Place is plenty with shops. But prices varies and some might not be as cheap as expected. Do expect a crowd in weekend. Shops are open about 10 am local time. Nice walk to see around for local produce. Place is near the exit of the skyliner from narita airport.

Not so glitzy and crowded compared to other tourist areas such as Shibuya, Shinjuku or Ginza, Ueno provides a more relaxed environment to relax (go to Ueno Park), shop and get entertained. The many museums and art galleries are not to be missed by cultural enthusiasts.

Very cool street with streetwear and pharmacy/ beauty stores. They close early though - some shops close at 19:00. But other than that, lots to chose and browse from.

My favourite part about f the city for sure. Small cultural streets just full of things to see. The vibe is really nice and safe feeling. So much to see and do, just go and figure it out yourself like we did

A lot of shops, a lot of Pachinku, a lot of good and a lot of traditional clothing. What to not like about this place? It's even really close to Itabashi and Ikebukuro!!!

The small streets are nice to see and also the area has some interesting restaurants. It is easy to get there by JR line. Overall a nice 4 hours trip. In additional you can stop at the Ueno park.

Ueno is an amazing suburbs tale the time to look around the station and then the many side street offering great food and drinks combined with warm hospitality. Make sure you allow enough time to check out the markets as they are a must.

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.
