Ueno has lots to offer besides a massive connection station. The Yokocho Market its just around the corner offering lots of things from food to shopping goods, to lots of small streets full of petit shops. Its a great place to find bargains and to take home unique things besides the typical touristic stuff. It also has a small zoo... More

In addition to the majestic Sensoji Temple, in neighboring Asakusa district, this is an area with much to see and do. Wear good walking shoes--even with excellent train and subway transit, you are likely to walk a lot more than you do at home, and will see more than if you are in a car or train. We visited the...

The famous Ameya Yokocho market, or in short Ameyoko is round the corner of Ueno station and they have literally everything - clothes, dried goods - green tea/cuttlefish/preserved fruits, fresh seafood, pretty umbrella shops, shoes and sports goods. If u want some air-conditioning shopping, there is a shopping centre next to it. Even kids enjoyed the area because there is... More

Ueno has all of the interesting eating spots and small shops in one confined location. Get there early or on a weekday and browse through the shops within the section underneath the railway. Avoid the International Hawker stalls that have ruined Ameyoko-cho and instead look for a tachi-nomi 'stand bar' or izakaya. Bring cash. Be prepared for smoke and cigarettes.... More

Beautiful place with beautiful shopping places. If someone wants to shop in the local stores they have to come out of the railway station and roam around. people will love the the ambiance. Or else people can walk straight on the bridge that takes you out of the station and linked to a very High end shops (like Nordstorm).

Great place to blend in with local and get bargain of local fresh seafood and fruits. Also there are many izakaya and other restaurant open until late or even 24 hours. Easy access to Narita Airport or shinkansen. I've been couple of times throughout my trip to Japan, the Ueno park also rank as one of the top 100 place... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
