I am normally a budget traveller so staying in this ryokan was a little expensive for me but it was truly worth it!
- The location
Ueno was the perfect place for me because it was quiet and had easy transport links.
You are a 15 min slow walk from the station.
Ueno station had a direct link from Narita airport. Keisei line is 1000 yen and 75 mins. Skyliner is 2400 yen and 40 mins. Both are comfortable rides.
It was a twin room. One double futon was in its own room and a single futon in the living area.
There was an air conditioner and heater both adjustable for your comfort.
Japanese style table and cushions to sit on.
Kettle, hair dryer and tv.
And we had a bathroom.
Best to take a shower at night to ensure full pressure and hot water.
1 man and 1 woman who were both extremely welcoming!
The man spoke good English and explained the check in process and the room well. Curfew at 11pm but you can come in later with no problems, you just need to use a code to get in.
It was a great place to stay with the zoo, shrines and Tokyo national museum right on your door step!More
