During the Cherry Blossom Festival the park is illuminated with lanterns at night with many parties underneath the trees. It had a real atmosphere and buzz as many happy Japanese people drank and ate. I really wanted to join in. They sold some beers along the walk way and we walked around leisurely. It was really enjoyable and an insight... More

Tokyo have lots of beautiful park, Ueno park is one of it. Especially in cherry blossom season i think everybody should come there and enjoy the atmosphere. Take a walk around and you'll forget that you're in a middle of a metropolitan city

Went to see the Cherry Blossom- plenty of it & plenty of tourists especially old ones, but not much greenery. Not a park in the European sense-too much concrete for my liking. Also has a Zoo & museums but we ran away.

The best spot for the cherry blossom season. I was lucky to be there during swing of the blossom. Again to go there was also idea of others so even morning mid week was completely busy. But still I enjoyed my visit on a nice sunny day to see blossom, people taking pictures and enjoying sakura blossom while having picnic.... More

I went to this park on two different occasions, autumn and spring. As much as I liked the view of autumn red nothing beats the view of Ueno park during hanami. Hundreds of cherry blossom trees in full bloom, especially by the lagoon. It was a breathtaking view! They also illuminate cherry blossoms at night when it's at it peak.... More

I am afraid that this area like all major tourist sites throughout the world is mainly closed on a Monday. Most of the National Museums were closed. The weather did not help, being rather wet and miserable. Went to see the last remnants of the cherry blossom, had missed the timing by 2 weeks. There is a lot to see... More

Just go and enjoy all various museums and galleries on offer in this historic and beautiful park. The national museum at the northern end is a must and the small shrine and historic house of the shogun as well as the Eastern culture museums are also worth the time.

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.
