Ueno Station Tokyo Japan - Transportation to other parts of Tokyo, Japan, and Tokyo Airports.

上野駅

           Ueno Station used to connect Northern Japan with the rest of the country.  Travelers by Shinkansen coming from or going to the north had go through Ueno Station. The station has served as the gateway to the capital for millions of residents of northern Japan. As they poured into the city searching for employment or escape from rural servitude, Ueno to them was acting a part similar to that of Ellis Island in American history as it welcomed those arriving from Europe.

            Even in modern times, Ueno still retains something of this 'first arrival point' aura, especially for many foreign visitors to Tokyo accessing the capital via Skyliner from Tokyo's Narita International Airport. The station is also the first stop on the Shinkansen bullet train routes heading for northern prefectures. However Shinkansen lines have now been extended to Tokyo station and this way of traveling has therefore become more convenient.  This does not change the fact that Ueno station is still a major travel hub in the Tokyo area. A few minutes walk to the Keisei-Ueno Line provides a connection to Narita Airport via the Keisei Skyliner and Keisei Line.

 

 

             Ueno station was constructed in the late 19th century and opened on July 28th, 1883. During the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 the station was destroyed in the following fires. Four years later the first subway in Tokyo from Ueno Station to Asakusa station was opened. After the Second World War the area in front of the station became a major black market.
