TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Kaminarimon Taito
The rooms are what you want from a Tokyo hotel. Not huge but clean, well appointed and with an amazing location. Mere steps from Asakusa Metro station this is easy to find and in the heart of tourist heaven, where Kaminarimon Dori meets the Nakamise Dori market. Private bathrooms, clean comfortable futon and a great price. Would happily recommend. Make use of the local restaurants and cheap liquor at convenience stores.

... my leg ….... oopsies!!
Sadly at this point Ken called it a night, and we were dragged away kicking and screaming. This was obviously a problem in Lucy’s eyes as she expressed her concern that it might now be awkward for me, as she didn't want me to feel like I was third wheeling!

... we took a long weekend trip to Japan. After going into many stores and coming out empty handed, we were beginning to think we weren't going to find what we were looking for. Don't get us wrong, the teapots we did see where gorgeous. Most were decorated in traditional cobalt blue and white decorations, which were beautiful, but didn't seem like it suited us. That is, until we went into the last store of the day. This store seemed more like a market stall with everything stacked ...
... cruise from the park to Asakusa Kannon, the place our tour was cut short two days before due to rain and cold, to see what we missed. We spent an hour wandering through the alleys filled with small shops next to the temple. We then headed back to our hotel to rest. In the evening, our small group went on a train to Shibuya to see the "Hachiko" statue (made popular by the movie "Hachi" starring Richard Gere). This statue is adjacent to the busiest pedestrian ...
... a deep formal bow, who then in turn had to take an even lower bow (her head was practically touching her knees), due to the fact that I (a customer) had given her this "honor".
Having ritually humiliated the serving staff I went to sit down and drowned my shame.
To sort out the seating there was a lucky dip bag you had to put your hand in and pick a number, then find your corresponding seat.
I got number two and took a place at an empty table ...
