We walk from shibuya to Ueno park and picnic 🧺. Enjoy our lunch by the lake with my daughter. The view not so nice this time, should come during spring time.

We were lucky enough to get to Japan in April when the cherry blossoms were at their best. We had the chance to see them in various parts of Japan. But if you can’t travel around the country and happen to be only in Tokyo,...More

In the middle of hectic Tokyo, a big park! We visited Ueno Park at the beginning of January, cold weather but sunny. Loved it. It's next to Ueno station and easy to find. Temples, shrines, museums and the Ueno Zoo...you find them all here.

Really enjoyed our walk through Ueno Park on our wanderings around the Yanesen area. It’s picturesque and certainly provides multiple photo opportunities. Very beautiful.

Finding it was simple. Walk it not so much because it is huge! It has many roads and is very educational, has many green areas and also a zoo (not very good) but also has a museum and free water drinkers are a lifesaver on...More

Even in winter this Park looks awesome. There is a lake in the middle with Lotus flowers there’s a zoo in the park and it’s right by public transportation. It really shines during the spring when the cherry blossoms are blooming

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

I agree with the folks above; three hours isn't enough time to see both, but I guess it depends on how you luck is. We went to the zoo specifically to see the pandas, and waited in line about 50 minutes(this was a Thursday... More
