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.

I have been to this park on many occasions. It is right next to the train station and therefore easy to access. The park offers a great mix of western and Japanese values, for example during the cherry blossom you can sit outside and really savour every moment of the blossom which in Japan is seen as a massive tradition....

The park is quite big and it offers a lot of sites. Make sure to see (among other things) the lake area and the temple on the opposite side, the pagoda and the temple (next to the zoo area) and also enjoy a nice walk on a nice clear day! Do not rush it!

This is a beautiful park with several museum inside and restaurants near the exit. We came here to see the Tokyo National Museum. When we left the sun started to come out and the park looked even more beautiful The train station with the same name is very close to this park.

Visited the park in the early morning. Less crowded but the crowd gradually start building up soon after noon. Nice place to relax and picnic. Many attractions to go around the area. Nice breezy weather but be prepared if it rains as rarely seen a closed area. Bring a mat if prefer to sit under the trees especially in autumn... 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.
