"Staff were very friendly, and about a 15minute walk from Ginza metro station. Room was clean except the washroom, it had a smell like a cheap hostel in Thailand. I think if the price was half what they are charging then…"Read all Hotel Asakusa Mikawaya reviews

About Hotel Asakusa Mikawaya
From our place, you can access everywhere in Tokyo on your foot or either main tourist spots.
Today Asakusa is festive and quaint. The crowds are drawn by Sensoji Temple, the Five Storied Pagoda and the traditional Nakamise shopping arcade. But for visitors between the sixteen and eighteen hundreds, the attraction was somewhat different - Asakusa contained the notorious "Yoshiwara", the city's licensed pleasure quarter.

Asakusa is the center of Tokyo's old downtown and is the thriving home to many temples.
The area's shops with their charming Edo facades and the hustle and bustle of the spirited local residents as made Asakusa one of Tokyo's leading tourist attractions for many years. Step through the Kaminarimon (thunder gate) to enter a long shopping arcade called the Nakamise which will take you to the Sensoji Temple also known as the Asakusa Kannon.
Sensoji is the oldest temple in Tokyo and remains very popular. There are many festivals and events in Asakusa throughout the year including the Sanja Matsuri (the annual festival of the Asakusa-jinja shrine, held in mid-May and famous as one of the three great festivals of Edo), the Hozuki-Ichi (lantern plant market), the Asakusa Samba Carnival, and the Tokyo Historical Festival.
