We loved our three night stay here. We stayed in a Japanese style room with private Western bath. The neighborhood that this guesthouse is in is so lovely! There are lots of restaurants, convenience stores, at least one grocery store, a few bakeries, and several...More
Ryokan Annex Katsutaro is surely one of the best places to stay in Tokyo, it offers so much, its location in the Shitamachi (old Tokyo) area of Yanaka wonderful in itself and we found it close to so much around it.

First time in Japan and had a wonderful stay in the Annex. Here is the feedback.
1. Very comfortable futons (Westerners will be pleased)
2. Very affordable (10,500 yen per night) a bargain in Japan
3. Very clean (Japanese pride themselves on cleanliness)

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.

You can walk there from Nippori station. Actually most of the way is via pedestrian-only street, so if you don't carry too much luggage, it's worth walking anyway. Otherwise take a taxi (we took one from Tokyo station).
