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.

This hotel is a 10 - 15 minute from the Nippori station and a 5 minute walk from a subway station. Coming from Narita with the express train it is the first stop. Ideal when just arriving from overseas with serious jet lag. The hotel is pretty nice. Mats on the floor, so that

Excellent place!! Very close sendagi station and walk by 2 Min. Clean and quite place.The 7-11 store is opposite the ryokan. And can walk to Yanaka-Ginza only 1 block. So next time when we go to tokyo again, Annex ryokan is the first choice that we need to reserve.

This is my Go-To place in Tokyo when I play tourist. I love the idea of an "easy going" Ryokan that provides a modern, concrete design with Tatami mats and traditional, but simple, rooms are great. I use a hotel room for sleeping and storing my luggages. And Annex Katsutaro

A new favourite affordable ryokan, and perhaps even better, a new favourite area! Yanaka is great and even at peak cherry blossom viewing time, relatively relaxing. The ryokan is within walking distance from Nippori Station and ueno Park. The atmosphere at the ryokan is very

We stayed 5 nights at the Annex Katsutaro Ryokan and really fell in love with the family running and the place. Our room had a comfortable size. The tatami floors were inviting and our futons comfortable. We did asked for an extra futon in order to be real comfortable. Our room

how to get there
You can walk there from Nippori station. Actually most of the way is via pedestrian-only street, so if you don't carry too much luggage, it's worth walking anyway. Otherwise take a taxi (we took one from Tokyo station).

Hi Julio. The JR line is just the basic city train line like we use here in Australia. Most of it is above ground, but some is underground like a Subway. Seriously, Google Maps really helps you in Japan. As it tells you exactly what trains to catch and when and where the stations are. Google a place in Maps and then push 'Directions' and it'll show you the best way. You have to buy tickets to all trains before you get on them. The ticket machines will be in the stations, and there is an English button on the top right of the screen which you should push first. You do have to work out on the big map above the machines how much Fare to pay (there will be a price number where your destination is) and buy that ticket. You can buy 'Day' tickets which are good if you are using the train a lot in a day. Basically from Narita airport, for simplicity sake, don't use the JR line, get on the Keisei Skyliner. It's a different brand of train but it goes straight to the station near your hotel, instead of you needing to change trains. Get off at Nippori station, and walk directly West. There are English signs that tell you the West Exit. Keep walking up a small hill, and then you'll get to a fork in the road, for fun I would say take the right-hand road, go down some stairs, and walk along the Wanaka Ginza market street. At the end, turn left and walk maybe 100m and Annex Katsutaro is on your left! Easy as that!

Hello, do you allow baggage storage before check in? (Like at 6:00AM?)
"Third floor with street view and bathroom worked for us."
"Check the room to see that it fits you, but bear in mind that a more spacious room costs more."
"make sure you have a western style bathroom,"
"The traditional tatami rooms are plain (of course) but very comfortable."
"The rooms are all much the same"
US$66 - US$229 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
