Ueno Area Guide

Ueno (上野) is a key transport hub in the northeast of Tokyo in the heart of Tokyo’s shitamachi. It is popular with both tourists and Japanese alike for Ueno Park, which is home to several of the capital’s most important museums and art galleries, as well as Ueno Zoo, the most famous in Japan. It is also well-known for the night market and the streets of Ameya Yokocho which run between Ueno Station and Okachimachi Station (one-stop south on the Yamamote Line).
