Something for everyone

Located in the district of Taito, in the northeast of Tokyo, Okachimachi station is located between the two famous stations of Ueno and Akihabara.

Okachimachi Station sits in the center of a bustling shopping district that stretches south from Ueno Station.

It was inaugurated on November 1, 1925, and is now served by two lines, managed by JR East:

  • The Yamanote line that loops through Tokyo,
  • The Keihin Tohoku line which connects the cities of Saitama, Kawaguchi, Tokyo, Kawasaki, and Yokohama.

Okachimachi Station is wedged between the big Ueno stations to the north and Akihabara to the south.

Entering the park from the south, you will come face to face with the Shitamachi Museum.

The museum presents the history of the region and the daily life of its inhabitants during the Edo period (1603-1868).

The first floor highlights the living spaces of the time, such as shops and houses, with identical reconstructions.

The second floor exhibits objects that show how people lived in the area. There is even an area where visitors can view old toys.
