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

We chose this area to stay during our trip to Japan as it was close the main heart of Toyko. We thought it would be a good base to travel from. It is certainly an excellent area, although it is an older area with a mixture of buildings it is certainly very safe and clean. I would definitely stay in... More

Went to the Ueno Zoo, it was great. But to be honest I'm lost on my way out. Somehow I went to the lake near the exit. But since it's a beautiful place, I won't complain

Good location just a few stops from Tokyo main station and right next to the sky rail if you need to hop on that train to catch a flight at NRT for you next destination. Oh con was the pricing in some stores and the unwillingness of many vendors to negotiate. Loses some of the fun of haggling in an... More

This place is fantastic during the day and magical once the sun goes down. Food, shopping and people abound. Exploring can take you to the Okachimachi station on the Yamanote line but you'll feel like you can keep going.

I looked at several areas to stay for a recent weekend layover in Tokyo. I chose Ueno because it provided easy and relatively inexpensive access to Narita, along with access to the subway and train system. The area is much quieter than the hustle of many of the other districts in the city (Shibuyu, Ginza, Shinjuku, Asakusa). Still there is... More
