Tokyo Ryokan is nestled into a quiet residential area just few blocks from Asakusa Station. The Ryokan fulfills its promise of being a traditional Japanese in and upon entering visitors are greeted with the smell of fresh pinewood and tatami mats.
The interior, besides being traditional, is so clean and quiet that it’s almost comatose. The staff are kind and courteous and while they are helpful and do speak good English they are frequently not around during business hours which could pose a bit of a problem for tourists who need advice on where to go.
The Ryokan is located just down the street from a large shrine with tons of shops and restaurants for those wanting to take in the local culture and staying here has a more authentic feel, but it would be nice if the staff were a bit more available.Recommended for:

This “ryokan” was designed by the owners to be modern looking and minimalist. It’s really beautiful It also only has three rooms and it's cheap, so book in advance. My only complaint is that there’s no bath, but at this price, if that’s your thing, you can use a public bath in the area. The owner is easy to talk to and the “ryokan” is in a living neighborhood, with schools, temples, stores and sumo stalls, so it's a cool place to stay and go for walks. This is a really traditional area, so there are a lot of those little shops that are totally specialized. Like if you need boots for your ramen making uniform, or you want a little plastic replica made of the sushi you serve in your shop, this is the area to come to. It’s fun to walk around, even if you’re not in the market for one of these things.Recommended for:

This Ryokan isn't that big but it's cheap. Also this Ryokan's owner speaks English very well and knows a lot of information about what's going on around this ryokan. He talked to us about specific sumo players in the near by sumo stalls, so I imagine he keeps up to date on sumo events, so if you want to see a match while you're in town, he might be able to help you.
This place has a really peaceful feeling. It's a nice place to stay if you want to stay in a residential, rather than business area in Tokyo.
