2. Tokyo Hikari guesthouse

2. Tokyo Hikari guesthouse

This hostel was once the home of a carpenter, and the ceilings of the first floor where he once had his workshop soar up 4 meters in height. The family who owns the hostel have put almost a whole year into refurbishing this old wooden house. In keeping the same atmosphere as the old workshop, the public room retains its earthen floor, and rare for building in central Tokyo, it faces into a garden with a view of the tip of Skytree on sunny days.

For your comfort and enjoyment, the floors and the furniture in the guest rooms are made of pure, natural wood. Everyone is welcome to come and stay in this cozy little place – a hostel that’s a little nostalgic, and a little new, too.

More than any other Khaosan location, this hostel feels connected to the local area, participating in local events, hosting neighborhood strolls, and more.
