On oiur way to Ueno park, we passed by the Uerno station and a freshly baked bread aroma attracted out attention. We stop by to get a better view. The place is crawling with people and baking is a non-stop affair. We peaked around and decided to try the oven fresh walnut muffins. WOW what a treat... A load of... More

Wonderful and tasty bakery! And it's still quite cheap and affordable! Tip: If you're thinking of buying some bakery and eat at other nearby locations, forget about it. Tokyo Station is a very crowded place, so there won't be any space for you to eat. My suggestion is to buy and eat just outside the store.

We popped into Andersen before catching our train and got some delicious loaves of green tea bread, which was amazing! Few days later we were back. This is a good place for breakfast, coffee and also for take away. As with most everything else in Japan, the service is fantastic and the quality of the pastries and baked goods outstanding....

We had breakfast in Ueno station. High prices to be honest and quality is good (one croissant was not so excellent for its price but the rest was good). Fast and easy if you want western style food.

In our 10 day stay in Japan we came to this bakery 3 times for breakfast! Great baked goods at decent prices for Japan's standard. The almond croissant, and curry croquette were amazing! other baked goods like banana bread, and the hot dog loaded with some toppings were also delicious! Definitely a must try if you're in the area!

This place had the best baked goods Ive ever tried in Tokyo! The curry croquette and almond croissant were to die for! These are just a couple... I could go on. I even packed some for my flight back. Definitely a must try. I would go to starbucks however for some coffee, Japanese size is smaller to the Grande so... More

Andersen is a nice bakery which has a good selection of breads, Japanese or western. Overall, it seems to be a western bakery shop. Recommended items are the banana cake, sausage dog, melon pan! Good mid day tea break!

We were loyal customers for 4 days when we stayed at Ueno. It's in Ueno station so it was very convenient to drop by after a whole-day sight seeing in Tokyo. Breads and doughnuts we bought were good. Just to inform, Hard Rock cafe/shop is right opposite this cafe, for those looking for collectibles.

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.
