The park is quite large, with fountains, museum and zoo. Neat for a long walk but the main attraction is visiting during the cherry blossom festival also known as Sakura. You can walk through the park and there will be students seated under the blossoms playing cards, talking and drinking. Neat experience normally in the month of April. Also see... More

Its not a place to be excited about other than when Sakura (Cherry Blossom) is in full bloom from the end of March to early May. Am amazing number of trees line the entire park and the "Hanami" (watching flowers) festival at that time is really what you want to be part of. Hanami (花見?, lit. "flower viewing") is the... More

Ueno park is located right next to Ueno Station and it is HUGE. You can find temples, park (of course), a fountain, a zoo, a few museums and a lot of people gathering, having a picnic, playing with the kids etc. Go here if you have one day to spent as it will take most of your time if you... More

We spent an entire afternoon in Ueno Park but that wasn't nearly long enough as there is so much to see. We walked from Asakusa but you can take the Metro or JR line to Ueno Station. The Park Gate exit from JR is almost directly in front of the tourist information office. Make sure you get a map so... More

Ueno Park is a fabulous place to stroll through. On one of the days there was a group of older women dressed in their traditional kimonoes, it was lovely seeing them enjoying a friendly amble through the park. We were here in summer, I would love to come back in spring to see the trees in blossom.

I've been there during the cherry blossom festival: AWESOME! There is a magic atmosphere. The zoo and other activities are inside, too. Easy to reach by JR. It's a must.

Just outside Ueno train station. There is so much to see in this park on a Sunday as many locals seem to visit. Within the grounds are many museums and a zoo. Has restrooms and plenty of areas were you can sit in the shade or people watch. There are also vans that sell food within the park itself. No... 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.
