Ten minutes’ walk north from Asakusa’s temple complex, in the traditional downtown area of Iriya, the Sakura is a friendly, traditional, family-run ryokan. Of the Japanese-style rooms, only two have their own bathrooms, while seven of the Western-style rooms have baths. There’s also a communal bath on each floor.
