Its a good area of Tokyo

The place has a buzz about it on a Friday night and there are plenty of places to eat and shop. There are also a few museums nearby and Ueno park is nice for a stroll.

This is a very nice area with loads of choices of food. Different prices of restaurants for your options. But I suggest to try the medium to low price restaurants which have people to queue outside the restaurants, they always gives you surprise of their food quality and service. Stations around Ueno with lot of historical buildings and local culture... More

Instead of crossing the road into the shopping center, turn left and immerse yourself in the markets the criss cross the area beneath the station and lead into Ueno park. There is nothing cheap here like the rest of Tokyo but the sounds and smells make it a must...

We loved this area for cheap shopping and a variety of foods from kebabs to Japanese. There are lots of shoe and clothing shops- some overpriced, but you can always find something in the 100 yen shop!

This is an easy market to find and has a very wide range of goods on offer but it is more a shopping centre that a true market which is good if wanting to try on clothes etc. Be careful of pick pockets when you are in the central area of this market where there are some stalls and of... More

This was my third times visiting Tokyo, Ueno is always the last destination before heading to Narita Airport. My flight was in the evening, so after checking out from hotel I dropped my baggage at the locker in Ueno. There are many lockers available in Ueno station, different sizes with different costs. Then I went for a walk at the... 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.
