Ueno Park, Taito

(4.4/5 based on 3,400+ 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.

  • Taman Ueno terletak sekitar 100 m dari stasiun ueno. Disini berderet pohon sakura sepanjang taman, jadi ketika sakura mekar taman ini akan dipenuhi bunga sakuran yang indah. Karena letaknya yang strat...  more »
  • As much as you see in photos is not justice. Take advantage and see it in April to see it at its best. But it is also nice but far from the impressive thing that gets in April.

  • Amazing place to visit and enjoy. My sister and I, enjoyed our time here (Nov17 2016). The park is huge and lucky for us, it wasn't a busy time, and there are only few local people at that time
  • One of the best places to visit if you are in Tokyo. Beautiful. You will also enjoy the food and markets spots in the Metro-subway area next to Ueno Park, and taste the best Ramen in your life
  • If you are tired of all the shopping malls in this metropolitan, Ueno Park would be a very nice place to visit. There are museums with impressive art pieces showcased and it's a really beautiful park.
  • On my visit (11th March), the cherry trees were about to start to blossom. Hence, the park was just ok. A park with some shrines, nothing more. If the blossoms were ready though, I think this would be a totally different story. So make sure to visit end March, begin of April!
  • Very huge park. There are Museum of Art and Science,Zoo and Shrine. Beautiful in every season especially autumn and spring.
