    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
