I stayed here in March 2015 and really enjoyed my stay. The room was nice if a little small. My wife complained the ladies toilet on the ground floor was cramped. Nonetheless I was really pleased with the Ryokan. It's clearly aimed at tourists and the staff speak pretty good English, which means they can give some friendly advice. The... More

Stayed in a lot of places during my JAPAN trip this time. I would say this is my fave! And I'm glad I stayed two nights. Should have stayed longer! If only I had time! Friendly staff & very helpful!!

I've stayed here twice on two separate trips and next time I'm in Tokyo I'm probably going to make it a point to stay here again. They have a bath on the top floor that can be reserved as well as a deck with a simply amazing view of the surrounding urban landscape as it disappears into the much more... More

While we had some difficulties finding the ryokan, we were very happy when we arrived. Staff were very nice and helpful, and our room and facilities were clean and modern. There is a loop bus that stops nearby and takes you to Asakusa centre for just 100 yen. Staff had great recommendations for sites in Tokyo. We would recommend and... More

I thought the common area was cute and was not bothered by the small room size. However, during our stay there were several families and young children staying that made our three nights at Andon UNBEARABLE. This is not a place for children. The common area seats around 14 people all up and each floor has tiny rooms and small,... More

Thank you very much for staying with us and taking the time to write your comment to us. I am truly sorry that you had such a disappointing stay because of our inadequate consideration.

Very lovely Ryokan with a nice terrace and Jacuzzi (for free)! Stayed there with my brother at the beginning of our Japan trip, and really enjoyed it. Nice and clean Hotel with very friendly staff! We liked it that much, that we came back here for the end of our trip.

I like this little place and it clearly has a very professional reputation of which the management are very proud and to which they remain attentive. It is a bit of a trek from the airport but the excellent instructions provided in English made it easy. Andon Ryokan has many layers and space is at a premium here. No inch... More

A ryokan is a traditional Japanese Inn. Think of it like a B&B complemented with the common rituals of Japan: tea, tatamis, hot tubs, no chairs and silence. Now get some young and modern architect design one of these B&Bs and what you get is the Andon Ryokan. Perfectly located near a subway station and a few blocks from many... More

We stayed for three nights at Andon Ryokan and we loved it. This is the real deal. Tatami mats and futons and small rooms, with a great host of lovely Japanese women.

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.
