Last week was the 5th time we travelled to Tokyo since 2009. And every time we go and stay at Toukaisou. Why? Because it feels like home. We had a ryokan-style room with a bathroom (shower+bath) equipped with big bottles of shower gel and conditionner, and toilets separated from the bathroom. The staff is really helpful and lovely - most...

Stayed two nights in April. A very convenient value for money friendly Ryokan hostel in location and inside with a decent Ryokan feel and comfortable, with personal conveniences considered. Good green tea and tea set. Location: convenient within 5 minutes walk of eateries and Asakusa and about 5 -10 minutes of various stations nearby. Skytree, Ueno and akihabara within a...

Perfect location (Asakusa), close to Tawaramachi subway station. Nice single room for a good price, with private bathroom and toilet. They provide hot water and green tea-bags. There is also a yukata. Clean and comfortable room. You sleep on a good mattress on a tatami. You have a good blanket and pillow. There is also a hairdryer and big mirror....

I didn't expect it to be very nice, but I actually didn't realize it was just a youth hostel and not a ryokan in any way. There is not much privacy since every room opens up to the common area (and anyone in there turns and stares at you each time you walk out). It is kind of rough around...

I came alone in Japan (first day) so I decided to try the traditional Japanese ryokan. I found this hostel based on the location I like which is asakusa. The location is great! Nearest subway station is kawaramachi. Initially, I had to asked one local along the way to find its location but after I went outside to eat Ramen...

This ryokan is quite near from tawaramachi station. I had a night stay in this ryokan. I came before check-in time so I left the luggage and by the time I came back during evening time, the luggage was already in the room. Small gestures which makes me feel homely.

I enjoyed staying here! They had clean facilities. I didn't hang around the common areas as much, but they had a nice communal space for everyone to relax and interact. I also enjoyed reading on the rooftop (had a table and a decent enough view). The location in relation to Asakusa was great!!! It was a short 3-5 minute walk...

We loved our stay here, easy way from narita airport and directions were simple. Room was super comfy and functional. Reception was friendly. And very much appreciate the drinking water and tea set! Room is small (like most budget accom in Tokyo) but it was perfect for us!

Stayed for 8 nights in this simple, cheap and straightforward ryokan in the middle of Tokyo, primarily in the Asakusa district which is a great area to stay.

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.
