This is a good park containing museums, galleries, shrines and temples. You can wander and graze. Very nice in the sun. Currently, you need to watch for mosquitoes because of the dengue fever problem.

If you are like me and trying to see Tokyo in less then a week, You will need someplace to rest, relax and regroup while downtown. Ueno park is ideal. Lot of green space, restaurant, stalls and benches. There is a zoo, several museums and other places of interest. It is also used for cultural activities, a Philippine Festival was... More

Recommended day to go is Saturday or Sunday lot's of people with lots of events from street performers. If your tired from strolling in Akihabara, I suggest this is your next stop to relax and unwind.

Visiting this park in May, unfortunately I could not see the beauty and magic of the cherry blossom tree in the middle of their beauty, if that were the case I would say ... yes, this is the most beautiful place in Tokyo but after this without the beautiful flowers I can admit that Ueno Park is a small park...

Waking up early I figured I would squeeze as much as I could into the day. Waking at six allowed for a big day ahead. I walked through Ueno park, just opposite my hotel. I wandered through the paths lined by sakura (cherry blossom) trees which were all a soft pink blur of beauty. The ponds and vantage points make... More

The park is beautiful, especially during the cherry blossoms. I was lucky enough to visit when the blossoms were in fully bloom. The park lit up with flowering trees everywhere. There is much to do in and around the park; nearby museums, food vendors, and more.

It was lovely to explore Ueno park. It's a beautiful park in the middle of the city and is a lovely break from all the buildings. The buskers and street artists are fantastic too, they're so talented!

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.
