Ueno Park often boasts of having the highest concentration of world class museums and galleries on the planet. Whether or not such a stat gets you excited, what is undeniably true is that this park is great for a day out. On the weekend it is full to the brim with people and atmosphere. Along with those museums and galleries there are temples, ponds, a zoo, and epic people watching potential. Grab a coffee from the new Starbucks and let the entertainment unfold before you.
There's much to be done in Uneo outside of the park, too. The nearby shopping street, Ameyoko, is a slap-in-the-face contrast to much of Tokyo's shiny department store shopping scene. Packed to the rafters with everything from fish to fake Louis Vuitton, it's one of the city's essential shopping experiences.

Ueno Park is a large park with a great variety of attractions. It's the location for many museums: the Tokyo National Museum, the National Museum for Western Art, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and the National Science Museum. It is also home to Ueno Zoo, Japan's first zoological garden. Just walking in the park on a pleasant day is worthwhile.

Ueno Park is lovely. Not only is it full of pretty shrubbery and ponds of coy fish it's also home to some of Tokyo's best museums including the Tokyo National Museum, the National Museum of Western Art, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, and the National Science Museum. Plus the zoo is here too. And the best part about all of these museums is that they are really cheap to get into, usually around US$6.
But behind that the park is lovely itself. There's lovely temples that smell wafting incense, and random buskers doing whatever it is the random buskers do. I ended up spending two days in Ueno park and barely spent any money at all!

She may be big but she is also dirty. The nearby museums are a plus but displays and lighting are quite poor. More famous than noteworthy.

Ueno Park is a large park in the Ueno District of Tokyo. I gave this 3 stars because although there is a lot on the grounds, it's not very green and is missing the feel of a park. With that said, Ueno's big draw is its cherry blossom festival, which I was not able to catch. Definitely worth a visit if you have extra time, but no need to go out of your way.

Any time you wander into this beautiful park, you will encounter strange things. Sometimes a group of Chinese acrobats perform in the middle of the day, and other times there are strange costumed fellows walking around in character. There are cafes and benches and beautiful plants everywhere, and in the autumn the colors will blow your mind.
