I stayed here with my husband for 2 nights ate the end of our tour of Japan. TRANSPORT: It is 2 mins from the metro, and 10 mins from Nippori station which is on the Yamanote Line (circle line). You can also catch the sky train to the airport direct from Nippori station. LOCATION: It was a nice way to...

If you are looking for a cheap Ryokan that's quiet this is the place. And it's still only a 2 min walk to the metro station or a 10 min walk to the JR Circle line. The room we stayed in was basic, clean with all the necessary essentials with ensuite. There is also cheap coin operated washing machines and...

Stayed here one night in August 2012, before heading home from Japan. Great location in an older section of Tokyo, very quiet neighborhood with a unique shopping street nearby. Close walking distance to Ueno and you can also find a Yanaka walking tour through Google. The staff here is excellent. The female desk clerk (possible owner?) spoke great English and...

We arrived the hotel at nearly midnight because we departed from Nagoya around 8 pm and got lost in Tokyo train station (curfew time was 11pm). However,when we arrived,the woman staff (I think she's the owner of the ryokan) was still waiting to open the front door for us. It's really impressive. :) The room was really nice, clean,and comfort...

If this hotel invested in some blackout blinds it would be unbeatable. It was very bright. We would go back, but we would take some fabric to cover the window. The service is friendly. The laundry is easy. Convenient location, one block from the subway and 10mins walk to the express Narita train. We explored all the major sights of...

This is great for a more simple stay in Tokyo, or on a budget. It is located in a genuinely nice residential/market area, with lots of interesting craft shops and restaurants/food stalls nearby. It is also excellent for the airport (take the Skytrain direct from Narita to Nippori station, from where it is less than a 10 minute walk), and...

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.
