Elegance in the heart of Asakusa

Travel back in time to old Edo Japan

Just a short walk from Asakusa’s famed Sensoji Temple lies an inn with over 60 years of history. Named after a famous kabuki play, Sukeroku no Yado Sadachiyo is an elegant inn set behind weeping willows, with a rickshaw beside the entrance. A trove of antiques, art, and traditional toys are on display in the inn’s Jishotei (literally, “the bell of time”) Lounge in which guests can relax to take in the historic atmosphere.

Experience a stay surrounded by Japanese antiques

A traditional guest room

Sadachiyo’s 20 rooms range in size from 12 to 37 m2 and are all equipped with a private bath and toilet. The rooms are individually furnished with Japanese antiques, furniture and art, bringing out the individual character of each room. Guest rooms are named after the different Edo-period firefighting groups that worked to keep the city safe. The halls and common areas are decorated with woodblock prints depicting the Sanja Matsuri, Tokyo’s most famous festival, as well as the actual tools used by firefighters. Sadachiyo is filled with antiques that elsewhere would be trapped behind glass cases, but to help guests understand the feeling of old Tokyo, here the owner has them out in the open to see—and even touch. The whole building has the air of a gallery from the past.

Feast like the merchants of old Edo

Sadachiyo offers skillfully prepared Edo cuisine, such as that featured in the works of Shotaro Ikenami, a famous novelist and gourmand known for his stories of city life in Edo Japan. Many of the dishes are inspired by traditional foods featured in the story Onihei Hankacho, an Edo-period police story. Every meal features no fewer than fifteen different dishes, each artfully served on its own plate. Guests can experience time-honored Tokyo foods like fish dumplings in a light broth, soy sauce marinated sashimi tuna, and the highly esteemed unagi-ryori, cuisine using the Japanese freshwater eel. Each plat of this rotating seasonal menu is an expression of Tokyo’s culinary roots.

Enjoy a seasonal tempura, sashimi and other delicacies

Relax in two different kinds of baths

Decorations at the entrance to the public bath

All of Sadachiyo’s rooms have a private bath and toilet, but for a more spacious soak the inn features two public baths. The first, Sakura ga yu, is made of fragrant Japanese cypress, and Gofuku no yu, made of black granite. Baths are separated by gender (alternating daily) and open to guests from 4:00 pm--10:00 am. The entrance room to each bath is tastefully decorated with woodblock prints and carvings that give a glimpse of Japan’s traditional public baths.


Performers playing traditional ballads
