    Very nice & cosy, a must if you’re visiting Japan and want to experience a Japanese style inn (with airco) while having bus and metro-stops close-by (3min walk) to visit the big cities. I recommend using the private hot tub (free) and have a...

    This is a nice, relatively modern ryokan in the North of Asakusa. Warm welcome by English-speaking host who offered a variety of Japanese and Western breakfast. Shared washrooms and showers give a bit of youth hostel vibe, but there is a very cute...

    Unique and memorable experience for a first visit to Japan! Staff was very friendly and accommodating, and spoke English. I read reviews before booking, so I was aware that the rooms were very small and the facilities are all shared, and set my...

My hobbies are traveling, collecting antiques and cooking, so please enjoy the rare things in the museum throughout the four seasons. I was born in Tokyo and Dad used to be an eel restaurant and I helped him from a child so I make Tokyo Japanese Ishii familia foods every days. On February 4, 2020, we opened the antique teahouse "Fukuando". The interior also incorporates your favorite old materials, making it a more enjoyable space. The tableware also uses old vessels collected from all over Japan, so you can feel some nostalgia. We provide breakfast and dinner, and at the nearby Adachi market, we purchase seasonal fish and vegetables, so that customers can feel the four seasons of food. There are also local people, so I hope you will enjoy drinking and eating as a place to interact in the downtown area.
My hobby is traveling all over Japan and always stopping by antique shops to collect rare, cute and nostalgic items. While working as a lubricant for customers from all over the world and from all over Japan, I would like to create a good relationship with the awareness of "connecting" to everything. I also love cooking. I would like customers to enjoy Ishii familia Japanese home made foods.Although it is a small room, I hope that you can have a wonderful encounter with a delicious meal at the antique cafe and bar "Fukuandon".
The area around Andon Ryokan still retains the color of downtown, and the closest station is Minowabashi Station, one of the two Toden trains remaining in Tokyo, and Minowa Station on the Toei Hibiya Line (five minutes on foot). There is also a 15-minute walk from JR Joban Line and Tsukuba Express "Minamisenju" station. It takes 10 minutes by bus to Sensoji "Kaminarimon-mae" and 30 minutes if there is one, and the nearest tourist spots are "Jokanji Temple", "Higuchi Ichiyo Memorial Museum", "Yoshiwara Omon", "Tobifudo" and "Otori Shrine". There is. For those who have conquered all of the major spots in Tokyo, we recommend the downtown where the atmosphere of Edo still remains, the town where Higuchi Ichiyo spent, the town where Shotaro Ikenami was the subject, as a second destination.
