Operating for more than three centuries, Tawaraya is one of the finest places to stay in Japan. From the decor to the service to the food, everything is simply the best available, and this is reflected in the price. It’s a very intimate, warm and personal place that has seen many loyal guests over the years, from Marlon Brando to Steve Jobs.
Rooms are kitted out in a mix of traditional Japanese-style and some mid-century decor, and the private wooden bathtubs have stunning garden views. It’s centrally located within an easy walk of two subway stations and plenty of good restaurants. Book at least a few months in advance, much more if you plan to visit during peak periods.
