We loved this ryokan, the hosts are so friendly, they had so many tips & recommendations, even walking us to a restaurant one night. It's a quiet place to stay with only 3 rooms right next to each other separated by paper walls. Please note...More

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
