Not only Exchange, ask us about Ueno area!
Hello! This is Ueno･Ameyoko Office. Ueno is the place which is surrounded by nature that a zoo, a museum, and an university is in a huge park. On the other hand, it is also an active place that there are small shops which still remind us the atmosphere of traditional Tokyo. Ueno is close from the traditional shopping and entertainment district, “Asakusa,” or the home of Japanese subculture, “Akihabara.”
