Stayed here for 5 nights. Wonderful traditional inn, very convenient location in Asakusa in the Senso-ji temple complex. Clean rooms, the small bathroom is typical of a Tokyo ryokan, the fridge in the room was very efficient and the air-con worked well. Great views of the Skytree especially from the onsen. Reception desk open until 11pm. We use ryokans in this area of Tokyo when we are in town to go to the Sumo as it is a mile or so away from the stadium. The ryokan is a short walk from the Asakusa Metro and not far from the Sumida River. The staff were friendly and helpful which is consistent throughout Japan. I didn't try the breakfast, though other guests said it was very good. We opted for the traditional room, sleeping on the floor. Being careful not to wear shoes on the tatami mats. Excellent ryokan would stay here again.
Asakusa is a great location to stay in Tokyo, its small alleys lined with market style stalls selling food, souvenirs and all kinds of trinkets etc. on the walk way to the temple is interesting and a fun way to while away some time. It’s a lot better than staying in a hotel on a busy road. We wandered out each evening to eat ramen or to get an ice cream sandwich or a matcha latte and felt the busy day unwind, not an easy thing to achieve in Tokyo.
We were told that it’s a family area now and is not an exciting location like Harajuku, however given we had older parents and children in our group it was the perfect area. For me the location of a hotel is as important as the hotel itself. There is a pharmacy, a Starbucks 2 minutes walk and a 7/11 5 minutes.
The Ryokan is in a perfect location. The rooms are traditional and small but not small for Tokyo. The staff are lovely, very friendly and their English is good. The onsen was good and is open until 11pm.
I also recommend the breakfast, both the traditional and western, lots of food and very reasonable.
If you want a Ryokan and are travelling with children this is a great place to stay in a really good location. The subway is also a leisurely 5 minute walk.
We took the room on the 6th floor and it was good to have the extra sitting room (though costs more) as well as the sleeping area. We had access to a balcony and some glimpses of the temple and shrine which were great at night when lit up. The onsen is also on the 6th floor which makes it convenient.
There is a lift, fresh water available in the foyer, toilets in the foyer. It’s not luxury accomodation but all you need for a comfortable stay.
This was my second time staying at this ryokan, the first time with my husband. I loved it just as much this time. The location is right off the Nakamise Market with easy access to the shops, metro, and temple. It's always bustling, but the side street the ryokan is on is quiet despite being so close. The room was spacious and the Japanese breakfast was delicious, though you may want to brush up on your chopstick skills if they aren't the best. We deboned fish every morning and one time had clams in the miso soup, which was a challenge. The bath upstairs was also nice and had a good view of Tokyo Skytree. I absolutely want to go back!
This is a charming ryokan in the heart of the Asakusa district, which is very close to plenty of restaurants and shopping areas.
Cons: The room can get a bit stuffy (I stayed in May, but I imagine it could be bad in the summer). The bathroom is on the smaller side, but not untypical to Japanese standards. The concierge closes at 11, so this is not a convenient place if you want to stay out later.
Pros: Very friendly staff. Breakfast is filling and reasonably priced for what you pay; worth ordering at least once. Great location. The baths are public but were never too busy when I was there (if you want to go, go between 10 and 11 when they are least likely to be crowded).
The location, cleanliness, and traditional style were what I was looking for. I was very pleased with my stay here.
The staff is the best helpful and friendly.Room is clean and quiet.Also great location close to Asakusa Train station,Sensoji temple and so many shop and restaurants around...will definitely back here again soon.
