Toukaisou is one of those places where I have to go whenever I visit Japan. The hostel is clean, cozy and cheap. It's very close to the subway and the Asakusa Temple. It's perfect for group of friends and solo travelers. But what puahes me to return every time I go to tokyo is the kindness of the owners, which...

Love the place, really well located in Tokyo, near transportation but yet in a peaceful area. No noise at night. The staff is really helpful and there are a lot of info available to discover tokyo and its neighbour's town.

Toukaiso is a free and leisure place to stay in Japan. Good location with 24 hours supermarket, different kind of restaurants, shopping mall and Skytree nearby. Its just take about 5-6 min from metro. I had already stayed in Toukaiso for three times, and I will be back next time.

We were looking for a hostel that allowed travelers to stay only one night. This place was perfect since it was in a great location, close to the subway and food options and the staff were all very friendly. Accommodations are simple but clean and all you really need for a place to lay your head.

Great location, great service - staff is friendly and very helpful, clean rooms and bathrooms, hallway seems outdated though but the cozy common room makes up for it. I think I should have picked a better room though since we didn't get the traditional ryokan.

It was our first time in Japan and we chose Toukaisou because one of our best friends recommended it. And she was totally right; Toukaisou is located in one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods of Tokyo, Asakusa, very close to subway and tsukuba line stations. They're also surrounded by lots of shops and restaurants but without the high amount of...

I stayed at this hostel for 8 nights and I had the best time. The people who worked were all very friendly and kept the place clean to a high standard. The common room was great for sitting around with the other guests which meant it was easy to socialise. Overall I had a great experience here, nothing wrong at...

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.
