I definitely recommend staying at Toco in Tokyo. My friend and I stayed for three nights in March 2017, and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. The staff are warm and accommodating, and the space is pure magic. Also, you absolutely cannot beat the price. The location is great. A quiet, "off the beaten path" neighborhood, that in reality is...

We stayed 2 nights in Triple room. Traditional japanese room had AC which come handy since the it was March and traditional japanese houses can get cold in winter time. Great location. 4 minutes walk from Iriya station gives fast and easy access to anywhere in Tokyo.

You'll find Toco's beautiful heritage building tucked down a quiet lane near Ueno and Asakusa neighborhoods. The front is a trendy neighborhood bar, and the rooms are in the back in the renovated traditional Japanese house. (This is one of few left in Tokyo; Toco is a little famous.) You'll get a tour of the grounds, which includes a garden...

Toco is by far one of my favourite hostel in Tokyo. It is a beautiful traditional Japanese guesthouse. The female room is very nice. It comes with a balcony. When I stayed there, I felt as I lived in one of the Japanese house on TV show. It is spotlessly clean. The staff member took good care of me. He...

A beautiful heritage building that offers a calming space to get some down time in Tokyo. Located near Iriya station means that you are fairly well connected to the West side of Tokyo (Shibuya, Harajuku, Shinjuku) though I found it quite a distance and that I had to really plan my trips over to the West side. Staying in Iriya...

Real issues with noise and darkness, but the hostel is gorgeous and delightfully atmospheric. Earplugs available but bring an eye mask if you need darkness. Located in an old manor house with lovely architecture and an extremely traditional feeling in some areas. Two showers, no bath. Two toilets (western style) on the main floor. Private rooms are tatami mat with...

The staff are super friendly and you feel like you're in a little piece of history staying here. Everywhere has sliding doors and tatami mats and the yard has a little stone bridge and lanterns and is very authentic. Breakfast the next morning is homemade and delicious! Good location close to train stations but also far away enough that you're...

This hostel locates at Iriya Sta, not Asakusa sta. But you're considered will be a success. Around this hostel is real Japanese ambience and non-touristy.

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.
