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
We spent a half day in Ueno park and then moved to Ueno town. Wandered through the marketplace which has many traditional little gifts, lovely traditional Japanese crafts and lots of eateries. We went to some of the shopping centres and stocked up on Uniqlo!...More
The streets are full of people walking everywhere around here. Stores everywhere, so many places to eat and an easy access by train! Look for the smaller stores, the mom and pop places, those have the best goods!
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.

If you want a taste of Tokyo of years past, Ueno is a great place to visit. The neighbouring area of Yanaka is full of shrines, old houses and interesting shops and galleries. It is an easy walk from Nippori station down the shopping street and past shrines to Ueno. There is Ueno park and most of the museums and galleries of note in Tokyo are here along with the zoo. Note depending on your travel dates, alot of these are closed on Mondays. Ueno and the area around the station is full of little alleyways crowded with restaurants and shops.

I stayed in the same hotel twice -- Hotel New Tohoku -- newtouhoku. jp -- just one thing -- look very carefully at the map as it does have English name on the building, but the lights are displaying the Japanese name. I liked this hotel as being conveniently located and relatively cheap.
