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

Ueno is a great place to spent a few hours, or a full day, when you're in Tokyo. There are street markets, great shops, a huge park and zoo, lots of restaurants and generally plenty to do. We always head to the huge toy story across from the station, five floors of toys from toddlers entertainment through to grown up... More

I like Ueno especially the park. there was so much to do like visiting the arts museum and the ueno park itself. It was summer when I visited but still, it was a fun experience. I enjoyed walking under the sun.

Must visit if you want to get shoes. Really deep discounts everywhere though it gets crowded and hard to move along. If you are looking for sports wear this is also the place to go. Just be careful of your belongings when walking in crowded areas.

Stayed here during my 2 visits to Tokyo. From Narita to Ueno, just take the KeiSei Skyliner - no change required. Many eateries and places of interest. Good for shopping too ;)

We were lucky enough to stay in Ueno. The area has it all. A HUGE market with hundreds of stalls selling anything you could wish to buy, the best toy shop I've ever seen, a beautiful park with the National Museum and zoo etc. You must come here if in Tokyo.

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.
