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.

Writing about the hot onsen itself, rather than the hotel since I stayed behind in Hotel Graphy Nezu(highly recommend btw!) 1650 yen per adult to bathe- check in at the first building and then make a right to the white building and go to the second floor. make a left and lock your stuff up and then proceed to the gendered locker rooms Onsen Etiquette for those who have never done a bath house 1. Dont bring too many personal items- you get small little lockers for keys and wallets and maybe cameras and phones but nothing larger than that- this is Japan and thievary is highly looked down upon but still, be careful. This Onsen seems to be frequented by locals, so I imagine crime rate is low and your chances are low but still. Here, the lock works as, make sure the knob is turned to open, choose your 4 digit code, then turn to close and then jumble up your numbers. choose your 4 digits again to open again. 2. Dont stare or oggle at people. Even if someone has nice gems, dont stare- incredibly rude in Japanese culture 3. Put your clothes into the baskets in the designated gender locker rooms 4. Dont go into the bath area with your towel- better not be afraid to go nude in front of people- dont worry, no ones staring, and you have no where to drape your towel anyways 5. wash yourself with soap and shampoo before going into the water. Youll get yelled at if you dont do this as this is contamination to the onsen and the people will not be happy with you. 6. The water is often between between 40-45 degrees Celsius, so bring one leg in at a time and lower yourself slowly, acclimating to the water temperature. I don:t recommend moving around too much bc your cold body cools the water around you, but if you move too much, then youll just hit fresh hot water faster 7. The water is usually natural spring water, so it is high in minerals- do not go in too long if you have low blood pressure ( you will vasodilate and just pass out after 10 mins), do not exfoliate yourself in there- its gross and youll get dirty looks- save it for when you get outta the bath and are rinsing down, do not talk too loudly here, it is meant for relaxation and cleansing. Try to wash your hair or keep your hair up- soaking your dry dirty hair in this water is not a good idea. The shower area is right in front of the springs itself- so deifnitely don:t be shy b/c you:ll be scrubbing down in front of others. 8. This place has shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body cleanse, and lots of lotions and oils for after use. There is a hair dryer, disposable brushes, cold water to drink, make up remover.

Beautiful Ryokan in Asakusa, I love that place, little traditional rooms with tatami, but also with modern private toilets, you can take a bath in hot water in traditional wood bath with sky tree tower panorama. The breakfast is very good, a lots of super taste traditional homemade food.

Ryokan was a little cozy for 5 adults, but fully equipped with all the amenities you could need. Friendly helpful service. Nice, well equipped onsen, though a little too hot for my comfort (hotter than others we visited.) Great location next to Ueno park with all of its museums and shrines. 10 minute walk from Ueno station.

We checked in then checked out. Room we were shown was so small suitcase could only be opened on bed. The room and hallway smelled strongly of smoke and cleaning supplies. Based on the price we were quoted this was no bargain. We have stayed in "charming" Japanese hotels and ryokan and unfortunately this is not one. Perhaps the Japanese style rooms are better as others have suggested, but the price was the same as Hilton and with the impending typhoon during our visit, we chose to stay in a more reliable location.

Great location, near Ueno Park & Ueno Zoo, but a bit pricey for the size of the room. This is a great hotel when you're looking for a traditional japanese room/experience. Don't forget to try the Onsen! :)
