# Inherit the history of RYUMEIKAN Ryokan

We got to go back to 1899, about 115 years ago.
It was Meiji period, the early modernization of Japan.
"RYUMEIKAN Ryokan" was opened in Ochanomizu, Tokyo.
15 years later, two more ryokans were opened near Tokyo Station and retain a good business!
Until 1923, the ryokans were destroyed in the Great Kanto Earthquake.

After several years of reconstruction,
[Ryokan Ryumeikan Tokyo] was opened in 1963 in front of Tokyo Station.
And the main ryokan in Ochanomizu was renovated in 1975.

Getting along with the speed of development of the Japanese economy,
Ryumeikan from the traditional ryokan become "RYUMEIKAN Corporation."
After the fancy traditional Japanese restaurant <Hanagoyomi> was opened,
and the renewal of Yasesu RYUMEIKAN in 2009,
all led to the birth of today's [Hotel Ryumeikan Tokyo].

In 2014, the main building in Ochanomizu was renewed again.
That is today's [Hotel Ryumeikan OCHANOMIZU HONTEN]
