Absolutely beautiful

We really loved this area, great for families. Many museums and temples, plus zoo. Also, things for small kids too. Definitely worth a visit.

Ueno Park is a pleasant park with historical points of interest and many museums within the ground. Nice walk around the lake which is full of lilies and pleasant surroundings. Many business people take time out from work to walk in the park which is a bit of fresh air in the middle of a bustling city.

This park is fantastic. Filled with people rain or shine. It simply shimmers...be it when it is filled with cherry blossoms and pick-nickers or reflecting the gold ginkgo leaves during an autumn rain. The National Museum is here (several museums actually) and the Zoo. Come for the Museums or just a walk...it's all good. This last trip we had some... More

This was our main point for sakuras and it did not disappoint. We were also suppose to have a picnic lunch which did not happen because it was raining , but thoroughly enjoyed walking down the lanes of the park and enjoying the crowds and the sakura

Even when there is no lotus in the pond(summer), no sakuras (in Spring), or the leaves have not turned red in autumn, Ueno park area has so much to offer: From boating (at an expense) to watching swans/fish in the pond, to visiting temples of different gods/buddhas etc worshipped...If you are thirsty or tired, go queue for the long-queue/ long-history...

Lots of statues and monuments made this place educational as well as gorgeous. It was nice just to walk around and enjoy the weather and the surroundings here with plenty of choice of things to do around the area.

It starts from Tokyo national museum. Many museums on the way. The park gives you the beauty and the calm you need. But also crowded on weekends. A small lake close by. Consult google maps. At the end of the park under the jr railway there is a big market. Totally worth it. Go take a look.

Located right next to Ueno station. Ueno Zoo located inside this park. The park landscaping was nicely done, relaxing. Those who stays at Ueno area could grab coffee, breakfast at Ueno station and take morning walk at this park before going around Tokyo, as what I did. Nice place.

Thank helnor

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.
