3 Japanese  traditional style houses built in 1938 were renovated and turned to a joint Restaurant and shop, with a cafe, a beer hall and a clothing shop.

The three buildings surround a courtyard(garden) and gives a great insight into how life looked in the old Ueno area  between 70 to 80 years ago. There are always quite crowded with a steady stream of foreign tourists and locals visiting the shops. The idea, to preserve old buildings and make them commercially viable is fantastic.

Ueno Sakuragi Atari is well worth a visit! You can find much more information, photos and access information on their official website. The renovation aspect of the project has its own Facebook page as well. Very interesting if you are into architecture! There is tasty bakery and the next door you can buy also world seasonings and olive oils as well! Please check it out!
