Tama Ryokan provides basic accommodation for a reasonable price in a central Tokyo location. It is about 3 minutes walk from the Yamanote line, and literally seconds from the Tozai subway line. It is also convenient to the Internet - we have a WiFi throughout the building, and 24-hour access to one desktop computer.

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

We do have signs in the foyer about cash-only payment, but in fact offer other options. They do, however, need to be arranged. For example, we can email you an invoice that can be paid via Paypal. We do wish we could be more comfortable for guests with mobility issues, but the building is old (parts of it are from the 1950s) and some comfort issues really aren't solvable without putting up a whole new building. That's a project we'll never be able to afford at the rates we can charge for our humble accommodations.

Being in Japan, one got to try the older local guest-house style. Close to the Takannobaba station, on a side street, the place is typical converted house into a Ryokan. The lady owner/manager is very particular and will tell you all how to behave in a Japanese house with paper

That moment when you do not want to leave your room even if you are in Tokyo! :)
"This a Japanese style place with tatami only and share bathroom facilities… Don't go there is you travel with bulky pieces of luggage!"
"Ask for honeymoon sweet! It is adorable!"
"Choose a room with a tatami floor to complete the Japanese experience"
"Email the ryokan to communicate with the owners ahead of time."
