Ryokan (luxurious Japanese-style inns) are typified by their okyakusama wa kamisama (“the customer is God”) attitude and, perhaps more importantly, the delicious meals delivered right to your Japanese-style, tatami-festooned room. For over 80 years, Ryokan Shigetsu Asakusa has been serving up old-school charm and fantastic views of nearby Senso-ji temple from its meditative, minimalist rooms, along with the stellar attention to customer service that’s to be expected of any ryokan.
