A big district to explore, maybe the whole day. There's a big park, a zoo, malls, street shops and restaurants all rolled into one. Much, much lower key compared to other neighborhood like Ginza.

Chaotic, fun, shops, temples, and cherry blossoms. Fascinating shops and restaurants in the train station. Make sure you leave the calmness of the train station and explore the neiborhood. Ueno Park is great, cherry blossoms, temples and the zoo. The alleys next to the train...More

The stall markets is a must visit for travelers to Tokyo, especially if you're in the market for Japanese snacks and seafood. Beside the many staff shops, they have some very good down to earth eateries. Shopping and touring Ueno gives you a real sense...More

Charming busy streets filled with inexpensive shops for gifts and clothing as well as a variety of eateries from street food to restaurants. The night I went, it was not filled with gaijin. It seems to be popular with locals.

If you are interested in walking through a large park, visiting museums and art galleries, Ameyoko market, then Euno is the area to stay. The Ginza line took me to most places I wanted to visit. Euno is also the start/finish of the Skyliner train...More

One of those parts of Tokyo that when you finally get here you wonder why you had not been here before. Lots of restaurants, lively shopping streets, the station, the park and the museums ( closed Mondays).

What an amazing place. Friday’s nights filled with drunken business men, Saturday’s filled with families, Monday filled with commuters. Avoid the markets on the weekend, incredibly packed. Go during the week. You’ll miss too much in the crush otherwise.

Old school marketplace, you can find pretty much anything there, from food to clothes. Ueno park is also cool, spend some time around the fountaines!

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
