We stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms were immaculately clean! Staff were very helpful with ideas, directions, dinner suggestions... The yukata provided was quite lovely and we ended up purchasing one for each of us. Breakfast was pleasant.

The Edo Sakura is the perfect place to stay in the Asakusa district. From the first moment on we experienced a very friendly, humorous host who put a lot of effort into making us feel comfortable for the whole time of the stay. Exceptional ! The rooms are very clean and spacious enough to stay there for more that a...

Stayed with my family(husband, two teenagers and my brother in law). Very lovely place to stay and everyone was so friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice but a bit small for three men. I stayed with my daughter, so it was just perfect size. It would be nicer if there are some chairs in the room. Breakfast was excellent, both...

If this is your first time to Japan, the Edo Sakura is a great introduction to local culture. You get to try on yukata, sleep on tatami, eat traditional Japanese breakfast, and try a tea ceremony. The neighborhood is also nice and quiet, a bit away from the bustle of central Tokyo. Great for visiting Asakusa, Ueno, and Akihabara as...

An amazing stay in the Edo Sakura! I was a bit concerned that I might not get used to the tatami style of sleeping. But I WAS WRONG! Everything was well organized and all facilities were of high quality. It has been one of the best sleeping experiences ever! Many restaurants were around the area and there were convenient stores,...

From the green tea and warm towel welcome as we checked in to the local map showing restaurants, cafés and grocery stores, the staff and the service at the Edo Sakura were excellent. Our Japanese style room was lovely - tatami matting, tokonoma (alcove with scroll painting), low table and chairs and paper screens over the window. We stayed for...

My husband and I stayed at the Edo Sakura for 4 nights and loved it!! The staff was great and super helpful. Room were clean and plenty big for us. We chose to stay in the Japanese style rooms and really enjoyed the experience and the robes were a bonus. We both agree that we'd chose to stay here again...

It was an amazing experience to say in a traditional Japanese ryokan. The futon bedding was very comfortable and all facilities of high standards. It felt like an authentic Japanese experience, just make sure to get a map beforehand as the hotel is a few blocks from the JR station. The neighbourhood was so quiet. Definitely an enjoyable experience!!

Enjoyed our stay at the Edo Sakura. The room and bathroom were small, but very clean and comfortable for the night. We really enjoyed the tea ceremony in the morning. It was the highlight of staying there. I really enjoyed the experience and being able to ask questions about the process.

Its our first time in Tokyo, so we decided to stay in a local, traditional part of town. Getting there wasn't so hard from Narita airport. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the decor. We had the western style rooms which was comfortable and plush,of course like any other hotel rooms in tokyo the rooms were a bit small but manageable....

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.
