Create an itinerary including Ueno Park
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Ueno Park and other Tokyo attractions using our handy Tokyo trip planner.

  • Great park with lots of museums and temple. Strolling around the park enjoying trees and gardens then take an intermittent break in various museums is a good way to spend time leisurely

  • 『芸術と文化の集合体』と言っても過言ではない程に魅力の詰まった公園。科学・美術・舞台・神社仏閣・路上パフォーマンス等、古今東西問わずありとあらゆる芸術や文化がこの公園に集っている。特に何らかのイベントがなくても散策するだけで充分に楽しめる広さを誇る。公園に植えられている桜並木は春の東京の名所の代名詞で、花見のために国内外から多くの観光客が訪れる。 東京観光において最も有名なスポットの一つであるだけ...  more

  • I love this park. It's big, central, easy to get to and an immediate escape from the big city business (if you feel like a break from that of course ^^) This park houses a number of museums and Ueno Zoo (big and cheap). There's also the pond with the lotus flowers which is quite impressive (in summer, in spring there are no plants visible) and close by 2 shrines and a temple. Loads to see when taking a nice stroll through the park. Very much recommend visiting!
