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.

Taito was a beautiful place to stay, we really felt like we had walked into a traditional Japanese home! For the price I don't think it is possible to stay anywhere better! When we arrived early morning we were able to leave our bags and get showered even though we weren't able to check in straight away. The rooms were... More

Great value place with real Japaneese feel. We stayed in the room on the upper floor with 3 bamboo mats/folding beds on the floor. It was my first time in Japan and it was the first place I stayed in and I could really see how a traditional Japaneese house looks like. It was an amazing experience. The area is... More

Really enjoyed my stay, SO affordable, and some of the cheapest accommodation you'll find in Tokyo. Close to loads of attractions, quite a few sights with-in walking distance, and some really cool spots if you're keen for a bit of a wander. Taito Ryokan in clean, tidy, homely, and the Owner is quite fluent in English and really helpful if... More

Taito ryokan is great because Satoshi is fantastic. Easy to find in Asakusa, clean, comfortable, close to subway, and great service. On-demand water system provides a shower at the temperature you like.

Very nice budget hotel. I enjoyed the traditional style of the rooms. The location, close to most Asakusa's attractions is great. There is also a nice public bath nearby. The place is also quite easy to reach from the airport.

A very simple location. But very cheap compared to the most Ryokan in Tokyo. It was only 3.000 Yen per Person. The staff is not particularly friendly but ok. The surrounding area (Asakusa) is absolutely beautiful!

We stayed in Room no. 1 (for 3 persons) on first floor in the early November. The weather was freezing but it was warm in our room. Heater and Japanese futon bedding worked perfect. Someone said that it is noisy at night cause of the paper wall but we did not face this problem. We can sleep well all night.... 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.
