Ueno Park, Taito
(4.4/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
A hub of cultural attractions, Ueno Park originally served as the gardens of the Kaneiji Temple during the Edo period. In 1873 it opened to the public as one of the first Western-style parks. An island temple to the goddess of fortune and beauty floats in its pond, while the national museum and art museum stand as bastions of Japan's rich heritage. Rest up between cultural sightseeing, stop by the zoo, or visit the market under the elevated train line. In the spring, join the flocks of visitors enjoying the over 800 blossoming cherry trees.

  • It's a huge park, to visit it takes a very long time. Surely with cherry blossoms gives an entirely different effect, but is definitely worth a visit. We have visited the zoo.

  • Nice big park with many things to see. There's a nice Unagi (eel) restaurant to the Northwest with traditional seating on tatami. They also spoke a bit of English and were very welcoming.
  • nice park to walk around. close by some good ramen and many izakaya place. ameyko market to get asian stuff and fresh fish.
  • Probably the largest park (green part) inside Tokyo. When you get in there, you realise, it is not only the park. The area houses the Ueno Zoo, The Western Art Museum and so on. The park is tremendously beautiful and very well laid out. There is a huge playground for kids right outside the Zoo entrance. Go for a walk or run or a whole day trip with the family; you will surely love it!
  • So much to explore here. World class museums, massive zoo, dratini nest down by Shinobazu pond... Psrk Side Cafe in the moddle of the park, by the koban is a great place to have lunch on sunny day. If you're in Tokyo, Ueno Park is a must.
  • Nice Park, but even better enjoy one of the rare restaurant open air into a park, especially nighttime, very very nice! And good food as usual anywhere in japan ;) Worth it once for the atmosphere
