Beautiful green park

Ueno park is a good place to relax and take a good walk, lots of trees and things to look around. Take the time and watch street performers. Definitely would come back!

We were staying in the Ueno district so we decided to spend one of our days in Tokyo exploring the park and its many galleries and museums. We arrived at the park before most things opened so we took a little walk around the pond, which is choked full of lotuses. It looked like an actual pond on our map,... More

First time visiting Ueno Park and was surprised by the size of it, plenty of exercise for the group. Visited the current peony exhibition, the flowers on display were varied and beautiful. The exhibition was very neat, with some nice music playing in the background which added to the ambience and the group of us really enjoyed taking photos of... More

Not much to see in winter and it looks like renovations are being carried out. May be improved by spring...

We walked around the park on a cold but sunny day in midweek. there were loads of people about and it was very nice after the clamour of the market by the train station.. the temple is across a busy road and was completely boarded up for renovations,, a sign at the main entrance would help let people know that...

We visited on a winter's day with bright sunshine. Ueno Park has so many attractions packed into it, we didn't know where to start. The park itself is charming and we saw street performers, locals with strollers, retirees and couples. This place is ageless and has an ageless appeal. On one side was the Tokyo National Museum, on the other,... More

Found this area to be a lovely part of town in Ueno. It was easy to walk around and had several maps so you knew where you were. Interesting things to see along the way and a nice place to take a sandwich and watch the world go by. We also liked the interesting street artist that was at the... 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.
