Yet Tokyo offers a huge variety of places to rest your head from traditional Japanese temple lodgings in the mountains to the latest in hotel convenience in mid-city capsule hotels. For a real Japanese feel, try out a ryokan with low level furniture and plenty of Zen. Recommended accommodation include the Hotel Graphy Nezu, Hotel MyStays Ueno Inaricho and Ueno Hotel.

Sightseeing near Ueno

Today Ueno Park is famous for the many museums found on its grounds, especially the Tokyo National Museum, the National Museum for Western Art, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and the National Science Museum. It is also home to Ueno Zoo, Japan's first zoological garden.

Transportation near Ueno

Tokyo’s public transport network hinges on its subway lines, with trains running every two minutes to all destinations and districts. Signage both in the stations and on the trains is in English as well as Japanese, as are the route maps on the platforms, making it easy for most foreign visitors to get around. Tickets are had from machines and are priced by distance, and subway travel is one of Tokyo’s bargains. The JR line is the city’s suburban commuter rail network, and travels to and from the farthest districts as well as providing a ‘ring road’ by rail around the central districts. Buses run all over the city, but signage is in Japanese and the drivers rarely speak English. Taxi services in Tokyo are reliable, and the cabs are sparkling clean, although the metered charges are expensive, especially during rush hours.
