited Kimi Ryokan and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Shinjuku & West Tokyo.
