Metro: Ginza's insider take:

For a thoroughly Japanese experience in the center of Tokyo, try this 11-room eco-conscious inn. A rare find, it's located in a skinny nine-story building a short stroll from the department stores of Ginza. Shoes are removed at the door, and from then on there are no phones or refrigerators, and absolutely no televisions. The only sound is likely to be from Japanese musicians practicing in the studio below. Rooms all have shoji paper screens and tatami floors; futon mattresses are rolled out at night in typical Japanese fashion. Everything is organic here—from the Japanese breakfast to the cotton in the mattresses. Some rooms are en suite, but there are also two shared baths—a classic feature of a Japanese inn. This place is popular among the kabuki actors who perform in the nearby theater.
