Ueno Park, Tokyo Reviews
Nice park to have a stroll. Walk around the lake, where people are renting sea-bicycles to enjoy a sunny day. There is also a small bazaar close to the lake and the shrine, with street vendors and local food.
The park did not look too good when we went, as sakura season had just ended and the cherry blossom trees had therefore gone bare. However, it was nice to see the locals enjoying the park and also nice to see the market at the centre (by the shrine). It was a pleasant walk to go on.
I visited this extremely large park during the shoulder season in end of August 2017. It's a very pleasant place. There's a museum, zoo, and large open spaces to hold festivals and events (there's one celebrating cultures of Nepal when I came). You can easily spend the whole first half of the day here. Don't be afraid to lose your way. Map and signs are plentiful, as is almost anywhere else in Japan.
A very good place for family outing. The garden is nice for the kid to run around. The museums are great for the older children.
Come during cherry blossom season! Huge festival in the park with food and people from all around the world. Absolutely stunned by the amount of folks in the park during the day on a Tuesday. Just enjoying.
