Cherry blossoms

We went to Tokyo for cherry blossoms in early to mid April and managed to see the last bits of cherry blossoms and experienced hanami. Too beautiful. A must do for bucket lists.

This park has it all, a lake, a zoo, many museums and art gallery, temples, statues, street food, but the best time to go is in spring when the cherry blossoms bloom. You can take a plastic sheet and have a picnic by the lake. But be warned, it gets absolutely packed.

This is probably one of the most crowded spot for cherry blossom viewing. You will see many locals and some tourists sitting along the walkway under the cherry blossom trees eating, drinking, singing and chatting. The cherry blossom parties will go on from late morning to night.

As with everything in Tokyo, the museums in this park do not open until 10. The ground of the park, however, are open. I visited early one day before 10. I walked the ground and admired the fall leaves on the trees. There was a shrine open but nothing else. A great way to spend an hour before getting to... More

Such a great relaxing place to visit in Tokyo city. Temple, zoo, art museum & parks. Do spare some time to enjoy coffee in the center of the park.

The park is huge and beautiful. There was a concert at the park that made the local culture felt. It's December so the trees and flowers aren't so beautiful.

We were heading to Kitchen Street but disembarked from the train at Ueno Station & walked through the park. It was lovely, relaxing & there was a number of buskers doing tricks or playing music & a performance was happening on a stage. We didn't got to any galleries or the zoo but there is plenty to do if you... More

Ueno Park is very easy to access via train. The Park itself is quite large and there are a few temples located through out which is worth a visit. The lake with the large water lilies is also worth a visit as a large section is covered with the lilies and is quite a sight. There are lots of maps,... More

Beautiful park with a lot of activities going on - street performance, zoo, museum, temple, etc. Come during fall for the colours. It's a great place to spend 2-4 hours. After which you can adjourn to the nearby street market for food and some shopping.

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.
