There are lots of things here to see to eat and to buy here. There is a great Gyudon shop opposite to the Ueno station.

love Ueno, second time we've stayed there - close to the old cobble stoned streets, lined with stalls and shops. Not real cheap but fun to explore. Food places everywhere, for all budgets. Ueno Park beautiful to wander around.

There are certainly things to do here, such as the museum, park, and zoo, but not in comparison to other places in Tokyo!

Came to Ueno for the park but on the way back to the train we went to the main street shops and discovered the most amazing maze of shops and market stalls. Everything you coild want and plenty you probably dont want is here. Plus a huge variety of eateries too. Great fun.

Went here to see more of the traditional side of Tokyo and it was pretty and fun on the main market street but aside from that and the cemetery, there's not that much more there. It feels just like the living suburbs of most main cities. Would be good if you feel you've explored everywhere busy in Tokyo and want... More

Ueno park is good. The shops in the area are nice and the markets are also good too. Well worth a good look around. Would go back.

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.
