Tokyo Metropolitan Ueno Park

Tokyo Metropolitan Ueno Park is a park located in Taito-ku. In 1873, along with Shiba Park of Minato-ku and Asukayama Park of Kita-ku, it was the first park to open in Ja-pan. Within the park there are such things as a water fountain, Shinobazu Pond, Ueno Zoo, Ueno Toshogu, galleries and museums including The National Museum of Western Art, a baseball field and an outdoor stage. In spring, Sakura-dori Street is crowded with people who go out to see the many cherry-blossoms in full bloom.

Access

The park is a two minute walk from Ueno Station on the JR, Ginza subway and Hibiya lines. Exiting from Keisei-Ueno Station on the Keisei line, it doesn’t even take a mi-nute to reach the entrance of the park.
