Nice park

Came for the cherry blossom viewing... very crowded, but we were able to spread our blanket and have a picnic, which was very enjoyable. Lots of other things to see here too,

We came here as a peaceful starter before enjoying Ueno streets and Shopping. Park is just at the exit of Metro, open early and is free entrance. You can enjoy zoo (charge), temples, lake, statues, peaceful walk. It worth half a day and also you have to Enjoy the National Museum. A must.

Street market, temples, amazing train station and fabulous park with museums and zoo. What would you wish more for a great day in Tokyo? Don't hesitate and add Ueno on your "must do in Tokyo" list because there are so many things to do in the same place but you need good shoes and a lot of energy. Don't miss... More

This park is very large and has some good attractions within it's limits, even if you have nothing to do there, just sitting on the bench doing nothing is good enough to experience the effects of nature

We were there during Golden Week so it was pretty busy but still enjoyable. A nice place to wander around. Sat and watched kids playing baseball and a dance performance. Great morning

Ueno Park houses some beautiful and old temples. The park itself is not very big. The Zoo is located here.

Beautiful park centrally located. Had a lovely walk round on a spring day and saw the 1KM row of cherry blossom. Plenty to do here too with the museums and the boating lake.

We visited this pleasant park the day after our arrival in Tokyo just after the cherry blossom season had peaked. The other flowering trees, including some later-blooming cherry trees, the variety of the vegetation, the lake lined with other flowering cherry trees made for a pleasant and relaxing walk. At night, the lit pavilion is simply gorgeous when viewed from... More

I thought this would be similar to the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden but it is quite different. Ueno park is a lot busier with a lot of buildings and activities to be done inside. If you want a park to stroll around peacefully, go to Gyoen Park instead. If you want to do people watching, eating stall food, etc., then... 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.
