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
Beautiful park with lots to see. Take your time and stroll through the whole park. There are a couple of museums inside and in the outskirts of the park. We didn't have the time, but you aren't in a hurry then there's even for you to see :)
You can spend a whole full day in this place. The park is very big with various activities around the park such as zoo and museum. During weekend usually there are special event where you can enjoy your day. The park is also clean and you can enjoy a very good scenery.
Popular, crowded place in cherry blossom festival. I was there in the morning of the late winter. Few people was in the park, it was very peaceful place for relaxation. I got tons of photos here with the snowy background. It seems wonderful in cherry blossom festival.
One of the best parks in Tokyo. It is huge, with different sections. Besides lots of beautiful nature, it has a large pond, with paddleboats, (Shinobazu); Some temples, restaurants, Ford stalls, street entertainment, National Art Gallery, Ueno Zoo, and The national science museum. And as soon as you venture out of the park, there are electronic shops, department stores, movie cinemas, and the Famous backstreet markets. (Ameyoko). There is plenty to do in this area for a whole day.
One of THE most popular park in Japan to view cherry blossoms during the Sakura season because if its easy access from Ueno Station. Consequently it can become unbelievably crowded during that period. Otherwise, it's a nice park to stroll around especially in the morning.
