We enjoyed our stayed at this ryokan a lot. It was our first 2 nights in Japan and we must say it was a very warm welcome! The room was comfortable, clean and just big enough for us two. Shower and toilet were shared with the other 3 rooms, but they were always perfectly clean. Hosts were nice and spoke... More

I have stayed there with my family for a couple of nights before our return flight to Europe. And for the most part it was a good stay. Like some previous reviewers noted, this isn't your typical ryokan/hotel you may have been expecting. It is well located near the Ueno park (a couple of metro stops away) and hear some... More

The location is undoubtably in a great place! It's near a subway (3mins walk) and near a lot of popular attractions including temple, hotspring etc. The room is spotless and always clean! The owners are extremely helpful and kind. However, before you decide to book there are other places that's worth more for your money and here's why: The place... More

We had the most wonderful time here in Tokyo. Our hosts were friendly and the facilities were clean and spotless. The ryokan is located in a convenient place in Tokyo, with easy access to public transport. Would definitely recommend to small groups or couples.

The 3 of us spent 12 days at Tokyo Ryokan in November '14 and what a great choice it was! Not only did we feel welcomed like long-time friends, but we also found a cozy, perfectly-clean, real japanese environment enhancing our whole Tokyo experience! Located in the fascinating, quiet Asakusa neighbourhood, Tokyo Ryokan only has 3 rooms available and all... More

Everything was perfect during the stay at this Ryokan! Rooms were kept in tip top condition & were very very clean! 5 minutes walk from Tawaramachi Metro (Ginza Line) & 10 minutes walk to Sensoji temple. Despite having shared bathrooms, we didn't encounter problems with waiting as they only have 3 rooms. A little bad point is that room separation... More

It was one of the smallest ryokans we're staying in during our visit to Japan. However small does not mean bad. It is very clean and cosy. Even though bathroom is shared, there is no problem with that, as Ryokan is really small, so there is never a lot of people. Owner can give you tips about really good, local... More

Let's start by saying that this lovely and traditional ryokan is wonderful. I stayed four nights at Tokyo Ryokan with my cousin, and we didn't find any flaw. Kenichi and Fusako are the two hosts and they gave us a really warm welcome, giving us suggestions about where to eat or have breakfast in the neighbourhood. The place is well... More

Beautiful, cool and comfy place to stay - a relaxed haven from the busyness of Tokyo. What really made this place special, though, was the hospitality of Kenichi and Fusako who gave us loads of useful local tips including great places for breakfast/coffee. We were very generously walked to a few places - way beyond the call of duty and... More

If you are on a budget travel and dont want to use metro, like us, this cozy ryokan is 20 minutes walking from UENO station. PROS: new, clean, cozy, helpful staff. CONS: you can hear everything happening in the next room, everything! So, the quality of your rest will depend on your neighbors...

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood 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.
