Taito used to be a working class district of Tokyo, where many migrants from northern Japan used to live. Things have changed lately: the area nearby the Ueno train station has seen some redevelopment with many department stores attracting a new and younger clientele. While it does not have the refinement of the Chuo or Chiyoda districts, Taito has its special charm.
 
Taito ward. Population as of 2000: 156 thousand. Area: 10.0 square kilometers.
