Hotels near Tobu line Asakusa station 2007/8/10 07:09
Tokyo 23-ku
Wwe are arriving at Narita around noon on a Thursday and want to spend that afternoon and night adjusting and then leave for Nikko the next day. It sounds like the easiest route to Nikko is the Tobu line. So we would like to stay the 1st night in Asakusa, as close to the train station as possible.
We previously stayed at a ryokan called Shigetsu which we liked, but I have no idea of whether it is near the train station. Also, it was a difficult trip, by subway, to Asakusa from Narita with our suitcases. About how much would it cost to take a taxi from the station where the train from the airport ends to Asakusa?
Thanks a lot.

Shinjuku - Nikko trains 2007/8/10 09:16
Jay,

This doesn't directly answer your question, but you should note that there are also direct JR/Tobu trains that run from Shinjuku and Ikebukuro to Nikko - albeit not as frequently as the service from Tobu Asakusa. As these stations are also served by the Narita Express, you might find it more convenient to stay at a hotel in Shinjuku or Ikebukuro.

A quick search of google shows exactly where your ryokan is located:

If you have lots of luggage then taking the train direct to Ueno might be your best bet then taking a taxi to the final destination.

On the map (Number 3) is Tobu Asakusa Station, and (number 2) is Toei Asakusa Station, it is possible to ride from Narita Airport to the Toei Station, if you take the Keisei Limited Express from narita airport to Oshiage Station, if you make a cross platform transfer at Oshiage station and get on a Keisei Oshiage Line train, that train continues onto the Toei Asakusa Line to Asakusa Station.

Otherwise I recommend making your way to Ueno Station (you can also take the limited express to KeiseiUeno instead of the skyliner) and taking a taxi to the Ryokan.

If you take a taxi you should print out the Japanese page : or address to give to the driver:
