Ueno Park, Tokyo Reviews - Write a Review
Very big park with nice landscapes and activities. The couple of shrines I visited are we'll manage and we'll kept. There is also a Starbucks cafe at the park, but the queue is very long.
Beautful and fun. Really enjoyed the zoo. Definitely a must if you're in Ueno.
Massive park with temples, zoo and beautiful gardens. This is the perfect place to spend an afternoon. Great choice for families however there is lots of walking so be aware that the kids may get tired.
If you visit Tokyo, I highly encourage you to enjoy the beauty of this park. The Japanese do a wonderful job in grooming their gardens, and this is no exception. One of the most scenic times of year to vist this is late March, early April when the sakura are in blossom. It's just beautiful here! Many Japanese bring boxed lunches and enjoy sitting in the grass here and eating their snacks or lunches. SO if you can come and visit, bring some food and drinks and just take time to relax in this oasis of natural beauty in the middle of busy Tokyo. It's a very Japanese thing to do! Don't expect much inside as far as food sales, so try to buy your food before you get to the park.
One of a nice options to spend relaxing time with your family near Tokyo. Many nice tour spots closeby.
