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.

  • It was nice, very picturesque. But a bit cold for my liking (my visit was during autumn. I'm from a tropical country so maybe that's a 'me' problem). Unless you want to spend extra to go to the museums or whatever (I didn't, I just wanted a nice stroll), I don't think there's much to see. There are some quaint little cafes around there though. I'd recommend it for anyone wanting to go someplace that has sufficient shade yet beautiful scenery.

  • Big quiet park in the morning. Can see autumn leaves in November. Many office workers walk through the park to go to work. Can also see some early morning joggers.

  • We frequently go to Ueno Park. There are so many things to do and see there. The Tokyo Zoo is located there, and there is also a nice lake with paddle boats and rowboats available for rental. There are museums, and restaurants in the park, as well as several shrines. We go there to see the ducks in the fall and winter, the beautiful cherry blossoms in the spring, and the lotus flowers in the summer. The park is beautifully wooded, and the walkways are shady.

  • Here is large awesome park in Tokyo. There are a lot of activities in here such as duck boat , many museums , many shrines and zoo. It's suitable for family and kids. If you come to Tokyo and don't have any plan in the morning. I recommend to come here Ueno park.

  • This place is great for photographers. The museums around the area are fantastic. Fall season is best time to go to see the leaves turn red.
