I would highly recommend this place as a convenient and inexpensive place to stay in Tokyo! Kenichi was extremely helpful and responsive in our emails back and forth prior to our arrival, even making us reservations for dinner (and trying over and over to call an upscale sushi place on the 1st of the month before; no luck on that,...

My sister and I decided to go to Tokyo very spontaneously. After sending an E-mail request we received a positive answer within only 10 minutes! We already felt to be very welcome, as Kenichi (host) wrote in a very friendly and amicably style. The Ryokan is a small charming hotel within a short walking distance from Tarawamachi metro station in...

congratlations,Tokyo for winning the host of Olympics 2020! Japan for me, I have mixed feelings which means good and bad. I was taught a lot history about that period, negative, of course, however, that‘s the past. Modern Japan is high technology, the world of animation, onsen, bird residence (鸟居), Japanese TV drama, and self disciplined people. It is beyond my...

This Ryokan is a great little set up. Very clean, great location, 5 mins walk to subway. Very easy to access Tokyo yet stay in a peaceful older area. Traditional style but with a modern twist. There are only 3 rooms - shared bathroom with shower toilet and double basin downstairs but no dramas. very clean and was always free...

My wife and I had never been to Japan or Tokyo, and Tokyo Ryokan was the first place we stayed during our 12-day trip around the country. We loved it and would recommend it very highly -- but would also caution travelers unfamiliar with this sort of place to read its description carefully before booking. Here are some key points...

We stayed five nights in Tokyo Ryokan, a small ryokan located in Taito, with a convenient walking distance from the closest metro station (Tawaramachi / Ueno). The area was quite peaceful and was nice to return there after a day of exploring the buzzling Tokyo. The ryokan was quite easy to spot based on the given instructions. We chose to...

This place was ideal for us to stay for 5 nights in early June. The low-key Asakusa district was a relief to come back to each day and whatever advice we needed the hosts were happy to help with. Senso-ji temple is so beautiful and the area fun to visit. Near the ryokan was an excellent okonomiyaki place, a ROX...

The kindness shown to us at the Ryokan is one that has resonated through out our interactions with the great people and culture in Japan. The close proximity to the Sensoji temple allowed us to experience a flower arrangement, where Buddhists gather much like a Church does on Sunday. Although not on our itinerary, we went for spontaneity, were welcomed...

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.

“Essendo le pareti tra le stanze fatte di carta, è inevitabile sentire tutti i rumori circostanti tra cui il rumoroso sciacquone del bagno, perciò forse le stanze Fuji e Tsuki (non confinanti direttamente con quest'ultimo ma davanti ad esso), sono leggermente più silenziose.”

“They only have three (3) rooms so best to book early. Also, you can "combine" rooms for a larger space if you're traveling with family and/or friends. There's a Don Quixote discount superstore very nearby to buy tons of Japanese snacks and food and goodies very cheaply!”
