Very conveniently located at the Ueno station. You can also take the train from this station to Narita Airport and it is also very convenient to go to all other attractions.

Not worth the time and the money. We bought peaches, and not allowed to touch the fruit which is understandable as fruit is perishable. What mattered was the shopkeeper really rude! If you look for drugstores and electronics, you can go to Shinjuku instead.

Ueno has a lot to offer. Great food everywhere as well as flee market type shopping. There is too much to mention. It is definitely worth a look and many train entrances either at Ueno Station or on the main street. We had some amazing...More

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
