The hotel is in a pleasant area close to Ueno, in what feels like au untouristy neighbourhood, but within an easy walk of the museums in the North part of Ueno. The room I had was impeccably clean, with a very comfortable bed on a non-smoking floor. The reception was friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet tastes home-made and is... More

I stayed here for only 1 night, but everything is satisfied. The traffic is convenient, just 2-3 minutes from Tokyo Metro Iriya Station. The environment is quiet but some shops and restaurants open until 10-11 p.m. which brought some sense of safety if you worry about going back late. The room is typical Tokyo size but a little bigger than... More

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.
