We took a short stroll on a Saturday morning around the main sakura path and to the lake. There was a musical wooden xylophone performer on one of the hills, and it was really enjoyable. At the lake, there were many food stands and some souvenir stands, and the atmosphere was lively. There were swan boats and regular boats for... More

Beautiful place to see when cherry blossoms are in full glory! Great spot for people viewing too! Alluring mix of natural delights, including a traditional Japanese garden and magnificent blooming branches lingering over ponds and lakes, with glimpses of high rise buildings.

Park, Shrine, and Zoo... pretty much like an all in one here. During Sakura season, it is a good idea to bring along your lunch box for a picnic here. On weekends it can be packed with both Japanese and tourist.

Lucky to be there during their Sakura season. Vancouver also has Cherry Blossom but it was way nicer when they are grouped in a park. Although it was packed with people due to public holidays, it was still a very enjoyable walk. On one side of the park, there were lots of street foods booths that sell lots of interesting... More

The park was a nice place to walk around and escape the city. It was recommended in our top 10 tour book. There are all kinds of good finds and temples and shrines in the park. Not a must do but a nice escape from the city.

I went to this park five times during Hanami during the day and at night. It was the best part of the trip! I enjoyed it more than the food, temples, and shopping.

A lovely place to spend an afternoon. View the sakura (in spring). Hire a peddle boat on the pond. See the polar bear at the zoo. Eat some snacks from the market stalls. While away the hours.

Then i came into Ueno Zoo to see Panda. Zoo has pretty much complete collection of animals. You can ride mono-train also inside the zoo. There are museums around Ueno Park, on... 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.
