This bakpak tokyo is an absolute nightmare you never want to have. I booked thru booking.com and I stayed exactly like I booked. I paid cash. The check in staff asked me rudely what I was smiling at while I was talking to my family, nothing about him. After that he began to be so rude through out the process.... More

Host was extremely friendly, help with translation when needed, referred lots of things to do, and even gave us a little souvenir when we left. Will definitely be back again! Rooms were traditional with sliding doors and lots of things in the common area

With all the good reviews I saw of this place, I was surprised and disappointed with many aspects, including cleanliness, staff, and location. We had booked and paid for a room at this place more than a month in advance, and had been travelling throughout the rest of Japan for a week and a half before arriving. On arrival, we... 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.
