Lonely Planet review

Sawanoya is a gem in quiet Yanaka, with very friendly staff and all the traditional hospitality you would expect of a ryokan. The shared cypress and earthenware baths are the perfect balm after a long day (some rooms have their own bath, too). The lobby overflows with information about travel options in Japan and bicycles are available for rent.

Our independent authors have visited Sawanoya Ryokan and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Ueno & Around.
