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

  • I love this park. It's big, central, easy to get to and an immediate escape from the big city business (if you feel like a break from that of course ^^) This park houses a number of museums and Ueno Zoo (big and cheap). There's also the pond with the lotus flowers which is quite impressive (in summer, in spring there are no plants visible) and close by 2 shrines and a temple. Loads to see when taking a nice stroll through the park. Very much recommend visiting!
  • Same as ussual i like Ame yoko
