We walked to the park early in the morning as our apartment is only 15 minutes away. The park is surrounded by Museums and a zoo. The park is full of local people taking their children out on the weekend. But everything is clean and...More

The park is big and there’s a lake where you can hire paddle boats. Not as colourful as I expected in autumn and the lotus pond had only dead plants. Visit the shrines and enjoy the atmosphere.

I don't want to be rude but this is probably the worst park ever I've visited. I suppose cherry trees are beautiful in spring but in November there's absolutely nothing to see.

It's pretty empty and uninspired in the autumn, but it's still worth a look around, especially if you're in the area already.

Tokyo has beautiful parks dotted all over and Ueno park is one to visit, especially if staying in or close-by. We easily spent a few hours here and got some great photos.

Trees, live performers, shrines, museums, fountains, people... in a lively but laid back atmostphere, fabulous in autumn... our only regret was that we couldn’t spend longer than 4 hours at Ueno Park. Next time, we’ll have to allocate at least 8 hours to this place.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

I agree with the folks above; three hours isn't enough time to see both, but I guess it depends on how you luck is. We went to the zoo specifically to see the pandas, and waited in line about 50 minutes(this was a Thursday... More
