It's a must visit place whenever we visit Tokyo. There were a lot of stores selling dried scallops and seaweed. The price of these product at ueno is cheaper. Also there were a lot of stores selling snacks and their prices are much cheaper than town. There were also a lot of nice restaurants around the area.

Really enjoyed this area. Would stay here again. Very convenient for Railway Stations covering all lines. Plenty of places to eat. Could access all that we wanted to around Tokyo from here. Also direct quick rail line from the airport .Book tickets from overseas and you get a DISCOUNT.

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

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.
