"Very helpful staff"
We loved the Edo Sakura, mainly because the staff working there were so helpful and nice. The futons were terribly uncomfortable for our Western backs, though, so we won't be back. But the shower was incredible. My husband said it was the best he's ever used. Just big enough, and with great water pressure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ryokan for the first time."
This was my first time at a ryokan, and it was quite the experience. The rooms are quite small, and of course you sleep on the floor with a futon. The staff asked us to make our own beds out, which was quite weird. The hotel is really clean and very new. There was only 5 Japanese TV channels on tv, and nothing else. The location of this place is a […] 10 min walk from Uguisani station, and a little hard to find when you don Know where you're going. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Introduction to Japan"
The warm welcome from Yoko as we stepped through the door at the Edo Sakura was much appreciated and was followed over our 4 night stay with continued excellent and friendly service. Our Japanese style room was immaculate and the operation of futons etc. very clearly explained. The optional western or Japanese style breakfasts were good value and tasty. […] The free tea ceremony is a nice extra. The hotel is well positioned to get to Ueno Park or Asakusa on foot and is a short walk to the metro system. Highly recommended.

"We love edo Sakura!"
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Tokyo especially because of our stay at Edo Sakura! It was easy to get to from the ueno station which is the end point of the airport train. We transferred to the hibiya line and took the train to iriya station which is only one stop away. After following directions from helpful trip advisor users, we […] got to the hotel which is about 500 meters from train stop. Front desk was friendly and efficient and spoke English well. We were briefed about our traditional style Japanese room. You can order breakfast the night before and you'll have it hot and perfect the morning after. There are two small baths downstairs and each bath is big enough for two people. There is a tea ceremony which happens every morning from 9:30am till 10. We missed this one though.:( Staff is very knowledgable about the area and always willing to help. I've already suggested the Edo Sakura to other friends who will be traveling to Tokyo. What a great find! Good rates too! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent place but 10min walk frm train station"
The guesthouse is very new, well kept - one of the prettiest we stayed in. The room was relatively spacious, tatami-style with shower and toilet built in. If we had more time, we would have used the hot bath as well! The only drawback and significant for us (because cabs are so expensive) was the long walk to the train station. The closest is a 10 min […] walk (Uguisudani station), and a little further away is Ueno station (cab it for about USD7). The place probably makes sense if your plan is to stay in the Ueno, Asakusa area. For us, we were constantly going to Shinjuku / Shibuya and the train ride there is about 27 minutes.... so geographically this was not a great choice! The hotel itself though - is tasteful, clean,new and overall v nice ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Un hôtel parfait. Un peu loin de la gare de Ueno, mais à part cela, PARFAIT.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

極好Genuine Hotels.com guest review
到了江戶櫻花飯店，第一個驚艷的是它的裝潢！很傳統的日本風格，讓人覺得舒服！再來是服務人員，英文的程度蠻好的，所以對國外旅客而言溝通不是一件困難的事情，然後也很親切的會與我們聊天！再來是對茶道的體驗，蠻有趣的，師傅會跟我們說關於日本茶道的習俗，可以體驗看看！早餐的部分，我吃的是８００ｙｅｎ的早餐，很美味，但是飯量有點少，對於食量大的人而言可能會有點不足。房間的部分，住的是傳統雙人房，大小還可以，裝潢很典雅。整體而言超喜歡這家飯店的！如果下次有機會再來東京，我會再次入住這家飯店。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Kodinomainen paikka, ystävällistä ja siistiä"
Puhdasta ja siistiä, uusi ryokan. Meillä oli japanilainen huone, nukuimme hyvin rauhallisessa ympäristössä. (Puoliso kaipasi tuolia, se länsimaisessa huoneessa.) Aamiainen oli mieleinen, vaihtoehtoja löytyy kolme ja omia toivomuksiakin meille toteutettiin. Pienellä maksulla järjestyy kuuma kylpy sekä pyykinpesu- ja -kuivatuskone.. Läheltä löytyy ainutlaatuisia […] paikallisia ruokapaikkoja (kysy henkilökunnalta suositukset) joissa selviää vaikka suomenkielellä - henkilökunta luultavasti. puhuu vain japania. Mutta maukkaat ruoat tulee eteen ja hintakin tosi kohtuullinen. Edo Sakurassa kaikki toimi kuten toivoisi ja saimme vastauksia ja ohjeita kysymyksiimme. Kannattaa tulostaa mukaan karttapiirros Edo Sakuran sivuilta, se helpottaa paikan löytymistä. Läheisiltä metropysäkeiltä helppo liikkua ympäri Tokiota - tai muualle. Helppo siirtyä myös Naritan kentälle. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel accueillant !"
Situé à une station de métro au Nord de la gare de Ueno, c'est une bonne alternative aux quartiers agités de Ginza ou Shinzuku pour voir la vie des vrais gens dans un quartier résidentiel type ''ville basse'' sans gratte ciel mais sans s'éloigner pour autant des attractions de la ville. Le personnel est anglophone, extrêmement gentils et disponible; […] on retrouve le style japonnais des chambres où on déroule son futon le soir et où on dort, drappé dans son pijama japonnais. Le ptit dej, facturé en plus, offre différentes possibilités. Pris sur des tables collectives et servi avec grand soin, c'est une excellente occasion pour échanger avec les autres résidents. Seul bémol: on ressent bien qu'un énorme effort est fait pour rendre le lieu chaleureux, zen, et permettre aux résidents de passage de vivre ''à la Japonaise''. Dommage que la salle de bains de ma chambre ait été aussi impersonnelle (plastique...!) ; disons que c'est la qualité de tout le reste qui fait ressortir ce petit défault ...

"Charming and clean ryokan"
08/19/14 umshamrock plymouth, uk
Edo Sakura in Taito is a beautiful, clean and comfy. I loved my room - I had my own private shower and toilet and it was not that expensive either. The futon was great, the room was quiet and I slept well. The metro is only 5-10 minutes away (Yamanote Line or metro). The staff was ultra helpful and kind - the accepted my Takyubin bag and it was waiting in my room when I arrived. it was the rainy season and there are umbrellas to borrow too! I would definitely stay here again.
"Holy Loved it!"
07/31/14 Pandoros Boisbriand, Canada
Alright, this was my first time in a Ryokan, and it was quite enjoyable. It was hard the first night, we were badly jet lagged, and sleeping on a futon was hard. The place amazingly clean, and beautiful. We loved it there, will return shortly. It's about a 10 minute walk from the train station. Typical Japanese rooms, small. Located in a residential area. Please try it out!
"Clean & New & Excellent Service"
07/30/14 The_Chans Singapore
This place is very new and I love that all the furnishing are new as well and is kept spotlessly clean. The service here is impeccable. Almost all the staff speaks good english and are all well-prepared for ALL the standard tourist questions like any good concierge in a 5 stars hotel. They were able to help all my questions on buying train tickets to other cities, location and opening hours of ticketing office, recommending good dining places nearby, cost of taxi to fish market etc. They were not only professional but friendly and personal as well so it felt like staying with good friends who really care about you. When we asked about eating options near the ryokan, we were given a map of the local area with the restaurants all marked out. At least 10 affordable restaurants within 10 mins walk, offering different types of cuisines. Must try the yakitori at the nearby izakaya, the best we've try in our whole japan trip. Another plus point is there is a convenience store that is opened from early morning till late night on the way to the train station. So we mostly buy our light breakfast on the go every morning or from the night before when returning to the hotel. Location of the hotel is 5-7 mins walk from the Iriya station which is a stop away from Ueno station. Convenient to travel to/fro the airport or the ueno train station to other cities. As the ryokan is located on a small side street we had a hard time finding it when arriving on our first night. But after finding the hotel, the location seemed much easier in the morning. The plus point is its really quiet at all times, so its for good sleeping in early or waking up late. We did not try the breakfast or the tea ceremony so i can't comment. There is a microwave oven in the dining area convenient if you feel like buying back. You need to book their private onsen in advance and pay for usage. Their onsen is small with only 1 shower head so you have to take turns to shower and you have to fill it up with hot water on your own. Overall, its an excellent choice for our first trip to tokyo.
"One of the BEST Japanese hotels (Ryokan) I have ever seen."
07/25/14 Shlomi T Nagano, Japan
This is by far, one of the BEST Japanese hotels (Ryokan) I have ever seen. The place is spotless !! So clean, staff is friendly, and rooms were very good quality. They even have a big Japanese bath, for you. Location is the only little minus, I gave, but not too bad and very well, deserve the small effort, of getting there. You will not be disappointed !! This place, should be a role model to how a Japanese riyokan should look like, wish there were more like this one, around the country. Will definitely go back.
"Modern, Elegant Ryokan"
06/16/14 Christine C Manila, Philippines
We stayed at Edo Sakura during the last leg of our trip, as we wanted to experience traditional japanese lodging. We looked at different Ryokans & finally chose Edo Sakura because of its lovely interiors & good reviews. After busy Ginza, we appreciated the quiet neighbourhood, enjoyed exploring the nearby streets & eateries, and its an easy 5-8 mins walk to Iriya station in case you need to explore further. Rooms are always spotless, futons are really comfortable, and LOVED, LOVED, LOVED our own little rock garden in our balcony! Rates are costlier than the downtown hotels ,but definitely worth the experience & warm hospitality!
"Great place to stay in Tokyo!"
06/08/14 Galileo_100 Tel Aviv, Israel
It is not easy to find a guesthouse like The Edo Sakura in Tokyo. This guesthouse offers you amenities like a Western style guesthouse, but also gives you part of the Japanese experience. We've been there for four nights, and enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is very clean, rooms are spacious (especially in Japanese standards...) and the atmosphere is calm and pleasant. The only thing that bothered us a little bit is the location, because it is pretty far from the central places in Tokyo. However, the guesthouse is in a walking distance from the Iriya staion, which is one station away from Ueno, but you should pay attention that the JR Yamanote line doesn't arrive to Iriya. That is one of the reasons we didn't use our JR pass during our stay in Tokyo.
"A+ for 10 day stay"
06/01/14 Igo4me pennsylvania, usa
In May 2014 we stayed here for 5 days at the beginning of our trip and another 5 days at the end. To start the location was perfect for us. From Narita 1 - 40 minute high speed train and a 10 minute taxi. Then a 2 block walk to the subway which will get you anywhere in Tokyo or Japan. A quiet residential neighborhood with a mini mart around the corner and various restaurants scattered throughout the area. 5 floors with a modern elevator. Our room was western and while small was very adequate when we arranged our things. 2 hollywood beds pushed together, desk, chair, safe, are to hang clothes and private bath. Firm bed and pillow were very comfortable. Very quiet so we sleep soundly. Yoko and the staff were friendly and helpful. They made recommendations, called restaurants for reservations and questions and wrote our requests in Japanese to take along. Breakfast was the best we had in Japan. Very clean. One night we boiled ourselves in their public/private bath overlooking one of 3 separate small gardens. Also, we did laundry in the washer dryer. Always an English speaker on duty. Nothing is perfect and the one comment is that although we got fresh towels each day, they are a bit worn. When you consider all of this and the price for Tokyo, you cannot do better. Highly recommended!!!
"Lovely Japanese ryokan"
05/26/14 Jclynes London UK
The Edo Sakura was our second choice as we found that the previous ryokan we had stayed at had closed down It’s a very modern building very centrally located in a quiet residential interesting area and transport wise, only about a 5 minute walk from Iriya station on the Hibiya line and a 10 minute walk from Uguisudani station on the JR Yamanote line and about a 15 minute walk from Nippuri station. Although it’s in the Ueno area please note that it’s not close to the park, being about a 30 minute walk or a one station train ride from Uguisudani station which disappointed my wife I would suggest printing the map on the hotel website to help find it which could be difficult otherwise. We stayed for 5 nights in a 6 mat Japanese room and for a final night we were upgraded to an 8 mat room The 6 mat room was fine, certainly big enough, with a separate modern toilet/shower. The bedding was nicely stored in a cupboard in the room and we were expected to lay it out at night and store it away in the morning. There was very little space to store cloths etc There was a kettle with green tea bags and a small flat screen TV which we never used. Wi-Fi was readily available, but I suffered from dropped connections, which may have been my computer rather than the Wi-Fi itself The 8 mat room was obviously bigger, had a separate toilet and bathroom and although on the 5th floor had a small garden which was very pleasant to look at. The staff could all speak English, were very welcoming and helpful We had the breakfasts – you had to order them the night before – there were three choices of set platters – two with bread, egg & sausage and one with fish. They were ok and obviously very convenient. Please note though that although they started serving at 7.30am they have to prepare each one so you don’t actually start eating for at least 10 minutes – important if you have a train to catch ! We felt it was good value for money - we booked it direct. So, a very pleasant ryokan and we would certainly stay there again and might even choose the larger room
"Traditional Stay in a lovely location"
05/14/14 SFayers Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
This was by far our most expensive accommodation of our 11 days in Japan, however, we did feel it was worth the outlay. The staff are excellent - very friendly and service minded. The building and room is very traditional and we enjoyed our experience of sleeping on tatami mats and futons. The room was kept spotless throughout and the room was always a haven of peace and quiet after the bustle of Tokyo. It was also within 10 minutes walk of the Yamanote JR line which meant we could use our JR pass for most of our inner city travel which was a great bonus. If you stay then be sure to try a japanese breakfast, observe the free tea ceremony and dress up in the robes provided and have fun taking pictures in the Zen garden with the Samurai sword :-) Stay here if you can!
"Great Ryokan in Taito"
04/24/14 smithbeachhouse Lake Cathie, Australia
My sister and I took our 12 & 4 year olds to Japan and our first stop was the Edo Sakura. Great location, easy walk to Iriya Station. The room was quite small with traditional Tatami mats. The futons were really comfortable and the quilts warm and cosy! There was a small tv and small refrigerator and nice bathroom, the room was spotless! Breakfast was served downstairs in a communal area by the lovely Yoko. You have the choice of western style breakfast or Japanese style. Cost from ¥800 There is a washer & dryer there aswell for public use for about ¥500. I would definitely stay here again.
