If you can't go often, make the trip at the end of Mar, the beginning of April. It's cherry blossom paradise.

Ueno it's another district of this charming city as Tokyo. In addition to the immense park there is not much else to see, or some cheap store here and there and the usual restaurants, in short, nothing compared to other neighborhoods with Asakusa and Ginza or Shinjuku. All in all it's nice to enjoy a pleasant and healthy walk along... More

Ueno is a bustling place in the north side of central Tokyo. JR trains and several subways stop here. Ameyayokocho (Ameya Shopping Streets) is a gem of bargain shopping items from clothes, bags, leather jackets, electronics, food and every day items as well as souvenirs. Visit several museums and temples and shrines within walking distance. Ueno park is a large... More

We stayed in Shinjuku at first, which was a nice enough place and relatively close to areas such as Harajuku and Shibuya etc. Then we went to Kyoto and a few days later back to Tokyo. That time we stayed on the other side of the city, in Ueno. It was a great area to look around in. Many small... More

It is like a microcosm of Tokyo with the numerous shops and travel attractions like the zoo, the galleries m the museum, the vast park (best day is Sunday where there are street performers galore!) and a really dizzying market area that sells both produce and dry goods. Great for bargain shopping and fashion items. Nice little eateries too.

We took the Metro to the Ueno station and must have exited the wrong exit. The station is HUGE so this was a bad mistake. We jumped in a cab and driver had no idea the area of Ueno that we wanted to go. Eventually he dropped us off at Yamake Cemetry. Fortunately we found other tourists who directed us... More

Great place to stay. The area across from the station has plenty of entertainment, shopping, restaurants and bars, but away from this area it seems like a quite little neighbourhood, with small streets and alleys to explore. The Ueno park is on one side of the station and on the other its only a few blocks to Asakusa and the... More
