I have been there during the hanami so was wonderful to see all these trees with the flowers. During this period you will see all the Japanese people eating under the trees. There is no ticket fees.

This park is known for the main path of cherry blossoms which leads towards the Ueno Zoo. They are beautiful, but there is also another section of the park around the lake which was stunning and worth the extra walk. They also have food trucks around there too.

Ueno park is one of the best places to see the cherry blossom - and half of Tokyo seems to have the same idea. Yes, it's crowded and there are people having picnics everywhere or taking a million photos, but it's worth it to walk around and see the blossoms everywhere. The park also holds the Ueno Zoo, a boating... More

In April when all the cherry trees are in bloom, Ueno- park is absolutely stunning! It is however very busy. If you can wait for the last days of the sakura, it makes for even better views. Once in the main alley of the park, if you take down the stairs on your left, you will make your way towards... More

This park is so peaceful and quiet. It is calming just to walk in and see all the beautiful trees and plants. Very spacious and well worth the visit.

Clean and big park. Best time to visit here is around April because of Cherry Blossom around the park. There is a zoo in Ueno Park (I think you need to buy ticket to enter the zoo). May be travelers with young children can consider going there too.

Huge gardens well laid out containing shrines and temples plus museums. Loads of places to eat. Very popular with locals for picnics, boating on a lake.

We went there at a time when so many locals were having a picnic. It was fun to look at all of them having fun and drinking too much alcohol. Some of them ended up sleeping on their respective mats already. There were so many people enjoying the cherry blossom trees and there were also food stalls in the area... More

I liked the stroll I made with my 21 months old. But surprisingly inside the park they charged me to go inside a flower show. It was unnecessary from my thought. There were some street food like bbq squid that I liked too.

We went during the height of the cherry blossom season. Many people were there with their family and friends. It's hard to believe that it's in the middle of Tokyo. A lovely day just strolling among the cherry blossoms. Very relaxing after a day of hustle and bustle.

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.
