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.

  • We were a bit naïve to think the cherry blossoms would be around during our visit. They were not. So it pays to do your homework to find out exactly when they might flower, how long they might flower....  more

  • One of the biggest park in Tokyo to visit. Very close to Museums and the zoo with panda, this is a great place for picnic during the cherry blossom season (also at night!). You can see shrines and a nice pond as well. I like visiting also Ameyokocho, the casual street shopping area just a new walk away from this park.
  • Ueno Park is too big of a complex that it would be crazy to rank it any less even if I haven’t seen all of it yet.XD There are many places to visit, from museums to shrines, to a zoo and of course park grounds. Famous as a spot for sakura in spring, but great for a visit anytime of the year as well, to omoimasu. Of course the museum exhibits have galleries that are regularly changed so there will be something new every time. I would say even a whole day is not enough to see everything that is found within the park grounds.XD
