Top ways to experience Ueno Park
The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

We were there after 6pm to try our luck with the cherry blossoms and were lucky to be able to see that a few trees with the blooming flowers. We took a short walk down the path that was lighted up with lanterns. The park is an easy walk from the Ueno station. The area around the park is very vibrant. Will definitely visit the park and its surrounding areas during the day next time we are in Tokyo.

Beautiful park with shrines and museums. We spent the day there with my 5 year old, plenty to do and see. We didn’t even make it into any museums or the zoo.

I was here on a cool, sunny February day, with a lot of locals out on their lunch hour. A beautifully designed park, with a zoo and various museums.

I spent 3 hours wandering around Ueno park with a friend from Tokyo I've known for 30+ years. Having lived in Tokyo for most of the 1990s I was initially thinking why Ueno park ? I've walked through it a number of times and never considered it much. But it was a great few hours visiting places I didn't know where there. Easy access from the station and also close to Ameyoko shopping street.

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 and the zoo it was a lot quieter .
It just happened to be a very sunny + warm 24c day , fortunately there is lots of shade and places to get food and drinks .
Our next visit , was a quiet weekday .
We had already visited the shrine , so this time we opted to go to the museum of art .
Very relaxing and pleasant afternoon out

This park is right outside one of the exits of Ueno Station, so it’s very accessible. There’s plenty to see here: shrines, lotus ponds, museums, zoo & outdoor art. I love the sculptures of Rodin. The lotus pond is dead during winter but looking at the size of it, I can imagine the incredible beauty when it’s in full bloom. I did not go into the zoo but I saw a lot of interesting birds on the pond. There’re some interesting buskers doing their stuff in the park so it was quite entertaining too. Overall, it’s a nice to wander around and a nice change from the usual shopping streets of Tokyo.

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 for, and to also give the tree's some grace period incase they flower too early or too late.
