Ueno is a large area which offers many things ... most noticeably its very popular park. Easy to get to it has excellent transport links via the metro & overland trains. There are also many museums and temples to visit, plus a lovely picturesque cemetery. South of Ueno station is a busy market area - many of the stalls actually... More

Ueno is a very convenient place to stay in Tokyo. It is well connected (by Keisei Skyliner) to Narita airport and also very handy to the Tokyo Metro and to JR's Ueno Station (which has fast rail connections to all of Japan) The JR "Yamanote" loop line links all the suburban rail networks together. Ueno has dozens of cafes, restaurants... More

The back streets across from Ueno Station and behind the large avenues provide some exciting shopping and dining experiences, with a certain Old Tokyo feel. The area is directly linked by a large footbridge to the beautiful Ueno Park and its several big museums.

Even the photography group I met with, chose Ueno for the shoot. The markets are aflare with culture and enthusiasm. The contrast of how safe... More

A lot of stuffs there. Great shopping district. But I believe I can get a better price if I search wide and hard. Don't be deceive in believing that's the ultimate price cause I once found shoes that I got cheaper in Shibuya (1000 yen) and the same one in Ueno for 2000 yen!

Ameya-Yokochō AKA Ameyoko is a great little area in the Ueno district located very close to Ueno station and the entrance to Ueno park. The place is host to Yodabashi and a ton of small vendors/hawkers selling a wide variety of goods. It is a terrific place to buy some inexpensive souveniers and deliicous food. It has a very cramped... More

The number of shops selling clothings and footwear is simply too many! Decide beforehand on what you want, otherwise you'll get confused.
