We shopped in this area on one of our first days in Tokyo and really enjoyed it. There are tons of shops to wander and look. We found a "conveyor belt" sushi place just like in the movies. We ate there and the sushi was unbelievably good. I tried to bargain a bit at the stores but was not successful.... More

Visited this place mainly to see the Ueno Park. Unfortunately when I got there, the sakura was just beginning to blossom a little bit. This place is a nice place to walk around and relax, and see the locals hanging out at the park. There are some shrines, temples, pagoda and statues worth seeing.

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

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.
