All reviews toy shop narita airport ameyoko market bustling place great shopping yamanote line local food seafood train tracks shopping district department store nice area the main street kebab beautiful park street food tokyo national museum
We loved this neighbourhood. If we lived in Tokyo, this is where we would be. Beautiful parks, shops, playgrounds, restaurants. Much less overwhelming than Shinjuku or Shibuya. A great place to wander without any real destinations.
I loved Ueno! From the station, head to the park as there are often buskers on the path which makes the atmosphere amazing. There are many shrines and temples here too so exploring the intricacies of those is a great way to start an afternoon....More
It's not quiet per se, but it felt more laid back when compared to other areas, like Shinjuku and Shibuya. The park is great, lots of shopping and museums in the area and it's close to both Asakusa and Akihabara, which are very nice places...More
I love the area. It is truly "shitamachi" = downtown area. It has a mixture of the old Edo and the new Tokyo. Lots of shopping to do and the zoo and temples and zillions of delicious eating places. You just can't go wrong visiting...More

We stayed in Shinjuku and loved it. Actually we loved each district in Tokyo. Ueno was no different. We saw many museums, street shopped, shopped at high end places but the parks weren’t so great because we did visit in February. Our favorite part of...More
One train ride from Narita International Airport, take the Keisei Line and it's half the price cheaper than the skyliner. The Ameyoko shopping street is a shopping haven... cheapest price and limitless options. Also, lot's of restos you can jump on if you're thinking of...More
We stayed in ueno for a week as it was our base. The circular line made it accessible to all other parts of Tokyo, as well as the skyliner from Narita airport.
Ueno is clean and safe and less busy than Shinjuku or Shinbaya It...More
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.
