We were to late for the cherry blossoming this time, but I have been here before in the end of march and this place is amazing when the trees are in full blossom. Go, but try to make it end march/beginning of april.

This park is mainly for the locals to get away from the city streets on a weekend, but as a tourist it was a nice stroll and on the sunday when we were there you could see lots of street entertainers. And a starbucks coffee by the pond in the sun was quite OK before taking the metro back into... More

Lovely park. We visited during Sakrua, so it was crazy busy, but absolutely lovely with all cherry trees. There are also a few national museums in on end of the park worth visiting if you like art and history.

This was my first place to visit in Tokyo and it was totally worth it. From the paddle boat ride in the Park, to the shrines and temples. Its a little slice of beauty among the hustle and bustle. Also great for people watching. Make sure to go and look at the incredibly old tree at the top. The tree... More

We were so luck with our timing to visit this amazing city. The cherry blossom was in full bloom on our first day and it was also glorious sunshine. It was very busy but that didn't detract from the beauty of the blossoms and the way the air was filled with petals - like snow. This was a great place... More

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.
