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.
Senso-Ji temple was stunning and vibrant, it was bright and stood our among the crowd, it really showed the culture of Japan! It was extremely busy, so if you don't like crowds then steer away. But otherwise then please visit and soak in the culture as you can see the vast people wearing beautiful kimonos.
Ueno has a treasure trove of attractions, from the zoo (bursting with excitement because of the baby pandas- so expect lines), to the fabulous National Museum, Metropolitan and Royal Museums, the Western Art museum, Science and Natural History.... take your pick. The park and its pond are lovely as well. I went, with a guide, on National Foundation Day, and...
There were some collections of furniture, kimonos etc., however, there was slightly no story behind. Since I prefer museums that are not overcrowded with exhibits the National Museum had just the right amount. The Museum as it is, was nothing special but the inner garden, right next to the museum was amazing.
The inner garden can be entered...
If you are like me, you are not in Tokyo to see Western art, but check the special exhibits at this museum. It has a world class collection and often has exhibitions that compare and contrast Western and Japanese traditions.
"Tasty, good service, a typical japanese restaurant"
reviewed 2 days ago by Pato M
I came here because I was looking for an okonomiyaki restaurant in Asakusa. I found good opinions here in Tripadvisor (also there are a few bad opinions), so we decided to go there.
The first thing that I have to say is that it can be a little bit difficult to found it, we used google map and there are...
Normally Japanese noodles are not allow customer the change the taste but this you can choose spicy, oily, noodle's hard, green onions etc and it's taste good for me but you have to prepare for waiting if you go late. The price is reasonable and the staffs are good in services.
I first walked by Kikko during my previous trip to Tokyo and was intrigued by the juxtaposition of the old house and the bustling street. Somehow, I couldn't forget about it and reserved a table for my family during recent stay in Asakusa. It was everything I expected and more - we had the bento lunch sets and thoroughly enjoyed...

Thank you management for your warm welcome and service.
The location was amazing as it was close by to a lot of the attractions in Asakusa such as the Senso-ji Temple and the local markets with lots of historical shops.
The staff was very friendly and helpful especially Masami. She was able to help me translate with the bus station staff over the phone due to communication issues on...

I’ve spent two nights in this hotel which has a great position for visiting this wonderful part of Tokyo. I’ve found courtesy by personnel at acceptance, clean and comfortable room, with a quality/price ratio very high.
The hotel was great - very clean room, fantastic amenities and convenient location. The hotel is very close to a few stations and it is only a short train ride away from Tokyo Station. The staff were very efficient and friendly.
