The Space

If you are looking for a perfectly located self-contained apartment in the central yet easy/friendly neighborhood of real Tokyo, you don't need to look any further! The Apartment is in the middle of happening Asakua, One of the Tokyo’s most famous Shita Machi’s (traditional centers). Asakusa boasts some of the most traditional areas of Tokyo but also sits amongst the modern metropolis of central Tokyo.

Asakusa has historically been protected by the government to retain its atmosphere so as to showcase traditional Japanese craftsmanship and culture. The area is seen as a museum of all things Japanese(typically Tokyo) with an amazing variety of restaurants(eg. the best and most inexpensive sushi joints, the oldest Sukiyaki parlor in Tokyo , the first western restaurant in Japan, etc), shops(a 100 year old hand made knife shop, a 120 year old rice cracker shop, etc etc), and attractions(Sumida River Cruise, Hanayashiki Amusement Park, Sensoji Temple, Nakamise Shopping Arcade, and the latest, Tokyo Sky Tree, all in the neighborhood of the apartment.
The apartment is within an easy walking distance to the stations of all 4 train lines coming into the area, which offer our guests an easy/direct access to major destinations in central Tokyo including Shibuya, Shinjuku, Roppongi, Ueno and Ginza.
This will be the perfect base for you to explore the amazing Tokyo metropolis from, while living among a friendly and easy neighborhood, experiencing real Japanese life and interacting with genuine local people. Asakusa also has direct train access to both international airports in Tokyo; Narita and Haneda., which makes your arrival to Retro Tokyo a very easy one.
