I couldn't figure out where I was when I came out of the subway--and luckily I saw this on the corner. Well equipped to answer questions and give guidance in many languages. Can tell you how to get around all of Asakusa Ward.

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
