I guess it will be more spectacular in spring time with all blooming cherry trees, but it was also interesting - like I find all parks interesting. Also has a tample of love.

A must to visit in Tokyo. Easy to get to by train. Enjoy strolling through the peaceful gardens and temples. Good street food also and a nice statue up a few steps where the locals give you a sweet and free green tea. Would look completely different each season. Well worth a visit.

The park is located close to the Ueno JR station and is spread across a large area with nice landscaping, well laid out walking paths, dense green vegetation. It houses a few shrines, the statue of Saigo Takamori , and of course the famous Ueno Zoo. A great place to spend the day out.

Large park with several shrines, museums, a zoo, pond, and fields of lotus. I especially liked the Inari shrine and the Buddha's head (from a ststue destroyed in a quate quake nearly a century ago). Benches to sit and look at waterfowl.

Positively gorgeous park, and so vast. You can walk around aimlessly for hours, looking at everything from old shrines to koi fish and newer attractions. You can even take a paddle-boat ride!

It is a reasonable sized park with many temples, the Ueno zoo and museums. If you are visiting the zoo or the museums arrive early as they start to ask people to leave 15min before closing time. It has concrete walkways and not many places to sit on the grass but it has a really nice atmosphere and a lot... More

The park is quite pretty (would be best at Sakura of course)and houses many museums. We came across an azalea bonsai exhibit/competition. Oh my word. One of our most favorite parts of our trip!

The best time to be here is end March early May I guess. That is the cherry blossom bloom period here. I guess we missed it by an entire month. In spite of that, this park is gorgeous. It has everything for a family outing. There is a zoo inside. If you are in mood for some peddle boating, this... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
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 sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
