There's a wide range of accommodations in Tokyo, catering to all manner of tastes, styles and budgets, from cool and unique places to stay to the iconic and ubiquitous capsule hotels. However, what's increasingly harder to find is a good ryokan, the old-school Japanese guesthouse with tatami mats, futon beds and low tables.
Staying at a ryokan is an interesting experience in itself, as it provides a great introduction to traditional Japanese culture and hospitality. More often than not, these traditional inns also provide Japanese meals and sometimes even a private bathhouse just for guests. Here are some of our favourite ryokan in Tokyo.
