So the place is easy to find and in a perfect location. Room was quiet enough. Shared bathroom was on a different floor but decently clean. Big BUT: mind the curfew: Midnight. If you ask nicely they might wait for you until 1 am but if your not home by that time, you're screwed. Place was decently clean and very... More

Wow, they were not kidding when they called themselves Hotel Kaminarimon. It's literally right next to Kaminarimon, like steps away. I wasn't able to visit Senso-ji or browse the shops leading up to it because of time constraints, but if I come back to Asakusa I would definitely stay here again, just because the location is so great.

It is a lovely traditional Japanese inn with an excellent location at the Asakusa gate. Very near to the metro.The room is clean and comes with comfortable futons and yukatas. The staff are friendly too and can speak english. For muslim travellers, you can find a halal ramen shop near the temple.

We really enjoyed our time at Hotel Kaminarimon. Perfect location-near sacred temples, shrines, restaurants and two subway lines. The hotel staff were gracious and helpful. The bedrooms were Japanese style and we slept deeply!

This was the first hotel my wife and I stayed in during our recent 2-week Japan trip, it was very easy to find - we'd got the Keikyu line from Haneda Airport straight to Asakusa, and once you exit the station just head for the thunder gate itself at the foot of Nakamise-dori.

By saying "right next" above, I really mean it. The ryokan is easily recognizable as a light brown building on the left hand side of the famous Kaminarimon (which will lead you to the Senso-ji after crossing the shopping street).

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.
