We walked around Ueno Park whilst waiting for a dinner reservation at the Hard Rock which is close story Ueno station. Easy to see the park from the station. It's a lot bigger than I thought and walking around was a lot of fun. Great things to see and do. There were some food stalls when we were there near... More

Visited the park end of March during the cherry blossom season. The whole park take in a carnival mood, with many food stalls selling local snacks, boat rides at the lake etc. Everywhere is crowded with locals and tourists busy admiring and taking photos of the cherry blossoms. Families and friends occupy every available space having picnics or just enjoying... More

Possibly the best time to go is April - when the wave of cherry blossoms sweeps the country. Ueno park will be covered in millions of them. This will be complemented by hundreds of lanterns in the tree making dusk the perfect time to visit. Many locals agree and throughout Ueno park you will see groups of people putting tarps... More

A lot to see here with beautiful wildlife and butterflies, and little temples dotted around the place. A wonderful place to walk through during the day and I imagine it reflects the different seasons wonderfully.

You can get lost in time, walking around Ueno park. Such beauty is seen here, well worth spending the day here, close to Ueno station.

Scenic walk on a very hot day! Free entrance and next to the Ueno station. Highlight for us were the paddle boats in the West Garden! Hadn't done one of those in years! Good trip up here if combined with the Ameyoko Shopping Street and Zoo.

Nice park with a small lake covered by lotus flowers. Nice to rest and to escape from the city. There is a tomb dedicated to an ancient fifth that has been taken on the ueno park hill

Nice place to chill and picnic but not during summer as it may be too hot and humid for some people. It's probably the best place for Hanami during Sakura season according to Japanese

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.
