I found a small shop with kimono silk fabric remnants, a different sort of 'souvenir', several different ones were purchased. Fascinating to walk about and see what is available.

The gardens seem to act as a waiting area for people to visit the shrine or the temple. Also it acts as a doorway to the shopping precinct. It is therefore not a pretty garden to visit but more as route to the other venues.

Denpoin-dori is a small street near the Senso-ji temple. When you walk towards the temple through Nakamise street, turn left into Denpoin-dori. There are some small shops here selling souvenirs and snacks. Walk through the street and turn right into another street that is full of bars.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
