Our flight actually got in at 3:40pm but by the time we spent time at the information center, activated our JR rail pass, and went to a ATM machine it was early evening....

Andon is truly unique in being a hostel/ryokan/boutique budget hotel! It is fantastic value for money, in the scheme of Japanese budget accommodation, and manages to be very funky-trendy but with hostel facilites alongside private rooms. he area is pretty quiet, but 5mins walk from the Minowa metro station. Everything is very japanese - from the cute reception and breakfast...

3 of us spent 4 nights here in May 2014. Overall I found the place has a 'hostel feel'. The staff are very helpful and speak English well (which is a plus compared to many places in Japan). Breakfast was very good and you have a reasonable selection from a 'postcard book'. You can also have breakfast on the roof...

Had an excellent experience with Andon Ryokan - I was a solo female traveler on a tight budget, and I didn't expect to stay somewhere so cool at my price range. It's not a traditional ryokan - I think it can be more accurately described as the world's fanciest youth hostel. It is very stylish - the tatami mats in...

I stayed here for 5 nights (and received a discount for the long stay) in April 2014. The location near Asakusa in North Tokyo was good because it is an inexpensive area where you get an insight into the everyday life of local Tokyo people. For example, there are a lot of old style sento (public baths) in the area....

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.
