asakusa

Asakusa is one of the most famous sightseeing spots in Tokyo, where you can taste old culture of Tokyo.  It is a good place for souvenir shopping too.

Asakusa is on the north-east fringe of central Tokyo, at the eastern end of the Ginza subway line, approximately one mile east of the major Ueno railway/subway interchange. It is central to the area colloquially referred to as Shitamachi, which literally means “low city,” referring to the low elevation of this old part of Tokyo, on the banks of the Sumika river. As the name suggests, the area has a more traditionally Japanese atmosphere than some other neighborhoods in Tokyo do.

Asakusa is Tokyo’s oldest Geisha district, and still has 45 actively working geisha, including SAYUKI, Japan’s first Western geisha.

Ueno National Museum and Park

Hanami

Ueno ParkUeno3

Ueno Park is famous for its many museums, especially art museums. The park is also well known as a cherry-blossom viewing spot. Ueno is part of the historical Shitamachi (literally “low city”) district of Japan, a working class area rather than where the aristocrats and rich merchants lived. Today the immediate area, due to its close proximity to a major transportation hub, retains high land value but just a short walk away to the east or north reveals some of the less glitzy architecture of Tokyo.(Takes 9 minutes by train from Asakusabashi station)
