I stumbled upon this during the day, took some photos and left. The next day I again found it by accident but at night and almost didn't recognise it, beautiful! Such a difference, right next to the pond, great photo op and not too busy!...More
A small but very beautiful temple. You can't miss this temple, with the lotus flowers growing in the Ueno Park, Shinobazu Pond in the foreground, and the temple in the foreground makes for a stunning picture. Walk across to the temple amd explore its beauty.
Depending on the time of day and, the activities on the local area, this temple can become very busy. It is however, a very beautiful temple with adjoining shrines.
Out into a large lake, this impressive building is a stunningly beautiful focal point.
This is a very nice structure in Ueno Park. It is a smaller replica of many of the other temples we had already visited in the area with a lot less tourists. If I was a Buddhist, I’d stay away from the larger temples and...More
A small temple, it was bright and simple, but lovely to look around. It adds to the culture and special atmosphere to the park. Quite a few people around, but not too crowded, probably due to the festivals that were on at the time, drawing...More

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.
