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.
Normally, people will just walk towards the Nakamise Shopping Street and miss the information center across the street. However, it's a good place to go when you are tired / hot. There is a cafe inside and the observation deck can have a very nice view of the whole area. Good for photographer.
This was a very interesting area for us to browse through. Everything in this part of town has to do with kitchenware and is frequented by restaurateurs. chefs and generally anyone interested in cooking and picking up unique pots/pans, knives, dishes. You can always find something unique to buy. I really enjoy the shops that specialize in plastic food that...
"The temple which used to own the whole Ueno Park"
reviewed 17 March 2020 by Global715255
Founded in 1625, this temple used to cover the whole Ueno Park.
Being off the beaten path, you can enjoy calmness, surrounded with beautiful trees.
If you take off your shoes, you can go up to the main hall and pray without adkission fee. I also like the billboards showing the history of this place.
You would see many visitors in November when Bamboo Rake Market is held here.
Decorated Bamboo Rake is sold for inviting fortune and business chance. It is not so silent facing busy wide street. There are several memorial plates commemorating famous novelist Ichiyo Higuchi.
The red gates captured my eye in what is a seemingly quiet street. This shrine is a place of peace and quiet and you’re expected to abide by these unwritten rules.
While I was there I watched people queue, some collecting plastic bags to put their shoes in. People stopped and paid their respects to statues of cats and foxes:...
Came here three times with my partner on our business trip - the food is sublime, the decor beautiful, the staff super friendly. Brilliant artisan coffee, they have their own bakery upstairs(!) and plenty of veggie options. Highly recommend this spot!
I have heard many good reviews from my friends about this restaurant and wanted to try this place out when i visited my home country, i was not dissapointed.
We were given ninja service and i was really happy with everything.
Love their sukiyaki set meals here and you can get good value for lunch as well. I usually drop by here for a sit down meal after a visit at Senso-ji because it's close by
Tip - there is another branch at Ningyocho Imahan but depends on where you are
Lovely, clean hotel nestled in a quiet section of Asakusa. Short walk to Kaminarimon and subway. I highly recommend the superior room with bathtub, as bathrooms this large are hard to come by in Japan. The staff was incredibly nice and professional. They will also store your luggage for free if you are traveling around. There are coin operated washing...
Really easy to get to, close to Ueno station. Lovely service. The room was awesome. Spacious in Japanese terms.
Beds were super comfortable and nice sitting area. Tidy spacious bathroom, with all amenities including hair dryer. Kitchen had a good size fridge and freezer, microwave and well stocked kitchen utensils....lots of appliances available for a loan if you wanted to...
Nice hotels are a dime a dozen, but every now and then you come across a little gem with so much charm and character that it becomes one of those places you know you'll come back to. Edo Sakura is one of those places. The traditional-style rooms were comfortable and well-appointed, with all the modern amenities you could need while...
We were arivve @23.00, but access to get hotel is very easy from Keisei Ueno Station, just by walk !
Hotel Location is very tranquil but near from train or MRT station, store which sale food or the think for life needs is easy. The room clean and big enough for 4 adult plus a child. There are a separated...
This hotel was awesome. Everything was great and my wife and I are still talking about it months later.
One of the things we always think of is the French toast. It was light and airy and just the best. A question for the hotel. What kind of bread was used for the French toast? I have been trying to...
