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

It's a must visit place whenever we visit Tokyo. There were a lot of stores selling dried scallops and seaweed. The price of these product at ueno is cheaper. Also there were a lot of stores selling snacks and their prices are much cheaper than town. There were also a lot of nice restaurants around the area.

Really enjoyed this area. Would stay here again. Very convenient for Railway Stations covering all lines. Plenty of places to eat. Could access all that we wanted to around Tokyo from here. Also direct quick rail line from the airport .Book tickets from overseas and you get a DISCOUNT.

This is the place to shop for cheap souvenirs and snacks. You can pretty much get anything here for much cheaper than the departmental stores in Tokyo.

Went to the park and then wandered through the old fish market that was actually much more than that! You could buy almost anything!

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.
