For a different experience we booked this family owned Ryokan for our holiday in Tokyo. The room we booked was very spacious and had its own ensuite, however some other rooms were without this facility and used shared shower and toilet. We had air-conditioning too which was very welcome as temperatures were in the high twenties during our stay. Sheets... More

It is situated in 10 minutes from Skyliner, and was rather easy to find. Not far from it there are Ueno Zoo and Ueno Park. The room was clean, we had a teapot, tea, etc. We used the shared shower and toilet but everything was clean. That is rather nice and calm place to have rest after arriving to Japan.

My daughter and I spent four nights here as a unusual option for a Japanese experience. We were not disappointed. Friendly and helpful proprietors in a small guest house/ryokan. The room was a decent size for a capital city with room for two futons, a wardrobe, shelving and a small eating area. Beautiful crisp white linen changed daily! The aroma... More

Two friends and I visited Japan for the first time in November of 2014 and decided to stay at a proper ryokan. We found Katsutaro Ryokan and decided to try it out. Our stay was an absolute delight. Granted we did not spend a lot of time in the actual ryokan as we merely slept and regrouped there. The staff... More

The ryokan is located in a residential area, about 10-15 min walk from Ueno station (5 min taxi). It is run by a family who takes great care of guests. We stayed there for 4 nights in one of their room with private bathroom. Although the building is old, it kept very clean. (They clean room and change towels everyday.)... More

We've just stayed here and really enjoyed our stay. The location is off the main drag of Ueno in a quiet suburban street, but still only 15 minutes walk from the action (ie, good for a quiet stay). The room was clean and a good size, and I recommend paying the additional extra to go for a full sized room... More

Was disappointed by the bedding. It just didn't seem clean. The comforters were very old and gross. They were dated from the 80s or 90s, and someone had obviously spilled coffee on one of ours and it left a disgusting stain. In Japan they tend to put a fitted sheet/douvet cover over the bedding, so we weren't actually touching it,... More

We stayed in a family room at Katsutaro. Immaculately clean and the most comfortable futons we slept on for our entire trip to Japan. The location is brilliant. Wonderful for our children to be able to walk down to Ueno Park to visit the zoo. Easy walk to Ueno Station and Okachimachi markets as well as the galleries and museum.... 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.
