Taitō is a northeastern district of Tokyo. Talk to a Tokyoite about "downtown", and he will think of the Taito district: the train station of Ueno, where migrants from the deep north first arrived in their search for a better life, and the temples of Asakusa, once a boomtown full of prostitutes and gangsters but now long since past its prime.
