Ueno ( Japanese上 野) is a district in Tokyo's Taitō-ku district , known for the important Ueno train station and Ueno Park . The park is located on the site of the Kan'ei-ji temple that burned down during the fighting against the shogunate . What has been preserved is a pagoda and the Tōshō-gū shrine dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu .

Beneath the stilts of the East Japan Railway Company (JR East) in front of Ueno Station is Ameyoko , a lively and diverse street market that was an important black market in the post-war period.

With its many bars and restaurants, museums ( National Museum Tokyo , National Museum of Western Art ) and the Ueno Zoo , Ueno is one of the sub-centers of Tokyo.
