A joy to see close up two pandas eating their breakfast. We arrived early at 9am and were first in so no queues. A very reasonable entrance fee of 600 yen per person. A very well kept zoo.

This is a large park with lots of cherry trees and other great sights. If you like to hang out and enjoy a quiet time, this is a great park. You will have to walk quiet a bit, so take your time when visiting. Just next to Ueno Park theres a huge street market, which is a must too when... More

This is a huge green space within the center of Tokyo. The foliage is so lush and the pathways are well placed. There are amazing 180 degree views of the city skyline from the lake. Shinto shrines and torii gate-lined paths are a delight to explore. The park is also home to a zoo and several of Tokyo's most famous/important... More

On a hot day this is a lovely place to relax and wander amongst trees. Yes, many think the same thing so it is busy but there is enough space for all of us! There are a couple of cafes (including Starbucks) plus museums, temples, the zoo and fountains.

It is one of Tokyo's largest parks and has absolutely everything from great museums to wide open spaces.

This park is pretty and big! You can definitely spend a whole day just there. Within it, you find museums, the zoo, small lake with paddle boats, a Starbucks, and lots of shady places to rest. Toward the center, in front of the Starbucks, you can enjoy performances by Peruvian musicians, Acrobatic group, etc. Overall, great place to visit.

This is a lovely park with temples and shrines dotted around and some pretty gardens too. Unfortunately it draws big crowds so isn't really the quiet haven you might crave in the midst of the madness of Tokyo but is definitely worth a visit.

the title is rather self-esplicative. Probably the biggest and most crowded park in the city, it's a good choice if you want to have some peace in the chaotic Tokyo. Great place for Hanami in the right season.

Went there early one morning during Sakura season and it was a beautiful and peaceful walk, especially around the lake. Other than the cherry blossoms, there were other beautiful flowers blooming. The temple in the middle of the lake has a small lane of vendors leading up to it with some unique offerings. Great place to have a picnic, or... More

A great park with many museums and a great zoo. Don't miss the lake with giant lily pads. A nice place to spend a quiet day.
