  • This place is beautiful during the fall. The leaves were all still on the trees and they were all shades of yellow, red, orange.There was a country wide market sale going on in the center of the park.

Didn't get to go the zoo that is located 3 min.... Read More

  • Ueno Park boasts the largest number of museums and attractions in one place in all of Tokyo. We arrived at 9:00am and still didn’t get to see them all. What Ueno has: two shrines, a statue of Saigo Takamori, a zoo, a merry-go-round, two lakes (one inside the zoo), boating, parking, at least 6 museums, quite a few restaurants and ice cream stands, a grand fountain, teahouses, and much much more. ... Read More
