Sleeping at Sawanoya Ryokan is like travelling to ancient Japan. The rooms are delicately traditional with origami and yukatas. The hosting family has endless advice to discover or rediscover Tokyo. We were charmed by the unexpected area wandering through temples to attend a tea ceremony....More

Hey Julie - the baths are used individually. They have two private, unisex baths (or they did a year ago!) - they have occupied signs as you’ve seen in the pic and privacy curtains as well. James
