Staying in Hotel Kaminarimon late March 2015 put the icing on the cake of a wonderful holiday. A long time can be spent analysing rooms and reception and tea making facilities etc etc of any hotel but to be made to feel "truly" welcome is rare in my experience. All the staff we met including reception (usually 3 or 4... More

This hotel is a wonderful place to stay. It is really close to trains, subway, temple, shopping, tourist information and loads of bars and restaurants. But it is the comfort and hospitality that make this the place to stay. The staff are so helpful and friendly. Nothing is too hard or too much trouble. When we couldn't do our laundry... More

I was surprised just how close the hotel was from Asakusa subway (about 1 minute walk!). I arriving from Tokyo station, it's a train ride to Ueno, followedy by 3 stops on the subway. The hotel is nicely decorated and has a nice vibe and helpful staff. We stayed here for our last night in Tokyo and it was really... More

The hotel is located right at the Asakusa Temple door. The Metro is a few steps away and lots of restaurants and groceries nearby. Asakusa is a bit way east in Tokyo but if you want to be near Ginza, Tokyo Station, Ueno and Akihabara, this is a good hotel in that vicinity.

Had a fantastic stay at this place. The staff are lovely - very helpful, courteous and all had enough English that we managed just fine.

We had booked a triple Japanese room but it turned out to be the same size as a double room with an extra mattress. And there was no room for our luggage. However, on complaining they gave us an extra single rom (without bathroom) for a nominal extra charge so in the end it worked out fine. The staff were... More

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in Japan. Since Tokyo is a very crowded city, Japanese style hotel rooms in Tokyo are very small compared to many hotels worldwide. But we are glad you have enjoyed your stay after all. We hope to serve you again soon. More

If you want to have a taste of traditional Japanese style inns , this is the place to go. They have rooms with either an attached bathroom or rooms sharing a bathroom.

Spent 7 nights in Tokyo and stayed here for 5 nights after a disastrous 2-night stay at a nearby hostel. This is a Ryokan style hotel. The hotel comes with rooms with and without bathrooms attached.

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.
