What is the closest JR station to the hotel? I need to reserve seats using my Japan Rail Pass and I understand that I need to do it at a JR station ticket window (and not at Haneda Airport). Thanks.
It's also good to point out that the closest stations are indeed Asakusa and Tawaramachi but these are metro stations, not JR train stations. And of course there's another Asakusa station - the one next door to hotel is a Tsukuba Express station while the other one (a bit further, behind Senso-ji site) is on the orange "G" metro line just like Tawaramachi. (I get a weird feeling that while I'm trying to clarify I just end up being more confusing :)
Agree with Pasi. Took a short taxi ride from Ueno to the hotel before. It was fast and easy.
I am not dure but you have « asakusa station » or « Tawaramashi »
I believe Ueno is the closest major JR station to the hotel (ca. 10 min / 1000 yen on a taxi). Akihabara is another easy to reach JR station via Tsukuba Express line as their station Asakusa is practically next door to the hotel.
