Stunningly beautiful with lines of cherry blossoms

The park is absolutely beautiful when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. I'm sure even when they are not fully in bloom it still must be stunning. There are a couple of temples to... read more

The park is absolutely beautiful when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. I'm sure even when they are not fully in bloom it still must be stunning. There are a couple of temples to visit when walking around which was an extra bonus to my husband and I. Our favorite part was just the people watching. The crowd ranged from... More

You should visit during the cherry season. You can have full hanami experience--lots of blossoms, people, and beers! Kanei-ji (Kanei Temple) charges you to enter, but it is very pretty and well maintained, so I highly recommended to take a look. It's worth for below $10. It is very similar with the one in Nikko (very famous Toshyo-gu), so it... More

A quick visit to the park with my family. My son found the Ueno play park and that was that soon after we entered the area but he was also riding on his scooter and running happily along these long alleyways. There are places to get food and drink - some pizza place next to the samurai statue, Starbucks next... More

Take a walk in ueno Park give me warm feeling. I really like the atmosphere and the environment there. The place is full with the trees. And sometimes you can find the performance of street performers here. There is also lake which you can ride a boat with your friends or loved ones.

Ueno park was by far the best attraction we went to during our trip to Japan. The park is beautifully maintained and there were many performers who were all very talented. We enjoyed the acrobatics as well as the artists who came to the park, making our trip so memorable. The park is located close to the train stations as... More

The Ueno Park contains a very well organized Zoo. Right near the entrance you will find the attraction that everyone heads for. The Pandas. Their exhibit is very well set up and you will get a good view of these playful animals as they play and eat. The organization of the Zoo is well planned for you to walk and... More

Nestling within the busy city, this park is a lovely break from routine. One can take a long walk between the trees to visit some ancient shrines tucked away in corners, or watch performers entertain onlookers in little clearings. Plenty of flowering plants, some cafes and easy access to the metro make this a beautiful park to visit.

A very busy park on a Sunday morning, but nevertheless a pleasnt diversion from the overall mania of Tokyo streets. Plenty of activities going on to just people watch or alternatively museums and galleries available for a cultural top up.

It is nice if you walk around Ueno Park in the morning or afternoon, just to enjoy the view. Or you can go to the Zoo inside the Park. And they also have Starbucks. :)

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood 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.
