Ryokan Asakusa Shigetsu, Tokyo $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
At this modern Japanese inn, located in historic Asakusa, the staff uniform is kimono. Guests have a choice of 16 Japanese-style rooms with tatami, futon mattresses, and a shared bath, or six en suite Western versions with beds. Both options gain you access to the traditional wooden tubs on the top floor, where at night there's a lovely view of Senso-ji, Asakusa's most famous temple. There are other touches that serve as reminders that, despite the Tokyo Sky Tree looming above, you are staying in the city's old town: Japanese roof tiles decorate the floor, origami cranes surround the register, cotton yukata robes are for sale in the lobby, and a traditional Japanese harpist serenades guests at a monthly concert.—Updated by Rebecca Willa Davis
