#2 of 374 in Parks in Tokyo
#Nature / Park, #Must See
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.

  • Night visit the Kyosho that haunts cherry blossoms at Ueno Station near the park entrance, crowd. Cherry blossom season is wonderful. 160000 people visit every day throughout the garden will bloom and the Metro information, so visit at this time and slowly can be ornamental.

  • I visited this extremely large park during the shoulder season in end of August 2017. It's a very pleasant place. There's a museum, zoo, and large open spaces to hold festivals and events (there's one celebrating cultures of Nepal when I came). You can easily spend the whole first half of the day here. Don't be afraid to lose your way. Map and signs are plentiful, as is almost anywhere else in Japan.
  • This place is full of scenic beauty and art. You get a glimpse of both natural and man made scenery. The lights in the evening give a splendid aura. The park attracts international tourists and is a great place to take portraits and nature photographs. The park is so huge that it is not possible to see everything in one day.
  • Quite a big park with lots of things to do, a zoo, many museums, street food, shrines and a temple. There was also a special garden that was open but required an fee to get in. The park was nicely lit up in the evening. There are maps everywhere so its easy to find where you want to go and the park has bathrooms.
  • Extremely beautiful park, nice scenery. We have seen some interesting show and fantastic Japanese building here. Great place to take a casual walk and spend half a day in Ueno.
  • Very nice park to stroll around. Happened to have art exhibition when i visited. There is also the Ueno Zoo, temples etc.
