The carnival like atmosphere attracts Sunday crowds, mostly families with kids who stroll the neat walkways which are punctuated with jugglers, street musicians, magicians, hiphop dancers and other novelty offerings. Fascinating to look at and enjoy considering the park is at the heart of one of the busiest, most crowded cities in the world. Hordes of pigeons can be fed,... More

It was very pleasant to walk through the beautiful park with its tall and shady trees, beautiful maples and flowers. There is a zoo, museum and restaurants and snacks available. A nice oasis in a very busy area.

Large park filled with museums. There are some great street vendors at the bottom corner near the lily pond selling masks, beads, scrolls, jewelry, etc.

We ate inside, sat on a half-wall/bench. It was extremely peaceful. It made me smile. We didn't have the occasion, the time, to explore a little bit, but it was a great lunchtime.

Leave Ueno station by either the Panda or park entrance and within 100m you are there a massive open space right in the centre of the city. There are plenty of museums and galleries and of course the zoo within the park, the park is itself free. At the entrance there is an info kiosk with maps and English speaking... More

You can spend an entire day in Ueno Park. It's just off the train station and has tons of museums, a zoo, a botanical garden, and just lovely plant life all about. It's a peaceful place just to stroll through, if you like that sort of thing. The Tokyo National Museum is at one end of the park, but make... More

Ueno Park is one of the large landmark parks in Tokyo. Location wise it's excellent being right beside the JR Ueno station as well as the Keisei Ueno station, so is easily accessible. The park is large and has multiple museums and attractions dotted about. Even without these it is a nice park to explore in good weather. It's worth... More

Lovey park that could easily rival New York's Central Park. Lots of shrine and temples, museums, and has a lake and the zoo.

You can use your JR Pass to train out to Ueno Park and most things in there are free - payment is required for things like the Science Museum and the Ueno Zoo - which is meant to be the oldest zoo in Japan. There's a beautiful lake which you can pay to row/paddle in as well. We spent a... More
