Ryokan-Style Accommodation IKIDANE HOUSE Opens New Branch For Foreign Tourists

13.February.2018 | SPOT

In the run up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, new accommodation laws are coming into place in Japan, and the number of hotels and lodgings catered towards inbound foreigners is on the rise.

IKIDANE NIPPON is a guest house based around spreading enjoyment of the more chic and sophisticated side of Japan to the world. The company currently has branches in Tabata and Asakusa in Tokyo and Tanimachi and Namba in Osaka, but a brand new branch was opened in the popular sightseeing area of Hatago in Asakusa.



With the help of interior coordinators, the accommodation is styled like a Japanese ryokan, so you wouldn’t think it was a guest house. Each room is floored with tatami and features sliding doors and fusuma bed-quilts. Complete with low dining tables and small teapots, it offers an authentic Japanese experience.


When the people of Tokyo think about what reminds them of summer, one of the main things is the Sumida River Fireworks Festival! Every year, over 1 million people show up to watch the fireworks, so it can be difficult to find a good spot. But the new branch of IKIDANE HOUSE offers a rooftop view, so you can gaze at the lit-up night sky without worry.


Also, the filtration system in the accommodation means you can enjoy a hot spring style hot bath at any hour of the day. You can forget about the time and rest up from sightseeing.


The accommodation is just 10 minutes by foot from Sensō-ji – Tokyo’s oldest temple and one of the most popular spots in Asakusa – and 20 minutes from Tokyo Skytree, the tallest tower in the world. Places like Akihabara, Ueno and Yanaka are also easy accessible from IKIDANE HOUSE by train.
