We had a great stay at the Edo Sakura. The staff were very helpful throughout our stay and we particularly enjoyed the tea ceremony. We had a traditional Japanese room which we would recommend for the experience. The location is great - Asakusa is about a 30 minute walk away, and the nearest subway stop is a 5 minute walk.

Good location, 5-7 minutes easy walk from Irya subway station, not difficult to find.

Staff is friendly and helpful. We’re able to check in early when arrived.

Room is clean, small and decent. Futons are sufficiently comfortable.

We stayed at this ryokan for 6 days. It was very comfortable. Service is excellent. Staff speaks perfect English and is very welcoming. Location is very convenient to access the subway lines. The place is completely quiet. The rooms are perfectly clean. Highly recommended for a typical stay in Tokyo

As soon as we arrived we knew we had made the right choice. The styling of the hotel entrance is nice and the staff give you a very warm welcome. The location was a little further out than we expected however this ended up being a bonus. It was so nice to come back to The Edo after a hectic day sight seeing. The room was small but adequate ( we went for a western style). The breakfast was tasty with a choice between western and Japanese. This was a perfect start to a fantastic holiday in Japan.

Room Tip: Western style beds were comfy

Edo Sakura is perfectly located in a peaceful, quiet part of Tokyo, but still very well connected (Iriya station is a 5 minute walk away) with lots of shops and restaurants within 5-15 minutes walk. Ueno Park and its museums is a 15-20 minute walk away. Do ask for the hotel's local restaurant/shop recommendations and map, we enjoyed several gems including Goute Le Ble bakery (and a grocery store about 2 blocks further down that same street was great for buying inexpensive tea, snacks and tasty, good quality take-out food). Staff were genuinely warm, friendly and helpful, and spoke fluent English. We felt very well cared for. Our room was clean and calming. The tatami mats and futon beds were super-cozy and comfortable. The hotel's morning tea ceremony was a delight to participate in. There's a washer/dryer for those who like to travel light (or who sweated through Japan's recent heatwave). Our only caveat to staying at this lovely ryokan is that the walls are thin: the quietness of a stay seems to heavily depend on the sensitivity of other guests to the noise that they make in the hallways and in their rooms (i.e., voices and mystery "thumps" were audible at late/early hours during our 7 day stay). Because this ryokan is family friendly, and several young kids/babies were guests when we visited, this probably explains a lot of the noise. Anyway, especially if noise doesn't bother you, Edo Sakura is a wonderful ryokan to visit while in Tokyo.
