In a quiet neighbourhood, with some good local bars/restaurants, good access to public transport and with some genuinely friendly and helpful staff Andon Ryokan is a great place to call home in Tokyo for a few days. Be warned the rooms are small, but they have everything you need, as have the shared facilities (toilets,showers,kitchen). Everything is spotlessly clean and... More

My son and I forgo the standard western hotels to stay at the Andon Ryokan to get a "feel" for Japan. Best choice made. Not only did Andon Ryokan provide us the tatami style rooms and Japanese breakfast, the rooms had all the comforts for an enjoyable stay. Andon Ryokan offers sake tasting, sushi making and other related seminars in... More

We visited Andon in 2015 cherry blossom period. Rooms: comfortable, cozy. They do well for a night's rest. Try taking the ones away from the common bath, or you'll hear constant footsteps and swinging of doors early in the morning. Neighbourhood: Quiet, peaceful area (like most of Japan Im sure) with everything a short walk away. Dont expect glitsy malls,... More

The Ryokan Andon is a modern-fashionable Ryokan. It is cleaned and quite, the staff is nice and friendly, ready to satisfy the customers requests. The only thing, but I think it's normal for a Ryokan, you can hear everything happens around you, even if someone have to wake up at 3:00 am to take an airplane. Pros: it has a... More

This Ryokan is located in the north of Tokyo and is relatively easy to get to. The Minoa Metro Station is about a 5-8 minute walk and Asakusa is relatively close.

We found this Ryokan a little difficult to find when walking from the Train Station but a friendly Taxi driver helped us & led us right up to the discreet entrance. The best clue was the row of drinks vending machines, right beside the building. We received a warm welcome from the hostess, despite our late arrival. We were offered... 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.
