Great Japanese vibe & decor! Helpful staff who speaks good english, nice breakfast, super clean room like most of the Japanese hotels. Surroundings are quiet and close to the metro. would definitely stay there again.

The Edo Sakura is a fantastic little Ryokan in a great location. A five minute walk from Iriya Underground Station and located in a quiet neighbourhood, with great local amenities. The 'Mini Mart' around the corner has literally everything you might need. Our room was small but perfect for two, we chose the 'traditional' style accommodation and slept on Japanese...

Our very first ryokan experience in metropolitan Tokyo (a refreshing change from the few western hotels stayed on previous trips. It certainly compared very favorably with the much more pricey experiences in resort towns like Hakone, Hokkaido, Niigata. First the location, it's well located in the Ueno/Taito area. Just head straight for Iriya subway station, exit 4 and it's a...

From the welcome to the departure, the staff at Edo Sakura worked tirelessly to support our stay in Tokyo. No matter who helped us, the results were the same in friendly mannerisms and an informal, yet respectful demeanor. As is almost everything in Japan, the hotel was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The hotel is within three blocks of the...

A lovely hotel with a cozy design. Friendly atmosphere and nothing to complain about. Easy access to subway and train stations and some good food places around (not too many). Our room was fairly small for a family but they got bigger ones. The view from the window is nothing special.

This place is amazing! So friendly in a lovely quiet location. Easy walk to subway! Yummy breakfast. Wonderful traditional Japanese experience. We stayed 4 nights which was great. Rooms only sleep four on the floor. Great little corner shop close by with everything you need and restaurants in easy walking distance. Not far on subway from Uno Zoo.

The staff at this small traditional ryokan made my five family members feel like part of their family during our four day stay in Tokyo. They always went out of their way to help us and their English speaking abilities helped tremendously. Highlights: - Great value - especially for a family of five over four days - Located in a...

We stayed at the Edo Sakura for 3 nights on a short break to Tokyo. My wife booked the hotel on the strength of the good reviews though I was a little sceptical. As usual she was right! We found the location excellent, the staff attentive and the room though small was very clean. Furniture is minimal with floor sleeping...

We wanted to try the authentic Japanese room experience and we chose Edo Sukura. Staff is fine, room is clean but very uncomfortable. Impossible to dress up and rest properly after touristic day. If you are planning to go for gala dinner, forget about this room. Bed is on the floor and as expected it is not very comfortable. Also...

The prices are good. One of the cheapest hotel prices I found. But not too cheap that's it's a hostel. It's a good experiment if you want to sleep on tatami mats. The service is great, they help with everything and they speak good English. The hotel is about 5 minutes max from Iriya station and about 10 minutes from...

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.
