We had promised my son we would take him to Japan for a couple of years but time has been difficult to arrange . We had just one week to give him a look at Tokyo and its environs. He had expressed a preference for staying at a Ryokan and my wife did the research.
Ryokan Katsutaro ticked all the boxes in the planning stage and didn't let us down.
15 Mins walk from Ueno train station that has a direct link to Narita Airport (41 mins and 2400 yen). Ueno JR station is on the City Circle line so all the major points of interest were withing 30 mins of Uneo.
Reasonably priced - for Tokyo
Traditional type experience ie sleeping on the floor but with a TV and free WI-FI.(plus PCS in the lobby for free use)
A multitude of restaurants of all types , budget and cuisines within 30 mins walk.
Uneo Park and Zoo as virtual neighbours'
A general store across the road selling everything from croissants to Sake and Cup Noodles in between.
The hosts are a perfect example of what we want when we travel - out of the way when we dont want/ need them and always available when we did need them. The little gift we received as we checked out was the cherry on the cake.
The place was clean and tidy and a joy to return too each evening after a day of walking and exploring
