The area
Neighbourhood: 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 sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.

A deserted shopping street, a symbol of present Japan
Oct 2016 • Solo
This street is ...... for homeless people, because arkaded.

You might feel unpleasant, bitter, and upset.
Anyway, there's little danger.
If you've got time to kill with seriousness, could you please observe the street, take strange experience, & think something ?

Besides, cheap lodgings near here are approx JPY2500, very cheap.
