#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.

  • For those living in the Northeast is the very entrance to Tokyo. I'm 停marou Shinkansen at Tokyo station, the plane is leaving to Haneda Airport, but they say Ueno a scent of the Tohoku district. While Ueno onshi Park, Zoo and of many green parks ideal for a relax in the family. Also, the Park is, of course, the entire Ueno abuzz with pandas Shan cute last year Xiang was born. Well, I like Ueno Park is a stroll near the Pagoda Buddha Hill, seiyoken, and Ueno Toshogu Shrine. So far in the middle of the city, just like Tokyo history can be felt. When you get off the Park exit of JR Ueno Station really is first Museum of Western art, Tokyo National Museum, the children's Science Museum, and is too much and where you want to look carefully! Night at the Lyceum's classic watch, is wonderful. This is where you want to go spend time more.

  • Beautifully kept area, although lots of concrete as apposed to grass, could spent several hours wandering around. Next to railway station if you are waiting for a train  more »
  • In Tokyo's famous cherry blossom viewing. If you come to the old cherry blossom viewing space and space can drink standing without roads or rugs, new born. Descend from Ueno Station, come from Panda Hashiguchi Panda over the bridge went you want. Panda Hashiguchi, in his right hand is stuffed Giant Panda. I think good pictures, go across the wide bridge with spots, so memorable.

  • Nice park to have a stroll. Walk around the lake, where people are renting sea-bicycles to enjoy a sunny day. There is also a small bazaar close to the lake and the shrine, with street vendors and local food.
  • A very good place for family outing. The garden is nice for the kid to run around. The museums are great for the older children.
  • Come during cherry blossom season! Huge festival in the park with food and people from all around the world. Absolutely stunned by the amount of folks in the park during the day on a Tuesday. Just enjoying.
  • The park did not look too good when we went, as sakura season had just ended and the cherry blossom trees had therefore gone bare. However, it was nice to see the locals enjoying the park and also nice to see the market at the centre (by the shrine). It was a pleasant walk to go on.
  • 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.
