"Ueno Park" Ueno Park and Zoo Tip by bladedragon
Ueno Park and Zoo, Tokyo: 84 reviews and 149 photos
Ueno park is a huge public park just next to Ueno station.
There's so many things to see here, you can easily spend the whole day, of course that's if you don't visit all of the Museums inside the park.
Anyway due to the time constraint and lack of research on my part, I skipped or missed quite a number of interesting sights there.
Here are some of the highlights:
-Saigo Takamori's statue (I missed this one)
-Ueno Zoo (no time to visit)
-Shinobazu Pond (should be nice on spring, but it was winter when I was here...)
-Many Shrines and Temples: Hanazono Inari Shrine, Benten Hall, Toshogu Shrine, etc.
-Many Museums: Tokyo National Museum, the Orient Museum, the National Science Museum, the National Museum for Western Art, the Tokyo Metropolitan Fine Art Gallery, etc.
-more than 1000 cherry trees! (they're all bald on winter...)
-And not to mention the many entertainers trying to amuse the visitors.
Address: Ueno Koen, Taito-ku
Directions: Within walking distance from JR / Tokyo Metro / Keisei UENO station.
