Stayed for 8 nights in this simple, cheap and straightforward ryokan in the middle of Tokyo, primarily in the Asakusa district which is a great area to stay. First of all, I have to highlight the insanely cheap price. Stayed here for 8 nights for less than 400 euro. Staying in a 10m2 room with a private bathroom, bath and...

Toukaisou is one of those places where I have to go whenever I visit Japan. The hostel is clean, cozy and cheap. It's very close to the subway and the Asakusa Temple.

Toukaiso is a free and leisure place to stay in Japan. Good location with 24 hours supermarket, different kind of restaurants, shopping mall and Skytree nearby. Its just take about 5-6 min from metro. I had already stayed in Toukaiso for three times, and I will be back next time.

We were looking for a hostel that allowed travelers to stay only one night. This place was perfect since it was in a great location, close to the subway and food options and the staff were all very friendly. Accommodations are simple but clean and all you really need for a place to lay your head.

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.
