Toco Tokyo Heritage Hostel is a traditional style Japanese hostel known as a 'Ryokan' .The all wooden building was built in 1920 and renovated in 2010.

On the premises, there is a large quaint Japanese garden full of greenery, singing birds, and beautiful koi in our pond. It has been registered as a cultural heritage landmark.

Please enjoy the calm atmosphere and feel the Japanese mind of 'wabi' and 'sabi'.

We also have a separate bar and cafe lounge area. People from all nations can relax in a friendly atmosphere.

Truly memorable place to spend your precious time is here.

Our hostel is located on the North Gate of Tokyo, Ueno. It is famous for Ueno Zoo, Art museum and Ameyoko(a big arcade for shopping). You can enjoy these interesting spots even by walk.

In addition, Ueno has a good location. We can access to the city from Narita airport directly and we can take a bullet train (Shinkansen) from the station as well. It is really convenient for travelers from all over the world.

Ueno is in Taito Ward and the ward has two aspects, 'Metropolitan' and 'Shitamati'(it means old and quaint town in Japanese). In this area, there are Asakusa which is the most popular spot for travelers in Japan, and Nezu, Sendaki, Yanaka: these cities have 'good old Japan' atmosphere.

That's why, when you walk on a small alley, you can feel as if you had been transported to the past. You may come across some old buildings and views of old days. By foot, bicycle, train...you can choose your way to move as you like to enjoy this area.
