"First time to go into Todai campus. "

I never been to Tokyo university even working near there, finally I entered the labyrinth.
This Shinto shrine, devoted to the kami of learning, stands on a hill just a block away from the apartment where we stay during long-term Tokyo visits. For years, it has offered me a shortcut when walking to the nearby University of Tokyo or to Ueno Park. I sometimes see students here, submitting small wooden plaques with petitions for success...
Here you will find the Shrine of Confucius, the Shrine of Shinno and the site of Shoheizaka College. It is a beautiful shrine area in the beautiful community of Yushima. There were wonderful sculptures on the day I visited.
I was pleased to finally have a chance to visit this historic house designed by Josiah Condor. It's wonderful that the city of Tokyo is preserving it.
The staff were friendly and provided English materials that helped us understand what we were looking at. Although it would have been cool if some of the rooms contained period furnishings, even without...
"Quite probably Firehouse does the best gourmet burgers in Tokyo."
reviewed 4 November 2017 by Roberts69
This has to be the best authentic gourmet burger joint in Tokyo. 'Firehouse' has been going for around 20 years and it has a certain casual character about it. It's not a big place but turn around is quick and there are also seats outside. I was alone so sat at the bar / counter which was great as I...
I had a great time to have Kushikatsu, which is one of Japanese traditional food of deep-fried.
I visited here with my friends as my friend's recommended restaurant, and we enjoyed some Kushikatsu with a glass of beer and sake. Kushikatsu was very tasty, hot and fragrant. This restaurant was old and calm atmosphere. I felt as if we have...
This hotel is located about 5 minutes from the Suidobashi station of the Mito Line, and a bit further away from the JR Suidobashi Station. Tokyo Dome is just across the street.
The hotel is actually the 4th through 9th floors of a building that has a "Don Quixote" discount store on the first two floors and a "Saizeria Family...
Last year my staying in this hotel was so good that I decided to come back this year too! Staff is friendly, room are clean with enough space and well equippeed.
Complimentary breakfast is a nice touch.
Sento on 6th floor makes the difference with other hotels in Tokyo.
"convenient location to Tokyo university, a very decent non-chain business hotel"
reviewed 9 September 2017 by olga y
For a business trip to Tokyo university, it's a most convenient location in a surprisingly quiet neighborhood off a busy street. The atmosphere is almost solemn (due to the academic clientele?), the Japanese and Continental options for breakfast were good (home made jams were a nice surprise). The place is very clean, but don't expect breathtaking views from the windows....
It is a nice and quiet hotel...But the room was very, very small..But as we used the room only to leave our luggage and seek the city that did not trouble us a lot. Hotel has a very polite staff, breakfast was good.
Probably the most satisfying stay i ever had in tokyo
The price is reasonable and close to the station. The staff are really helpfull and even remember your room numbers. It feels nice to be greeted with a smile and key room ready to be handed everytime you went back from exploring the city.
They also provide as much as...
