Stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed the place. With the Japanese style rooms it felt like we were really in Asia, but the western amenities (bathroom, fridge, etc) were welcome additions so it didn't feel too foreign. The location isn't exactly ideal, but it is good. There's very little to actually do/see near the hotel, but transport public transport...

We truly enjoyed our stay there. The hosts were lovely - the manager-lady could speak pretty decent English, recommended restaurants, introduced the subway system on our arrival etc. That helped quite a bit. They offer a western style breakfast (reservation required). There were two options - one was some toast and tea/coffee i think and the other one (price 840...

The ryokan is located in a really quaint area of Tokyo, but it is also in a very convenient location (about 11 minutes walking from JR Nippori station). Small local shops line the streets evoking a by-gone Tokyo. The ryokan was clean and fit 4 of us nicely in a traditional tatami room. The bathrooms are from the early 2000's,...

I stayed at the Annex Katsutaro in both 2014 and 2015, and would happily return again. It is a basic, but well-run modern ryokan just down the road from the main market street in Yanaka. The Sendai metro station is five minutes walk away and probably the easiest way in to town.

The staff are very friendly. The rooms are smallish, but not as small as we were expecting. The traditional beds are warm enough in winter, and the rooms all have their own A/C. The shower water pressure is excellent. The location is excellent. It's a quiet neighbourhood, but the hotel is very close to a great little market street called...

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night during our honeymoon to Japan and we had a great stay at the Annex Katsutaro Ryokan.

Have stayed in this hotel on 3 separate occasions. Interesting neighbourhood and close to the Yamanote line. Great value and lovely staff. I always book this first when planning holidays as staying in Yanaka has always been one of the highlights of my trips.

Lovely location, quiet neighbourood. Metro and Yamanote lines very close. Rooms are typically japanese, but, like it is been said by others, it is not really a ryokan... Staff very friendly. If I travel again in Tokyo, I would go back there.

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.
