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.

The rooms are your typical Japanese 3 star room - tight but well appointed. Service is exemplary. The included breakfast is about average - not bad but not great. Service was polite and swift. Location is great - within a couple of blocks of Sensoji Shrine and the boat

This hotel is located right near senso ji, the asahi brewery and some great food in the local area. The rooms are small but clean and functional. Service was excellent and breakfast was great and only Y1080 per person.

Upon checkout,how do I get from this hotel to the airport?
Take a 4-minute cab ride to exit 2b of the Toei metro line. This line will take you directly to the airport. However, calculate your departure time with the train arrivals. Better to take the airport express line.

Take the monorail to Hamamatsucho station. Transfer to the Yamanote(green) line and go to Ueno station. Transfer to the Ginza line and go to Asakusa station. 5 minute walk from there. Use Google maps to show you where to walk.

"【Non-Smoking】Family Room"
"Higher is better, to get a view and avoid street noise."
"Ask for rooms on higher floors. It can get quite noisy staying in the lower floors."
"They have many different types of rooms so look around to what fits your need."
"Pick a room with a window facing Tokyo Sky Tree. It looks so gorgeous at night."
