Wakana is currently closed.
Walking into the mazy roads of Kagura-zaka where nostalgic landscape of old Tokyo still retains, you will find this Japanese style ryokan surrounded by black-lacquered wooden fence (if you don't get truly lost). Established in 1954, because of its location and nostalgic interior and exterior architecture, Wakana has been favored by many people who love the atmosphere of good old Tokyo. Since the landlady of Wakana is an elder sister of Michiyo Kogure (1918-1990) who was one of the Japan's representative actresses of Showa era, it has also been regarded by many film-makers, and is still known as the "screenwriters' inn".
