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.

The room was alright, not anything special. It was clean, the beds were comfy, and our room had a pretty nice view of the pagoda, which is one of the big draws of Asakusa. I would consider the desk staff to be about average for anyplace but Japan, where service is generally

The hotel is probably focused on business customers but that doesn't mean individual sightseeing tourists are not welcome. We had a fantastic stay there in a great location with a really nice and modern room. In comparison to the other places we stayed in Japan this was the

Upon checkout,how do I get from this hotel to the airport?
Take a 4-minute cab ride to exit 2b of the Toei metro line. This line will take you directly to the airport. However, calculate your departure time with the train arrivals. Better to take the airport express line.

Take the monorail to Hamamatsucho station. Transfer to the Yamanote(green) line and go to Ueno station. Transfer to the Ginza line and go to Asakusa station. 5 minute walk from there. Use Google maps to show you where to walk.

"【Non-Smoking】Family Room"
"Higher is better, to get a view and avoid street noise."
"Ask for rooms on higher floors. It can get quite noisy staying in the lower floors."
"They have many different types of rooms so look around to what fits your need."
"Pick a room with a window facing Tokyo Sky Tree. It looks so gorgeous at night."
