Stayed there for a week in a western room. The stuff was english speaking and helpful, Taito neighborhood was nice and quiet, with lots of places to eat and visit (not a city center, but the subway station was very close and getting around wasn't a problem). The western room was a bit small and with no storage space (few... More

We had a very convenient and comforting stay here for 4 nights during our recent visit . They neighborhood is very safe and quiet. There is a convenience store (24/7) a bus stop and a metro line less in than 5 mins walking distance. There are small many temples and shrines around. Our Japanese room was well kept and relaxing....

My sister and I wanted an authentic ryokan experience and this place was adorable. We got Japanese rooms, so we ended up sleeping on the floor on futons. They were comfortable, but I wouldn't do it again. With no headboard, it's hard to prop your head up if you want to read. For what this place is (a cute Japanese... More

The room was cozy and traditional, even though I had to have an extra futon, I very much enjoyed the experience. The soaking tub is a must, especially after a day of negotiating the subway, touring and shopping. We didn't have time for the tea ceremony, but the breakfast was always good. Staff exceptional, soooo friendly and happy.

We could not have been happier with our choice of the Edo Sakura. The ryokan is lovely and peaceful in a very quite neighborhood with the metro very nearby. We are from the US and the staff spoke excellent English and were so cheerful and helpful. Wish our stay would have been longer! BTW, the Tokyo metro is a dream... More

I'll stay here every single time I come back to Tokyo. There's a reason this little gem always sells out. Gorgeous traditional-style hotel tucked into a quiet residential area (wake up in the morning to the gentle sound of the bell from the nearby middle school). Offers both Western and Japanese-style rooms, but come on, don't come all the way... More

A nice, simple (in a good way) traditional hotel. First off, finding it from Uguisudani Station: Leave the station from the South exit. Turn right onto 319 (the first busy street you'll come to when exiting the station, it's clearly marked). Walk about 3 blocks and turn left onto 4 (Showa Dori - another busy street). You'll walk another 3-4... More

Our family of 4 (with 2 young kids) stayed in the Superior Japanese room. It has 8-mat which was spacious enough for us to sleep and there's still room for our luggage. One of the most important concerns when travelling with kids is the proximity to public transit and this ryokan is only 5-min walk from Iriya subway station. There's... More

The Edo Sakura is a lovely Japanese hotel located in a quiet section of Tokyo and near plenty of restaurants, attractions and transit lines. Aimed at the western tourist, the Edo Sakura is a very good value. The service is friendly and the rooms are clean. The filling breakfast (500-800 yen) and public bath (500 yen) are a bargain and...

This was our second stay at Edo Sakura. It was a pleasure to return. The staff is friendly and willing to help in every matter. The location is good, on a quiet street just a few minutes walk from the Iriya metro station, away from the hustle and bustle of other areas. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. Bathrooms...

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.
