This local ryokan located in the Asakusa neighbourhood is a lovely boutique option for travellers who want to experience something different to generic western-style accommodation. The ryokan is based on a traditional design with lovely crafted wooden and shoji fittings and other subtle modern design features. The ground floor has a tatami-mat common room with a small library and a... More

A nice hostel, excellent option for backpackers. Clean, close to the train station and to restaurants. The area is safe for taking a walk at night. You can met nice people there and enjoy the common hall (I met 3 people from Malaga, Spain).

I really like this ryokan. The room was very tidy and clean, very well taken care of. The thing I remember the most about this hotel was the owner, who is a Japanese man who runs this hotel with his wife. They were very friendly and very helpful to their guests. They didn't mind helping us arranging the trip, showed... More

A simply beautiful, well designed and maintained Ryokan on a quiet side street in Asakusa, near to Tawaramachi Subway Station. Spotlessly clean. It is however Kenichi and Fusako that make this place so special.Service above & beyond what one could ever expect. Kenichi personally walked us to Jakotsu-yu ( local sento- highly recommended) Sorted out our Gion Odori tickets, (... More

Tokyo Ryokan is wonderful. It is a great location near many tourist sites and subway systems, immaculately clean, quiet, comfortable, beautifully designed and well maintained. It was built and is run by a gracious young couple who have travel experience and know what to provide for a pleasant trip; they are also fluent in English. They know Japan, Tokyo and... More

Staying at the Tokyo Ryokan was instrumental for the beginning of our trip to Japan. The inn keeper is extremely helpful and very concerned that you have the best trip possible. He pointed out many things for us to do and even a great ramen shop close by. The Ryokan is in a quiet neighborhood which was nice for us,... More

We stayed for 4 nights and booked 2 rooms (2 adults, 2 kids). We loved the minimalist eco-style of the ryokan, the wonderful neighbourhood and particularly the welcome of Kinichi and Fusako, who went out of their way to help us out and have fun with our kids. For the price, it was an excellent stay and a great introduction... More

We enjoyed our stayed at this ryokan a lot. It was our first 2 nights in Japan and we must say it was a very warm welcome! The room was comfortable, clean and just big enough for us two. Shower and toilet were shared with the other 3 rooms, but they were always perfectly clean. Hosts were nice and spoke... More

I have stayed there with my family for a couple of nights before our return flight to Europe. And for the most part it was a good stay. Like some previous reviewers noted, this isn't your typical ryokan/hotel you may have been expecting. It is well located near the Ueno park (a couple of metro stops away) and hear some... More

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!”
