Tokyo Princess Inn - Encino

The Inn was once owned and operated by American film legend John Wayne, before his rise to stardom. Encino is also home to other notable figures, such as the Jackson family, Britney Spears, Selena Gomez and Ron Howard among many others.

The current Inn, once known as the “Encino Inn Motel,” underwent a complete renovation to the Japanese style country inn it is today. It is decorated with extraordinary artwork from all over Asia.

In 2011, the interiors of the rooms were refurbished with modern, updated furniture. The result is a refreshed outlook while still keeping in step with the traditional style of the Inn.



The Inn is conveniently located within walking distance to the shops and restaurants of downtown Encino. Encino is a suburb of metropolitan Los Angeles. There are many great places to see and visit. All of which are nicely located nearby.
