We were travelling with our two teenage kids so we had the family suite on the top floor. Nice view and great to have the bath just down the hall to relax in each evening. The Japanese breakfast was fun - completely different dishes to sample each morning. We appreciated all the amenities in the room - toothbrushes, tea, sweets...... More

Ryokan Asakusa Shigetsu is a nice place to sample some basic traditional Japanese customs at a reasonable price, such as communal bathing, sleeping on tatami and futons and having miso soup, steamed rice and fish for breakfast. Added to that is the great location: right in the middle of lively Asakusa, one of the two communal tubs offers a view... More

This was our first stop in Japan and we were very pleased. Great location at temple and easy walk to SkyTree. Warm welcome when we arrived late from airport. Staff were always very gentle and considerate. Loved our Japanese style room. Think we are going to get futon mattresses for home now. Did not have hotel breakfast as we are... More

My first visit to Tokyo and this was a great introduction. The staff were extremely friendly and the japanese room was great. The hot water bath on the top floor was a great way to finish each day. And the location is very central, close to the station and temples. Great value for money. No negatives at all.

This ryokan is in the heart of Asakusa district, next to Sensoji temple and Asakusa metro/ train station. Also, Nakamise-dori shopping street is 2 minutes. I had a japaneese style room and this is what I recommendations for everyone who is going to this Ryokan. It is a nearly built ryokan, but still, much better than a western style hotel........ More

The japanese breakfast is very good to start the walking day, and afterwards, an ofuro bath a pleasant way to relax. The hotel is just behind Asakusa market, also close tho Asakusa shrine and pagoda.

This was my second time in this shigetsu. A very nice place to stay, with a typical japanese decoration. The location is just behind Asakusa market, and some meters from Asakusa temple and Pagoda, with metro station nearby from where you can reach any other place in Tokyo. Its japanese breakfast is a good way to start the day In... More

Shigetsu was nice ryokan and good value for money. The rooms are small, the place isn't dirt cheap, and it's seen some wear & tear, but that's how most ryokans are. We stayed in a 2-person room with a small child, and barely fitted. The most difficult item to handle was our luggage: three big suitcases, a stroller and two... More

We were travelling for three weeks in Japan and stayed for a week in Tokyo Asakusa Ryokan. It is very near Asakusa Shrine and it is located at the center of Asakusa residential area. There are numerous shops and restaurants all aroud it. There is always something happening at the Shrine. We had lovely tempura at nearby restaurant. Ryokan is... More
