I've stayed here twice - once in 2009 and again in Nov 2014. I still think it's the best place to stay in Japan. From the airport, it's an easy 36 minutes to Nippori station by Skyliner. To get to Annex Katsutaro, you walk through a beautiful old village where there's plenty of treats for you to eat or take... More

An absolute fantastic experience! This ryokan is just around the corner of Yanakaginza, a local street with small local shops and eateries. 10 minute walk to Nippori station. We booked a deluxe room for 4 nights, the room is very japanese style with tatami mats on the floor and futons to sleep on. Very clean and neat. It also have... More

It is about 15 min on foot from to Nippori station. To get there, go out the NW exit and follow the small road until it dead ends, turn left and the Ryokan is about 100 m on the left. The walk involves going down some steps and passing through a small open air arcade-like area. Google maps makes it... More

The first thing one has to point out is the great location: just 2 minutes walk from the metro station (Sendagi, Chiyoda line) and 10 minutes walk from the JR train (Nippori station, Yamanote line), this ryokan is very easily accessible. Convenience stores, small shops and restaurants are also in very close proximity. The area itself is wonderful: located in... More

Annex Katsutaro Ryokan was my second place of stay after Oak Hotel and it was well worth it. I had no clue if the place would be great but i primarily took the place because it was close to Nippori station where i could take the Keisei Skyliner up to Narita Airport. To my surprise, the area is situated at,... More

This year makes the third or fourth time I've stayed at Annex Katsutaro. Other than futon on tatami it is more a small hotel than a ryokan. And that is just perfect for me. What makes it the top choice for me is the location. Transportation: being reasonably close to Nippori JR station and very close to a subway station... More

Stayed here for a week with family. Really nice place in a great location near Yanaka Ginza. Quite spacious, ensuite, free wifi, everything you need. Very quiet, I think they must have very good insulation and windows are double glazed. Never heard a peep from other rooms. Highly recommended
