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.

... 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 ...
... they sell. Apart from the things you expect to see like chopsticks and fans, they sold the most extraordinary food! How would you like a Wasabi KitKat? Yeah...I'd pass too. I came across my first major language barrier too. I was getting by with 'hai' (yes) and hand gestures buying gifts - with a non-english speaking Japanese lady.
From there we went to a sewage treatment plant where we learnt about how Japan is treating its dirty water to make it ...
... on to the
seconds elapsed in which everyone including me scrambled on to the train and I
waved goodbye to Maeda and I settled into my seat and watched the countryside
of Fukushima prefecture slide by through the wide window. I was worried about the
early sunset and my entry into Tokyo city with absolutely no idea of how to
reach my hotel. I got down at Tokyo central and made my way ...
