About Taito

Taito-ku has an abundance of new modern facilities to enjoy, the area is full of history and traditional Japanese culture going back to the Edo period of the 17th Century. Unlike some of the more over enthusiastically developed areas of the city, where bulldozers have removed all the charming sense of the past, Taito-ku has preserved many neighborhoods with old style characteristics and culture carried on in the Shitamachi spirit.

There are a number of main neighborhoods to explore as well as small off the beaten track places of interest. You will find many places to explore in this area.

Ueno is home to the oldest and first public park established in Tokyo in 1873. Ueno Park is the home to some of Tokyo's most splendid cultural sites. Inside the park you will find a variety of things to explore from, temples, national, art, nature and science museums and Ueno Zoo.

Across from the park is the bustling marketplace of Ameyoko. From discount merchandise sold by energetic street vendors to brand name shops and upper-end department stores it is a shoppers paradise.

Asakusa is a thriving temple town and a long and distinguished history. The landmark of the area is the grand Senso-ji, a temple built in the 7th century with its splendid Kaminarimon or Thunder gate.

Sumida Park stretches along the river and is a popular spot for Cherry blossom viewing in spring and fireworks displays in summer. Many events and festivals are held throughout the year attracting crowds of people to enjoy the celebrations and charming sights Asakusa has to offer.

Taito-ku is a cradle of both Japanese culture and modern facilities that has something to offer for everyone. It is a must see area for any visitor to Tokyo.
