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.

We loved this place, the staff could not have been more helpful, from check-in, setting up the room and helping with breakfast and dinner locations. The rooms are very Japanese style, small and compact with a very small TV, but if you stay beware that this is true Ryokan in

We stayed in a Japanese-style room for three nights, and would definitely do it again. It's in a quiet area but very close to the metro stop, and only a short ride to major sights in Ueno, Asakusa and Ginza. We reached the hotel easily by the fast train from Narita airport

We stayed for two nights in a Japanese room. We arrived just before 11 p.m. due to train delays and were worried we wouldn't make it before the cutoff time for check in. We emailed the hotel and received a reply within minutes that there would be someone waiting for us even if

Traveled to Taiwan, Hong Kong and finished my trip here. Before booking my stay, I was able to communicate with the hotel regarding questions about my stay and within 24 hrs I got a response. Staff was helpful, polite and went above and beyond for their guests. Yoko and Glen are

For this visit to Tokyo, we decided to ditch western hotels and go a little more traditional, and what we found was a real gem. Hidden away in a quiet neighbourhood just one metro station up the line from Ueno (convenient for arriving from Narita on the Keisei Skyliner), the

From The Edo Sakura Thank you for contacting The Edo Sakura. The Keisei Skyliner is the easiest, fastest, and most comfortable way here from Narita Airport. You can take it to the last stop, Keisei Ueno, and transfer to the Hibiya Subway Line and get off at the next stop, Iriya. We are about 5 minutes from Exit 4. If you have much luggage, you can get off the Skyliner at Nippori and take a taxi here. It's about 10 minutes and 1,000 yen. Just give the driver our address and phone number if you take a taxi, and have him call us if he is at all confused about how to get here. If you like, we have an illustrated guide for directions from Narita Airport available on our homepage! We look forward to seeing you soon! Ayumi Osawa The Edo Sakura

Hi Emily, We arrived through Narita as well. However, I found the direction on hotel website. You can take the Keikyu line and transfer JR Yamanote line at Shinagawa station to Uguisudani station. After that you can either walk there app. 6 mins or take taxi(easier for you). On your departure day, you can have the hotel to call taxi for you. Hope it helps. Cheers.

Yes. A shower and toilet and sink for the room we had. Lots of water pressure. There is a soaking tub off the lobby that could be booked privately for a fee as well.

Yes, they have several rooms that are "western style"; you do have to ask when you make your reservation, though. If the western-style rooms are full, you can ask for and receive an additional futon or two to stack on top of each other. It's a good compromise. Also: It is about a 10 block trek from Ueno station. If you take the subway, Iriya station is nearby, also a small station on the train line one stop north of Ueno. It's a long trek with luggage. I took a taxi and found it very nice, quite inexpensive.

Our futons were all single so unless you have a different situation, I would suggest another one!
