This ryokan is an amazing location for tourists. It’s steps away from the beautiful temple. The staff are so friendly and breakfast was delicious. Unfortunately since it is an older building it is very musty. Since we suffer from mold allergies it was uncomfortable for us and we had to leave after one night. But it was a very quaint place.

Very clean and FRIENDLY; close to places of interest, but on a side street so very quiet. Very generous breakfast. The western style room is modest but large enough to be comfortable, and I loved the bath on the sixth floor - very warm and super relaxing.

The establishment is right by the historic Asakusa District, within walking distance from the Senso-Ji temple. If you get up early, it gives you a chance to see the popular landmarks, like the Kaminari Mon (the Thunder Gate with the distinct giant red lantern), before the crowd arrives. The area is full of great Soba shops, Udon shops, izakayas, and tempura places. The staff is the epitome of Japanese hospitality, always considerate, always in a state of readiness to help you. I like to stay in their traditional Japanese rooms and sleep with my face against the tatami mat.
