Tokyo Little House is an accommodation
and tourist space located in a 70-year old house
in central Tokyo’s Akasaka district.

Downstairs is cafe and gallery;
Upstairs, a private hotel.

Since 1948, our little house has watched the city change.

Story

Long a thriving pleasure district behind the national parliament, Akasaka came to symbolize the city’s postwar rebirth. Our little house, now surrounded by the bustle of different tongues and blazing lights, was built three years after the war when the area was still a field of ruins.

We spent half a year renovating this home to three generations so that visitors may glimpse Tokyo as it was seen by those who lived through the city’s postwar journey, from the darkness of ruins to the glimmer of today’s neon lights.

Stay

Located at the heart of ever-changing Tokyo, the second floor is now a mid-term private accommodation for up to five guests. The living room’s wooden windows, mud walls and family heirlooms recall the atmosphere of seven decades ago, perched just above the modern street below.

The fully-renovated space features modern amenities including a new shower and kitchen to ensure a comfortable stay for guests. Make this your home to explore the past and present layers of Tokyo.

Cafe

In the first-floor cafe space, guests and other visitors can enjoy curated exhibits on Tokyo’s history and leaf through a library of books, old magazines, maps, and other rare documents that reveal the city as it was seen by the residents, occupiers, and visitors of the past (guests may also borrow books during their stay).

Menu: Hand-drip coffee (¥450), craft beer (¥700), soft drinks, baked sweets, etc.
