It is an extensive narrow park that runs alongside the Sumida River starting at the Azumabashi Bridge.It is a fairly typical Tokyo park that ads a little strip of green You do get a good view of Tokyo Sky Tree from the park close to the river. Access is via Asakusa Station, the Asakusa and Ginza lines.

If you go during the cherry blossom period, the promenade is full of them. Unfortunately I went on January, but it was still a very nice walk. Due to time issue, we didn't have a chance to visit Skytree but would like to have a photo of it. This Park is the perfect place for it. It is within a... More

This was one of the top attractions I did in Tokyo. Go on a clear day. Go early morning (9:00 AM) to see the sun reflecting off the buildings. It is beautiful. Plan to take many pictures.

Nice to stroll especially at night time. Lots of restaurants nearby. Many high rise buildings and very clean area.

Didn't have much time before check-in after our visit to the Skytree, so had a walk down to this park - unexpected gem! Beautiful picturesque paths through a riverside garden. Was very quiet when we went, barely any people, and the adjoining shrine was just closing so didn't get to go in. Still, a nice peaceful area - imagine it... More

This park wasn't on my radar until my third stay in Asakusa, but it will be a favorite spot for future visits. Just a few blocks away from the crowds at Senso-ji, the well-landscaped park runs alongside the river. Numerous hydrangeas were coming into bloom when I was there, and it was obvious that other flowers would be equally beautiful... More

The park sits along the river and is a great place to see cherry blossom. There were lots of Japanese people having picnics wherever you looked and we joined them in having lunch there. It was a really nice atmosphere.

This park, almost devoid of tourists, is a pleasant quiet place where older people go to relax and enjoy nature. There are no particular activities, however.

Sumida Park was our favorite park in Tokyo for viewing of cherry blossoms because it is a riverside park affording beautiful views and interesting buildings across the river. The river cruises leave from a landing at Sumida Park, which adds to the spectacle. A couple of gift shops between Sumida Park and the Senso-ji temple complex had interesting and imaginative...

We visited this park on our first day back in Tokyo. We walked a long way from our hotel in Taito, looking for the first sakura blooms and we found ourselves in this little park. The scene was so peaceful, and the silence was occasionally broken by birds playing and chirping. We sat by the lake on boulders that must... More

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.
