The cherry blossom trees were out in full bloom when we visited. This park is fabulous. There is the zoo and museums aplenty within the park grounds. Lots of people watching as the locals picnic under the cherry blossom trees. A great space to enjoy the sunshine and for the kids to run around. Well worth a visit (or two).

Ueno is absolutely stunning during cherry blossom season though it will be teeming with people. Tourists and locals all come out to enjoy the blossoms. It's a beautiful walk down the sidewalk under all the trees. There are paddle boats available for rental (though the pond was also crowed with boats!). It's worth your time though if you don't mind... More

We stumbled into the park quite oblivious to how the locals celebrate the cherry blossoms blooming. Picnic sheets and people everywhere. All seem to be having a lovely time with a hearty food and drink picnic to weedle the day away. Quite a spectacle seeing the trees in blossom and how welcome they are to the locals. The park also...

Famed as being Tokyo's best park I visited here during Sakura blossom and it was a wonderful experience. To see all the locals out admiring this festive time of year in such beautiful surroundings was truly special.

A great place to go, have some lunch and just sit and relax. The cherry Blossoms in full bloom are a site to see, and even if you go in Winter, still a place of Wonder!

This is a great place to take a stroll on a sunny day, particularly if you're in Tokyo (like we were) during cherry blossom season. Nice wide walkways, and a path along the outside of a small lake at the southern end complete with an assortment of local birds and large fish. On one side, you also have the option... More

Spend at least a whole afternoon here. Between the museums, shrines, and gorgeous strolls Ueno deserves the time.

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.
