You can go to Ueno station if you really want to spend whole day with happiness. I love Ueno park where I can walk and breath in thefresh air. I visited the Ueno zoo to see Panda. I also like to walk in the market around Ueno staion.

Ueno for some people can be somewhat intimidating if your out and about beyond the lively areas especially at night. Daytime is good for visiting the park and zoo. some areas may appear to be rundown and there is a homeless population. Near Ueno train station which is a major station and transfer point is very crowded and bustling with... More

Silly and typical for a tourist, I know, but I did buy a pineapple spear here and it was DELICIOUS! This is a simple area to access right off the subway. The main intersection in the streets is fun since it is huge and you get to see all the pedestrians crossing together in a bustling crowd. The market itself... More

We stayed here because the hotel was very cheap and close to the station. We decided to spend a night walking around and there were a ton of shops to choose from. The shops varied considerably from golfing to fresh fish to fashion to quirky gifts and even adult shops. There were plenty of street food shops to stop at... 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.
