We spent around an hour and a half in this department store between buying a couple of gifts together and my wife getting a 30 minutes massage while I continued to shop. There are 7 floors, the first is for food, then you'll find clothing and cosmetics and the last is for restaurants and toys. There are several famous brands... More

Shopping center like many in Tokyo. But in this one, there is a roof place with beautiful view for Tokyo Skytree tower that is the second highest building in the world.

Look around the small shops on the first floor offering all kinds of sweets and cakes. You can buy most of them boxed up as a souvenir. The train to Nikko leaves from the same building. Instead of waiting at the station you can do some window shopping in this small department store.

Not a deli, not a cafe and wa-ay more than a grocery store, the basement holds delectable meals and visual delights. From fresh fruits and vegetables to prepared food ready-to-eat in your room or on the go, shopping for food is entertaining!

After shopping around Asakusa Ekimise outside Sensoji temple, stroll the streets around it, and find interesting stuff like restaurants and shops. Ultimately, Asakusa offers all kinds of souvenirs that you wouldn't want to miss to bring home like keychains, bags, caps, tshirts, and even food! I find Japan products of all kinds in good quality.

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.
