The hotel is located at a very convenient place, right next to the JR Ueno Station which makes transportation around Tokyo and to other places in Japan very easy. The map provided on the hotel's website makes it very easy to find. The front desk staff is very nice and speaks English. They also keep luggage when you check-in early... More

one of the most reasonably priced hotels near Ueno Station. not the easiest to find as i was on a small street but the map on their website helped. easier to find if you are standing on the huge pedestrian elevated walkway outside Ueno station, with the unusual sculpture. Look for the Mistsui Garden which is big and the hotel... More

The hotel is located in a side street near Ueno station. We got really lost and went to a completely opposite direction because we couldn't figure our way around. So make sure you know how to find it (e.g. Google Earth) before heading there because there's too many exits. The hotel is very reasonably priced and in a wonderful location.... More

A recommendation from a friend, this was one of our top favourite hotels of all time in Japan! From it's insanely convenient location (just an overhead bridge connection away from Ueno station) to its comfortable rooms and decent rates, I would strongly recommend staying at Touganeya - especially if you are staying for 5 days or longer, as the prices...

I had a "large single" room for 3 nights. It was quite small, similar to a London hotel. It had a double bed that was quite comfortable, a small desk, a wardrobe for hanging clothes, but lacked any drawers or shelves for other clothing. The bathroom was compact but clean and utilitarian; it was a prefabricated design like you might... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel in July 2011. We had Semi-double room. It is small, but I think it is in the same standard with other hotels in Tokyo. The best for this hotel in my opinion is its location especially if you arrive and depart Tokyo by Keisei Skyliner at Keisei Ueno Station and even better... More

We stayed three nights at the hotel and were very pleased with it. The staff were always very helpful. The room had all amenities like tea maker, fridge, tv and bathroom had toileteries. Bed was very comfortable. The location is great as its just short walk to the Ueno Train station where you get trains going everywhere. Also really close... More

I stayed here for 6 nights last November, and really enjoyed my stay. The staff were very friendly - they spoke reasonable English and were always there to help out. We had a room on the second floor with a double bed - very small, barely any room around the bed. If you are travelling with more than a backpack,... More

My wife and I have been in the Hotel Touganeya for a week, and we'll be staying 5 more days. It's a 5-minute walk from the JR Ueno station (a major travel hub), the Keisei Skyliner station (quick trains to Narita) and two subway lines. It's six subway stops (160 yen ticket) from Ginza, three stops from Asakusa. The neighborhood... 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.
