First of all: It's completely safe to come to Tokyo. Yes there were a couple of afterquakes (most of which barely noticable), but they've stopped completely now. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT cancel your trip because of the earthquakes. The hostels are in a...More

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.
