Ueno Park, Taito

4.4
#2 of 254 in Parks in Tokyo
Nature / Park
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.

  • Very nice and great! Very clean and plenty to eat. Everywhere you go in Japan won't miss the food.

  • Ueno Park is one of the first public parks of Japan (1873), has several attractions such as the Shinobazu Pond with Lotus flowers, several temples, such as the Kyomizu Temple Kannon of 1631 and Red Gojo Shrine Toriis and a five-story pagoda which stands on the site. Easy to reach because it is right in front of Ueno Station. .

  • Beautiful park in the middle of Tokyo filled with museums. I cannot suggest this park enough. Of course, we visited it during cherry blossom season, but I'm thinking that in all other areas it must be just as beautiful! I suggest it during the sunset period since during that time you get amazing colours. Good luck in exploring it all, it is gigantic!
  • Wonderful huge park, home of the Tokyo Zoo. Has something to offer for every season. For me the very best thing to do is rent a boat on the small lake. Also i loved how they are organizing different ethnic festivals on the main park plateau. It gives you an opportunity to try different food and meet new people.
  • I love this park! It's so beautiful during cherry blossom season, it's in full bloom. You walk through the corridor of cherry blossoms. At the end it's a temple and a little fair like booths with plenty of junk snack food.
  • From museums to shrines or temples, there are quite some things to visit. It's famous for the cherry blossoms, but I would say even more for the mass of drunk people under them, or 3 hours of waiting line for the must see exhibit. Pretty crowded during the weekend.
  • Beautiful and big park. Must visit place during cherry blossom, spectacular view and crowd !

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
