We spent two lovely nights in a very basic but cute room in this cheap ryokan. The owner was extremely friendly and the whole place was real clean, offering tea and coffee for the breakfast. A very good option if you are looking for a cheap option and a traditionnal Japanese room in an authentic ryokan.

I found this ryokan on the front page of a major Japanese tour website, otherwise I may not have looked twice...it seemed too good to be true! It was very inexpensive to stay here, in a great location and was a delightful residence. It is a modified traditional Tokyo house, so don't stay here if you prefer hotel-style luxury. I... More

Even if the Ryokan is ok the man who take care of the guest house is unfriendly. Rooms are small and the cleaning wasn't so good. They are really better places in Asakusa as Toukaisou or Kaosan. I think the guy is fed up to see tourist. So, change your job !

The housing is inside a traditional japanese house that has been modified (badrooms and such) to function as a small ryokan, the owner, Satoshi, is very friendly and helpful. The ryokan itself is very near of Ginza line tawaramachi station. Air conditioning and wifi provided.

Santoshi was so good! He helped us find places to go and things to do. The rooms were nice and the beds were comfortable. There was an onsen around the corner to soak. The street was nice and quiet so we could get a decent sleep at night. I will stay there again when I go to tokyo next as... More

Good value but the facilities are basic. It's a ryokan style hostel rather than a ryokan. It was renovated a few years ago it but could do with an uplift, especially the bedding. Non smoking which was a plus point for us. We were greeted by a voice, not a person. He sat in a room near to the entrance... More

We only stayed one night here at the ryokan but it was wonderful and we can't say enough about the wonderful Santoshi-san who runs the place. The location is excellent, close to the old part of the city and very easy to get to Akiharbara via the subway. It was in the middle of winter but the place was quite... More

Had a great time staying here over new year 2014. A bit basic but everything clean and works well. Owner very friendly and helpful. Note, there is not a large communal space and maybe not the best for a solo traveller looking to meet people. Hostel well situated.

This place is close to all the affordable eating places and subway. Walking distance to Asakusa. The bathrooms and toilets are basic, do not expect luxury for the prices you are paying. One of the lowest cost Ryokan in Tokyo, you can't ask for anything more for this price! Great for those on a budget.

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.
