Check out Ameyoko Street for shopping, it's an open market - with most vendors selling seafood, both fresh and dried. There's a really popular store Niki No Kashi in Ameyoko that sells a huge range of sweet and candies. My favourite place to shop in Ueno!

Please note that the JR station charges commuters who enter at one exit and leave via another exit. It was raining hard. After a long day, we were tired and wanted to just go to our hotel to check in. Our hotel was situated at the Iriya Gate. We entered Ueno station at the Central Gate, using our Suica Cards.... More

This place is great for shopping and yummy food! There's heaps of street-food type stalls that has lots of ethnic foods (not enough Japanese food though to my disappointment) and plenty of stalls to do shopping. It's not the best place for fashion market shopping though, but great for food.e I can't remember the name of the place, but we... More

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.

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.
