Away from the hustle and bustle of the city life, Ueno Park is a place worth your time to visit. Nice long path for walk, a park with shirines, exhibitions, zoo all in a park, and a nice pond too..

Another beautiful park in downtown Tokyo. Ueno park looks mesmerizing during all season. We went there during autumn and the trees were all yellow and red. There is no admission fee to enter park.

A walk around the Ueno Park, coupled with a visit to one of the several museums in the park, is a good and relaxing way to spend an afternoon. I personally suggest visiting the National Museum of Western Art which provides an opportunity to admire both the beautiful architecture of Le Corbusier and the works of art inside.

We were lucky because the weather was perfect when we went there. Clear blue skies and theres hardly any wind. Great day for a leisurely stroll in the park. You could spend anywhere between 30 minutes to hours in the park. There are plenty of nice spots to sit down and enjoy the scenery, maybe bring a picnic basket. There... More

With the Tokyo University of the Arts located on the fringe, this park is always lively with very talented buskers and street artists. 2 wonderful art galleries (one western and the other Japanese) and a science museum will make this a 2-day destination. Ueno Zoo is also located there, a little sad and outdated, but the Giant Panda still draws... More

I really enjoyed walking through this park. I visited after new years, so the trees were all lit up, which was beautiful.

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.
