I visited this during Spring when the cherry blossoms were blooming, so I really recommend visiting during this time. I'd recommend going early in the day to avoid the huge crowds (although even with the huge crowd it's still a lovely place to visit!). It's quite a large park and I'd definitely recommend visiting it when in Tokyo.

Great park for wandering around. There is a lake you can walk around with boats you can paddle on all throughout the day. Near zoo and museums

We spent a good three hours in this park. It was very crowded but everyone was having a good time looking at the cherry blossoms, eating food, and listening to the buskers playing along the walkways - lots to see and do.

A park for all ages with year round attractions. Right on the JR commuter train line. Visiting its many museums (including one designed by Le Corbusier) and zoo would take days which I did not have so I strolled through this beautiful park and enjoyed its cherry blossoms just budding in March. Systematized Good Will Guides (tokjyosgg.jp) currently offer free... More

The Ueno Park is located at the Taito district. It is a large public park which is the favorite spot for hanami (cherry blossom viewing) when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. It has nearby museums and the Ueno Zoo. Walking around the park is quite relaxing. Entrance is free.

The zoo, museums, temples and an amusement park are only a small part of this park. Throw in some great restaurants and on weekends the noise of buskers and thousands of people enjoying life and it's a must see on Tokyo. An easy train ride in. Oh, not to mention a million shops as you leave the park.

上野公園 - Ueno Park 寛永寺、上野東照宮、徳大寺、五重塔、上野動物園、五條天神社、など。 The zoo is famous for pandas. I'm not impressed by them. They are idle. The prairie dogs are much better. There is a Thai Sala at the zoo, gifted by the government of Thailand.

Pretty good place for walking, stay with your family, friends or couple. We bought Bento from supermarket and try to have a seat but unfortunately we forgot to bring out mat (i noticed most Japanese bring mat themselves and then place on the garden and enjoy their meal)

There is much to enjoy in Ueno Park especially when the cherries are in bloom however it is a little tired at the edges especially when food vendors occupy the margins at peak flowering time. There are excellent museums around here so it offers a great break out space for relaxation between visits.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
