Positives: Quiet, nice room, good location (within walking distance of stations and Sensou-ji).

Stayed for three nights, first visit to Tokyo. Enjoyed sleeping on the traditional ryokans. Everything was clean and tidy. Great Japanese baths. Didn't sample the food. Brilliant location, walking distance to some of the main touristy parts of Tokyo and walking distance to Ueno station....More

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.

It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
