Visitors to Asakusa remark on its charm. Its long history as one of the designated geisha districts can be seen in place even today. If you are lucky, you may be able to catch a glimpse at a geisha on her way to her lessons. And at night, the neighborhood changes dramatically as neighborhood establishments vie for a potential client’s attention.
A leisurely stroll will acquaint you with the appeal of this area. In contrast to the bustling activity at the front of the temple, you will find a more relaxed pace. Newly opened cafes, and little shops are fun to explore in our corner away from the crowds.
This inn was built on the land which was once a traditional Japanese restaurant and banquet house. Though the building has changed, we continue to be the same; actively involved in the community. We hope to share that joy with you too. We are constantly collecting local information, and hope to be able to meet your needs and guide you according to your whims. Feel free to express to us your interests.
Being in the moment, you will surely find small alleys and byways in which you would like to be photographed. There is no need to rent a kimono in order to enjoy becoming part of the neighborhood. You can use one of our own design.
Being open to and enjoying new possibilities is the greatest joy of a good trip. Getting to know new people and sharing ideas, broadening one’s perspective are all something we know will enrich your visit. We, hope to be able to facilitate that important part of your stay as well.
Of course, nearby, there are the famous places which make all the guide books, and then there are places which are loved by and only known to the locals. We are happy to share our knowledge.
