I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of a 3 week trip to Japan. Kenichi was fantastic from the time I arranged to stay here, with lots of help with travel, places to stay and ideas for my trip. Not only that, but he got me tickets to sumo and baseball before I even got to Japan. After... More

We stayed 3 nights at Tokyo Ryokan in May. Kenichi and his wife was very nice and helpful. They gave us tips for taking the train/subway and showed us a superb local cafe (February Cafe). Location was great since it's only 5-10 mins from the metro station and a few metro stops from Tokyo center, but located in a quainter... More

Stayed a couple of nights at Tokyo ryokan, and i would say that it was a positive experience overall. This is no 5* level hotel, you need to be aware of that before booking. Futons are thin and the walls as well so you can hear people talking in other rooms. The rooms are quite small too. However, the place... More

I have to start this review by stating that this place was simply not for us. We usually stay in four/five-star hotels but Japan being quite expensive and our experiences with business hotels in Tokyo and elsewhere not always positive we decided for a ryokan this time. Tokyo Ryokan comes well-recommended and in many ways justifiably so. It's an elegant... More

This place is small with 3 rooms and shared facilities but very conveniently located neat Asakusa and Tawamachi subways with a 20 min walk to Ueno Station which is also convenient to pick up the Shinkansen. It is also surrounded by tiny but fabulous and inexpensive restaurants. Kenichi san and Fusako san go out of their way to provide information... More

We stayed at Tokyo Ryokan for three nights and it lived up to all our expectations. If you are looking for a place that you can hang out in your room for hours on end, then this probably isn't the place for you as the rooms are smallish (3.5 tatami mats) and basic - no TV or mod cons so... More

As the title of my review hints, my stay at this ryokan was wonderful. I say this for the several reasons which I list below: 1. Great location - the ryokan is located in an older part of Tokyo with easy access to the metro and within walking distance of a few must-see sites, a hot spring, and great dining... More

Our stay here was nothing short of amazing. Tokyo Ryokan's website was our first taste of what to expect from the lovely couple Kenichi-san and Fusako-san who owned and ran this ryokan. Chock-full of useful information about Asakusa and Tokyo in general, it became the basis of planning our own itinerary and exploring Tokyo. It was also obvious that a... More

We tried to book hotel pretty late this time, so we didn't get the chance to stay here this time as it is full. But I am very impressed with the info they provided in the reply email to help us with the travel to Tokyo. They take care of non guests, I am sure they will take good care... More

Precision on how to get there : Follow their indications on their website. At first u'll see on your left a big temple(unidentified), a little further it's gonna be on the right hand side of a parking. The ryokan : very clean! Staff (Kenishi & his wife) are great, they have a very good english. Once we needed direction around... More
