Ueno is a key transport hub in the heart of old Tokyo. 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. It is also well-known for the night market of Ameya Yokocho which runs between Ueno Station and Okachimachi Station (one-stop south on the Yamamote Line).

Ueno Park at the surrounding area

One could easily spend an entire day in the museums and art galleries of Ueno Park alone. If you’re a museum lover or an art fanatic, you might want to consider getting a Grutto Pass which entitles holders to discounts for many of the museums and art galleries in the capital.
