Here's a great alternative to the crowded conditions of Tokyo. Ueno Park is a family-friendly location with enough attractions to please everyone. The only time it's busy is when the cherries bloom, and then it's the most popular place in Tokyo. Otherwise, it's a large, relatively sedate oasis, that's conveniently surrounded by train stations and subway stops, so it's quite... More

I have visited this park several times and it is very nice. A lot of activities such as museums on the inside. Nice cherry blossom at entrance when season.

I visited during winter where the flowers started to sprout from the trees. The paths was completely covered my symmetrical trees, building a memorising walking experience. I, however recommend, that you visit during autumn.

We stumbled upon this park while looking for a place to enjoy a picnic lunch. You can wander around and enjoy a peaceful walk, but there was nothing spectacular to see. Perhaps when the flowers are in bloom it would be more appealing.

I like here for autumn. Because you will see the yellow leaves and it's beautiful. From here you can go shopping and eating just across the road.

I went there around December 2016 with my boyfriend and it happens so that some parts of the park was undergoing construction. However, we went ahead and visit the Zoo anyways (bcz I adored looking at animals and stuff). The size of the zoo is unbelievable, considering that this park+zoo is located in the middle of a busy city. We... More

The park itself is quite simple (in February), though there are a lot of places to go from here, like museums a temple and a Zoo. This makes it a good park!

Not a must place to go, the park is nice, but just average, nothing breathtaking. A nice museum is just steps away

The entry ticket is a bit expensive. 600 yen for the exhibition, that's only like 20mins walk. But in general, Tokyo entry ticket are expensive.

This is a location where you can easily spend two three hours walking around the zoo and their museums . It is near the train station and easy to find it . Saw lots of family visiting there too. We may be back during the Sakura season in April .

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.
