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...

We decided on this place after much thought, and figured that the location and the hope of something less bland than a business hotel would make a decent choice. THE ROOM: Our perceptions of Japanese rooms was that they are all very small and cramped. We were pleasantly surprised at Katsutaro. I think it was a 6 tatami room. There...

My family of 4 had a nice stay at Ryokan Katsutaro. The place is kept clean and has a "homey" feel. The free use of computers was helpful when I need to research on places of interest. I would recommend taking a short cab ride (cost about 700 yen) from Keisei Train station when you have lots of luggages. I...

Conveniently located near Ueno station, this Ryokan offers beautiful rooms that are over and above anything you'd find in a hotel or hostel for the same value. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the whole place almost feels as if you are staying in someone's house which is an unexpected pleasure so far from home. The Japanese style beds...

We spent 4 nights in this Ryokan at the beginning of September. The ryokan do not require you to pay while checking in and provides tea, coffee and yukata for every one.

First of all: It's completely safe to come to Tokyo. Yes there were a couple of afterquakes (most of which barely noticable), but they've stopped completely now. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT cancel your trip because of the earthquakes. The hostels are in a really tight spot right now because travellers are afraid for nothing. And think of it...

We had a comfortable stay at the Ryokan. The moment we arrived, we were greeted by the manager who was very pleasant making us feel right at home. He gave some quick instructions and a guide map of surrounding areas. Our room was always kept clean and we had a nice rest after a long day of walking. The cable...

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood 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.
