As the world of hotels continues to evolve, hanare presents an endearing concept: rather than a single building, the whole town can be your hotel.

Founded by Hagiso, the dispersed hotel makes use of a network of local places in the Yanaka area. Accommodation is in a renovated house, meals are served at the Hagi cafe and bathing takes place at the local sento.

The short journeys from place to place provide a chance to explore the neighbourhood, while the friendly concierge can provide local insights to guide you along the way.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live in Yanaka, hanare is the perfect place to get a taste of everyday life.
