Ueno Park, Taito

4.4
#2 of 422 in Parks in Tokyo
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.

  • A great park, full of attractions. If you come in spring you can admire one of the most famous place to watch the cherry blossoms bloom. In other periods it is great to take a walk, visit one of the museums here or go shopping in the shopping district across the street. My favorite place are two temples, one in the pond and other overlooking it from the hill with the amazing tree growing in circle in front of it
  • A very beautiful park, surrounded by great museums, cafes and shrines. Great place to kill an afternoon, especially during cherry blossom season. There are often street performers of high caliber, and regular festivals. Highly recommend hopping accross the street and spending a few hours at the National Museum which is only 620 yen as of Feb 2019.
  • My lovely park in Tokyo. The park is always beautiful at any time of the year, at any time in the morning, day, and night. Magnificent alley's with very old trees, wonderful fountain. A lot of interesting and wonderful museums, exhibitions, zoo. Recommended.
  • This is a huge park in the middle of Tokyo. Inside the park, there is also the famous Ueno Zoo, where the pandas are. There are a lot of people riding bicycles and jogging in the area. It's a very nice park with a ton of greenery. Since I went during the winter, the water lilies are wilted, but it's usually a very nice display. There are some food stalls during the day, so you can grab a bite to eat if you're hungry. Definitely a nice place to check out.
  • A beautiful and peaceful place to visit! I can see why this park is popular with the locals. A wonderful smattering of shrines all around the area. Absolutely gorgeous.
