If your 1st stop in Tokyo is Senso-ji, this place works perfectly. City-wide subway stations are about 3 minutes and 15 minutes away (confusingly, the Tokyo metropolitan area has 2 subway companies; those times were to the nearest of each of their respective stations). The location is, however, a bit further from Ginza, the Tsukiji fish market (at 4:45am, it... More

Nice hotel 2 minute walk to the shrines. Older area full of tourists through the day but quiet at night and in the mornings. Lots of pop up cheap eats in the evenings. 10 minutes walk from Asakusa line station with direct train from the airport. Small rooms,staff have limited English but great location.

The Richmond Hotel in Asakusa is centrally located, being next to the Senso-ji Temple, the shopping area of Nakamise-dori, and the night light of local cafes/restaurants. The views from the elevator lobby are fantastic, especially at night, giving you an overview of the immediate area. We were there on a holiday weekend, and while the area was extremely crowded, the... More

The Richmond is everything you'd expect of a hotel in Tokyo. The staff are always polite and helpful and the location is ideal - almost in the Senso-ji temple precinct and within easy walking distance of a couple of metro stops. The buffet breakfast has western options but could be better would be my only observation.

I highly recommend this hotel when staying in Tokyo. The staff are welcoming and helpful, the rooms are small but adequate, very clean, a comfortable bed and they provide every amenity you could need in the bathroom. Our room overlooked the temple and the Skytree tower, lovely when illuminated at night. The breakfast had something for everyone and the food... More

We stayed here for 7 nights in April and were very happy. The hotel is very clean and centrally located. Right next to this hotel is the beautiful Senso-ji Temple which is illuminated of an evening. The hotel is also great for anyone who wants to do some souvenir shopping as on the opposite end of the Senso-ji temple (still... More

This was our first experience of Japanese hotels on our honeymoon this cherry blossom season. We had no clue what to expect other than hotel rooms in Japan tend to be small, especially in Tokyo.

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.
