The Richmond Hotel was the first stop in our family's Japan holiday. We were pleased for many reasons with our selection of this hotel. Extremely accomodating staff. Great location (near major rail / subway lines). Dozens of nearby restaurants. And clean, efficient rooms.
We stayed in this hotel for 12 nights and it was absolutely perfect. The staff was so kind. We had some problems on our arrival and they helped us finding some medicines and more. The room was perfect, so I'm really surprised when I see...More
First hotel for 3 nights after arrival in Japan .We were very satisfied although we had been pre-warned about small hotel rooms in the large cities. I would look at paying more for a larger room in the same hotel. Asakusa location is great and...More
This has to be one of, if not the best, hotels I have ever stayed in. We arrived at the hotel around 11.00 am after a 19 hour journey. Although check in was not until 2 pm, the staff quickly found us a room and...More

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.
Sorry only just seen question. We did go. As others have said - nearest metro is about 15m walk, Get map of metro then easy to follow. Get IC card (like Oyster in London) to use all metro. Head to Tsukiji Station then 10 min... More

Note however, bulk of market has gone just a few indoor units (a better market to see is in Kyoto). However the packed side streets are full of excellent street food options. Enjoy Japan we loved it
