This is where one can find one of the busiest train stations - where you can catch the train to Narita Airport. A good central location in Tokyo

Lovely area to stay. Nice park, plenty of resteraunts, nice shops, and arcades. Quieter than surrounding areas which can be a nice break. Don't hesitate to stay here.

Compared to Shinjuku or Ikebukuro or Ginza, Ueno is the quieter side of Tokyo. And cheaper hotel rates...

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

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.
