Fantastic traditional option”

If you are a foreigner looking to try the Japanese way of life, this Ryokan is a great start. Yes, the beds are comfortable. Ceilings are a bit low if you are tall; just remember to duck! Hosts are fantastic; though their English is limited, you'll get along fine. They offered us some cherries grown by a neighbor. In the weekdays, we were the only ones there, so it was like having our own place. Good location, 5 minutes to Nezu subway, 15 to Ueno subway. Lots of great local breakfast options nearby, convenience store ("conbini") across the street. Quiet, safe area. You'll observe lots of school children walking to school and commuters on their way to work. A perfect break from the craziness of the tourist spots.

Friendly, helpful owners. We had a clean, comfortable triple room & private bath. Quiet, mostly residential older neighborhood. 15-20 minutes walk to Ueno Station. Keihei direct train, Narita to Ueno. Easy walk to to Ueno Park & museums & Yanaka. Handy convenience store across the street. Enjoyed our stay & would definitely go back.

Nice traditional Ryokan”

Nice, clean, so Japanese

Feeling like local to stay at Ryokan Katsutaro, clean, many help from staff even not a very good english speaking accent. Near bus stop Taito city loop bus 100yen. From Ueno station is only 730 Yen by taxi. Walk by mere 10-15 minutes through park. Need to be quiet to mind other.

Must try”

I live the traditional Japan style house and room. My kids were very exciting as it looks like the house in Doraemon. It takes 15 mins from JR station and 5 mins from Metro station. The price is reasonable. It was a very good traveling experience. Highly recommend who likes Japanese style room.

Some what close walk, stairs are a little steep, but that's just nitpicking tbh... Good overal!”

Not many places to eat though... Pretty close to three stations, but though they and the park may seem very close on the map, walking around in the morning sun will quickly make you uncomfortable. Just don't go in summer. You would want to go in spring anyways cause the blooming of the flowers and other things... If you'd want to have a bike to go around in, just go to hotel Graphy (Nezu).
