Ueno park is a must and the Ueno station has a lot of charm too. The Ueno station mall has lots of interesting stores, e.g. The Garden sells great bento boxes or lovely dishes (and has a microwave), and there's a few shops that sell...More

We stayed in Ueno Area through AirBnB as we find most hotels too small to accommodate for people (18sqm). Getting two rooms is not an option. The area is surrounded with good restaurants. There are 7-11 and family marts almost anywhere which can help with...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

Is a guide recommended for this area? I'm mostly interested in the park, not the shopping.

The train station here is a big one. There is a Hard Rock Cafe here in Ueno as well. Sometimes you can see people singing or doing some type of art of the street. Is a nice area

I believe that every hotel has a common or lounge area but not so big room only a place size 4-6sq.m. But I don't know the hotel name.
