Asakusa Hotel Guide – How to choose hotels in Asakusa

Asakusa is the are you imagine when you think of Japan. The town is in the north east of Tokyo in the west bank of Sumida River. The are spread around Sensoji Temple – the major attraction of Asakusa, and you see many vivid streets with stores and restaurants. There aren’t any better place than Asakusa to purchase reasonable souvenir. It’s a bit touristy, but that has met the old Tokyo people’s energetic character and making the town vivid and fun.

Who should Stay in Asakusa hotels?

Having a hotel is Asakusa is a very good choice in my opinion. Since it’s not on the JR line, it’s not the easiest location to get around Tokyo, but it’s also good to stay for the first 2 or 3 nights. The Toei Asakusa line has trains that directly goes to both Narita Airport and Haneda Airport, and the Ginza line that is starting from Asakusa goes to major subway stations of Tokyo such as Ueno, Nihonbashi, Ginza, Shinbashi (change to Yurikamome to Daiba) and Shibuya. Moreover, it’s a fun place to walk around even late night into the street with restaurants, and quiet temples after all tourist people left.

Asakusa doesn’t have major International brand hotels, and the only big sized hotel is Asakusa View Hotel located a few blocks west of Sensoji Temple. There are many premier business hotels and hostels. If you prefer large hotels or International brand hotels, you can look for one near Tokyo city center.
