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.

  • Perfect garden to walk along with beautiful scenery and fresh air. There has some cafe and restaurant inside the park as well.

  • Our accommodation in Tokyo was a short bus ride to this park . The first time we went , we didn’t realise it was a public holiday. It was really very busy , but once we wandered away from the lake...

  • 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.
  • good place to chill and people watch or duck watch. zoo and lake were closed on dec 29 but there are many other things to look at. some of the trees were still in autumn colours
