#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.

  • From where I stay at Shin-Okubo to Ueno station only 11 stations stops at a price of 200 yen or around Rp 22,000 per person. For to the Ueno Park, GPS led me from the station into a 3-story building contains a cafe and a restaurant. Wondered why the Park is located within the mall. Why GPS directed me continued up to the third floor, had doubts back down again, but my boss already sepuh convinced me to get just what the word GPS. Once on the 3rd floor of a new plasticity walah grounds. Great! the garden underneath it is a cafe and restaurant. Actually there is another road, from Highway then ascends to a ladder that is on the left and right of way, just because there is an elevator in the mall happens to be good right to the seniors. Tour the garden is not enough time it was 3 hours late, with flowers and willow that ginko and yellow, flushed orange so dominant and dramatic, then fall toward winter. In the garden a lot of activity, there are foreigners who played violin with the classic songs that I like, Dance of Swan, uuh so the more romantic. Tired of touring, there is a coffee house a.k. a Starbuck's at the end of the garden.

  • 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.

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.
