About 2km north of Asakusa, the contemporary Andon Ryokan is fabulously designed in form and function. It has tiny but immaculate tatami rooms and a spectacular upper-floor spa with a manga-style mural, which can be used privately. Toshiko, the friendly owner, collects antiques, which are displayed around the ryokan, and will serve you breakfast on dishes worth more than your stay.
Andon also has a full program of cultural events, bike rentals and laundry facilities. It's a five-minute walk from the subway.
Guest rooms feature tatami (woven-straw) flooring with traditional futon bedding. Each room is equipped with a TV and a DVD player. Toilets and bathroom facilities are shared.
The Ryokan offers cultural activities such as tea ceremony and flower arrangement classes. There is a launderette on site for guests’ convenience.
Andon offers a selection of delicious Western breakfasts, which are cooked to preference and served in the common kitchen.
Ryokan Andon is a 10-minute journey from downtown area Ueno.
