Lonely Planet review

The Sawanoya is a budget gem in quiet Yanaka, with very friendly staff and all the traditional hospitality you would expect of a ryokan – even origami paper cranes perched on your futon pillow. The shared cypress and earthenware bathrooms are the perfect balm after a long day of walking. The lobby overflows with information about travel options in Japan and bicycles are available for rent; biking the quiet temple lanes of the Yanaka area is highly recommended.

Our independent authors have visited Sawanoya Ryokan and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Tokyo.
