Beautiful old temple in Ueno Park - the oldest temple in Tokyo. Small & very well maintained. Has lovely views of the park & a curious circular pine tree. A quick 5 minute visit while in the area.

Shrine shines in Ueno Park! After visiting numerous shrines on our traipse around Japan this shrine stands out for its proximity to the Ueno district and overlooking the park. Worth including with your museum and zoo visit.

Ueno Park is nice to escape the Tokyo crowds. I had a nice morning stroll in the park in the morning. This is a shrine dedicated to conception. As it is situated on a hill it also offers a nice panoramic view. Some interesting sites...More

One of Tokyo's oldest Budhist temples ( 1631 ) Is a mini-copy of the well-known Kyomizu-dera in Kyoto. The god ( Kannon ) Kosodate is enshrined in this temple and is the protector of childbearing. Many childless women come here in pelgrimage hoping to conceive.

I came across this temple inside Ueno park, as it was near the park entrance. It is home to an image of Kosodate Kannon, the goddess of conception. Nothing unusual, though there were few locals offering incense. As the temple is on a hillside, I...More

We visited the Ueno Park and this temple, located on the top of the hill with many cherry trees around it so it was very popular for blossom viewing and photo taking. You can get a good view down hill, be sure to walk down...More

It’s a small temple on the higher ground in Ueno Park. There were two willow cherry trees beside the temple. One was already blooming, but the other was still to bloom.

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
