It’s a national heritage listed small temple, located in Ueno Park. As it’s on a higher ground, Shinobazu Pond can be seen below the park. There were two willow cherry trees near the temple, but they had already finished blooming by the time we visited.

It has "Moon Pine Tree", which appears in Hiroshige's Ukiyoe. However, this is "new" moon pine tree. The one Hiroshige drawed has gone. If the time is right, you can see beautiful weeping cherry trees in front of this temple.

From the top of the hill, you can look down on this Shrine and it really pops. The view from behind with the reflection on the pond is also beautiful

A smaller version of the famous Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto, this structure is well worth a stop when in Ueno Park. It is one of the few buildings in the huge Kaneiji Temple complex (now Ueno Park) to have survived the civil war leading to...More

The Dragon fountain at the main entrance is a very nice detail. Temple is not spectacular but certainly worth visiting if you are at Ueno park

The temple is one of the attractions of Ueno Park. It id located on the small hill, so the view is beautiful especially by shaped wheel bonzai tree.

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
