Traditional Japanese ryokan w/ modern conveniences
We really wanted to try a ryokan experience on our recent 11 day trip to Japan and I'm glad we did; however, a futon experience isn't for everyone. The room for 3 was very spacious. It would have easily fit another 3 people. We slept on a futon on the floor with a very cozy comforter. The room has a desk, plenty of closet space and a small table with a full tea set (every day we were provided with a full pot of hot water and cookies). They provide robes and socks for everyone (there are no shoes permitted anywhere except the immediate entry way of the lobby). They had traditional Japanese style, but with modern conveniences, like lots of plugs for charging devices, a tv, hairdryer, etc. We actually had a little suite with a foyer, bathroom, then sleeping area. The traditional breakfast was a real treat! I really enjoyed using the ladies' bath area (my husband/son never checked out the men's area) after a long day of walking and found it very relaxing. There is a subway stop about 5 minutes away, but it's not on the JR line, so we couldn't use our JR passes. There are also bus stops within 5 minutes. The ryokan is located a bit off the main street in a small alley, so it was a little challenging to find, but Google Maps on our phone was a real life saver. We found it reasonably convenient to the major attractions we wanted to see because we had plenty of access to public transportation. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and would recommend it to others.

Characteristic Japanese accommodation
Very clean and well kept, which made my wife very happy!The only drawback is the location: there are very few restaurants in the neighborhood and the ryokan lies quite far from the main tourist attractions. Being a family of three, however, taxis were not much more expensive than public transportation. Th quality of the WiFi signal in our room was poor. All in all we enjoyed our stay at Sawaya Honten
