“A park with performances”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

As a park the park at Ueno in Tokyo isn't so spectacular. It is more of a walk through park than a sit down park if you ask me. But there is som extra park life to it that could be worth the visit, at least in the weekends. Because then there is this different performances in the park, for example music, and that is really great I think. So if your going to any of the museums in the area at an weekend, maybe weekdays as well, take som extra time and see if you can find any performances going down in the park!

“most excellent adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Everytime I visited this park I found something new to do. From the real life like looking people statues at the museum to the zoo, to the dome theatre to the expansive walking areas to the quaint and popular starbucks to the restaurant. coolest park I've been to so far. The street artists that pop up are always such a sight. They do amazing things. I would recommend this to anybody and everyone. No matter who you are this is another world within a park.

“Lots of temples and a Starbucks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

A great place to see some temples and people watch for free. The park is about a 5 min walk from the train station. I will admit there isn't anything amazing but it does let you see sample old Japan.

Nice place to sit and walk through. Nothing stunning, but a nice walk nontheless. Surprisingly peaceful.
