Ueno Park - Review
The Ueno park is officially called the “Ueno Imperial Gift Park “ because it was a gift from Emperor Taisho to Tokyo city as a place of public recreation. The park is rich with greenery and birds during winter. This park also includes many other attractions in it. A number of famous museums like the Tokyo National Museum, the National Museum of Nature and Science and the Shitamachi Museum to name a few. The park also has a shrine to Benzaiten and Tokugawa Ieyasu's Toshogu shrine. The Shinobazu Pond is a pretty sight with pink water lilies and a good photo spot. You can make it a trip full of photographs and also a place to calm your senses because just like other Japanese parks, this park will give you peace of mind. The best time to visit this park is in spring when the cherry blossoms or Sakura blossoms as they are called are in full bloom. The park is full of pretty shades of white and pink and the weather is perfect for picnicking. The Japanese call this "Hanami" or "Flower viewing". It is a time of celebration and relaxation and Ueno park is central to this activity in Tokyo.
Make Ueno Park a must see part of Tokyo itinerary 5 days, it is just about 2 KM from Sensoji Temple, another historic place in Tokyo.
This much-cherished gift from the then emperor of Tokyo City - Emperor Taisho is indeed priceless position of Taito-ku, however Ueno Park Tickets are absolutely free of cost.

Ueno Park, Tokyo Reviews
This place is huge! You could spend a day if you really want to visit all of its museums and the zoo included. They also set up seasonal fairs, selling items like carpets and bags. Should you feel hungry in the park, there are several cafes and a Starbucks store in the middle. Definitely recommended even for bringing in infants to enjoy the scenery. Place is very stroller friendly.
Big park combination of park, zoo, shrine, but it good to walk around and see the view. Very peaceful and calm walking here. But my bad, I went there during winter so not so attractive. Looking at the pictures taken during the fall, spring is amazingly beautiful. Serene. A tranquil place to visit. Very close to Ueno station so you can layover a while after visiting hectic Tokyo.
Large park with many attractions. For dates they have a small lake with boat rentals, nice view with fountains and plaza. They also have multiple museums surrounding it. Ueno zoo is also famous for its panda but please keep in mind it is not open the first weekday of each week
A large majority of attractions in Ueno are located here in this beautiful park. A combination of traditional architecture related to Buddhist temples, and Western smooth tiled pavements and walls. Many benches to sit and enjoy the nature and fountains. Not only is the zoo and some museums connected, but many cafes and restaurants are also here
Ueno Park is a spacious public park with temples visit and nice walks. Also in the park you will find the Tokyo National Museum (holds the world's largest collection of Japanese art, including ancient pottery, Buddhist sculptures, samurai swords, colourful ukiyo-e (woodblock prints), gorgeous kimonos and much more), the Tokyo Zoo, Art Museum, Nature and Science Museum and the Ueno Royal Museum. The area is also popular for shopping, restaurants and night entertainment.
