We loved the location of this ryokan, quaint local area with small shops and restaurants, really quiet at night yet a short walk to the train and minutes from ueno. Getting around Tokyo was easier and quicker than I had imagined by train and there is even a small bus that stops right outside to take you to ueno or... More

The hotel is located in a very nice neighborhood. The place is immaculate and obviously with all detailed amenities a ryokan can provide. The service, the attitude, the smile, the efforts, the practicality, the way you will be treated are of absolute quality. It is a very nice experience in every sense of the meaning.

We spent 3 nights there. A familial and traditional Ryokan, in wich we chose a Japaneses style room (futon). Room with Bathroo. Kind service in the nice Nippori district, near JR Nippori station and cats street. Highly suitable for a stay in Japan.

Annex Katsutaro is in a more suburban area of Tokyo than other places I've stayed. It's very easy to get to with great public transport links and the area is fairly quiet although with plenty of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.

The Annex Katsutaro is easy to reach by subway but out of the main stream of Tokyo tourist life. The neighborhood is sprinkled with traditional craft shops and stores that cater to both foreign and Japanese visitors. Breakfast is extra at the Annex but a fast Japanese breakfast place is just two blocks away and lets you dive into the... More

I'm not sure how first time visitors would think, but I've been to Tokyo several times and always stayed very near to the Ueno Station. This time I decided to stay a bit off - it's a few stops away from Ueno via the Yamanote line plus another ten minutes walk. But the location was really quaint. It's near to... More

Annex Katsutaro is a welcomed quiet retreat in Tokyo. Located in a traditional neighborhood, with great coffee, bakeries, and restaurants close by. Just a short walk to the JR Nippori line and subway. Annex has friendly and accommodation staff members and was a great place to kick off my Japan trip. I'd definitely stay here again.

We spent six relaxing nights at Annex Katsutaro in June, 2016. The tatami mats were beautiful, the futons were comfortable, and the place was astonishingly quiet for being in the largest city in the world. We loved walking along the narrow streets in the Yanaka neighborhood: great shopping, great eating. There was a tiny mom-and-pop sushi place just down the... 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.
