We visited the Ueno area and Park in February so we decided to stop by this pond. It isn’t that great in February but it was still nice to take a break by the water after walking for so long. I wouldn’t make a special...More

This is a lovely little oasis in the center of one of the busiest districts in Tokyo. If you are lucky you will see the local man who comes here almost every day to feed the sparrows, they come and sit on his hand!

We went here while the cherry blossoms were blooming and it was gorgeous. It's a great mix of nature, fun with boats, and nearby temples. There are also toilets nearby which is always a plus. We spent hours here.

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
