Totally loved the Ueno area. A hive of activity, locals and tourists in their droves and so much to see and do. We wandered through parks, explored temples, had the benefit of a food festival, not to mention a Kimono Exhibition. Great to see the...More

Wander around the streets of Ueno and soak up the variety of retail offerings. Ueno's sole department store Matsuzakaya is worth a visit. The Basement food court is a classic and even offers short term refrigerated locker hire.

This town has everything for tourists,direct train to Narita airport,shopping spots,accessibility to other places,cozy park,museums,supermarket,tons of IZAKAYA and bar,and comparatively cheap priced accommodations. Especially if you purchase Keisei Skyliner&Subway Ticket,Ueno would be the first...More

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

I believe that every hotel has a common or lounge area but not so big room only a place size 4-6sq.m. But I don't know the hotel name.
