Hotel exterior

Long-standing hospitality with over one hundred years of history

Long-standing hospitality

Established in 1891 as the Kazusaya Ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn, the Hotel Kazusaya was transformed into a business hotel in 1980. It offers guests a heartfelt welcome rooted in a long tradition of hospitality.

The historic neighborhood of Nihombashi

Time Bell Street

The hotel is located in a historic district

Hotel Kazusaya faces “Toki no Kane” or “Time Bell” street, which takes its name from the way people told time in Japan’s Edo era (1602-1868). Twelve times a day Edo Castle would sound the time on taiko drums, but because it was not possible to hear the drums everywhere in the city the shogunate government also installed time-keeping bells across the capital. The bell in the Nihombashi neighborhood where Hotel Kazusaya is located was called the Kokucho Time Bell, and it was the first of its kind in the city of Edo. Also nearby is the site of the Edo-era Nagasaki Inn, where Dutch residents of Dejima Island in Nagasaki stayed when they came to the capital to pay tribute to the shogun. In Edo times, when Japan was closed to the outside world, Dejima was the only place in the country where foreigners were permitted to live and to trade with Japanese people. They lived under tight controls and were obligated to visit the shogun regularly. Also in Nihombashi are the former homes of famous figures in Japanese history like the poet and painter Yosa Buson and Ooishi Kuranosuke, leader of the 47 ronin samurai immortalized in the Chushingura epic. Nihombashi is an exceptionally historic neighborhood with more than enough famous sites to fascinate anyone with an interest in Japanese history.

Excellent public transportation access via four stations on seven lines

The hotel is close to four stations: Kanda, Shin-Nihombashi, Mitsukoshi-mae, and Kodenma-cho. These stations are served by seven train lines, including Japan Rail and the Tokyo Metro subway. It’s also five minutes by taxi from Japan Rail Tokyo Station, convenient for guests with heavy luggage. Haneda and Narita airports are also easy to get to from the hotel, and Hakozaki Interchange on the Metropolitan Expressway is also nearby, making access by private car also convenient. Transportation to sightseeing spots like Ginza, Asakusa or Odaiba is also convenient.
Most of the hotel’s rooms are Western-style with single, semi-double, or double beds, but there is also one Japanese-style room with a feather futon so soft it virtually guarantees a good night’s sleep.
Hotel reception staff are happy to arrange cruises, sightseeing tours on the SkyHop bus, and more.

Guest room

Three different bed sizes are available in guest rooms.
