"A park with many attractions" Ueno Park and Zoo Tip by muratkorman

Ueno Park and Zoo, Tokyo: 84 reviews and 149 photos

Ueno Park offers not only some green area for locals, but also museums, shrines, temples and even a zoo. It wasopened to public in 1873. The park has more than 1000 cherry trees and becomes a popular spot during cherry blossom viewing parties (hanami). There are many art museums inside the park. Zoo dates back to 1882, but unfortunately the main attraction panda (a gift from China) has died. Yet you can still buy panda souvenirs. Shinobazu Pond hosts a temple for goddess Benten and Toshogu Shrine is dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu.
