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

This is much more interesting for grown ups. Had a great afternoon here, although I could do without the complaining and clearly unhappy teenager. Best explored by couples, friends or even alone. Finally an area with places that had open restaurants. A must see. When exiting the station from the Metro, just continue straight on across the street and there... More

I was so charmed by this place. Ueno was truly beautiful. Housing most of the museums including the Tokyo National Museum, National Museum of the Western Art, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, attractions such as the Ueno Park, Ueno Zoo and surprising and interesting finds such as the flame of Hiroshima and Nagasaki - which has been burning since it's discovery...

Stayed in Ueno - trains and subway easy - just look at the station you want to go to work out the price (circle on the map) through all your change in - the machine sorts it spits out the ticket A trick is to note all stations have the next station on the wall Ueno - go to the... More

A great place with lots of different attractions suitable for all. Just across from the station is Ueno park which has large grounds and is perfect to view the cheery blossoms at the right time of the year. It also has a few nice shrines to visit and a lake where you can hire a pedalo if the weather is... More

The park is quite large, and there are many attractions in it, blossoming trees, museums, lake, shrine, etc. It is a great sightseeing opportunity at the Sakura season. But it becomes very crowded.

Most of the places we went had ample signage but there seems to be less here. If it wasn't for google maps and some not so free wifi we would have had a rough time finding our way around. We kept getting lost because there just wasn't any signs indicating which route to take to the sights

We stayed at the Sutton Place Hotel Ueno which is very convenient from the Ueno station. There is a lot of eateries and shopping streets around the station. You can get cheap but good food including ticket machine restaurants. We stayed at Shinjuku before but found Ueno a better choice and we'll come back next time.

I love Ueno area. I recommend this as your base area when visiting Tokyo. Safe and clean. A lot of dining, shopping and sightseeing options that are near each other. Ueno station in itself is great for everything! I will still stay in Ueno on my next trip to Tokyo.
