Very nice feelings visiting during one of the best week this year to see the Sakura. Entrance fee is required to get in but somehow not yet allowed to get inside the Shrine in Apr 19.
Recommended and would love to come back here again during Sakura blossom weeks.

Bare, windswept, and cold when we visited on Christmas Eve. Most likely nicer on a summer day with more greenery and atmosphere, or in the late evening when the lanterns are lit. The gold leaf is worth a photo or two but you'll need to pay to enter the grounds. It's really only worth visiting if you're in the area or around Ueno pond/zoo. Has a small pagoda, some stone lanterns, and quite a few small outbuildings.

It was an awesome experience. This place is a heaven. I don't know about other time but go this place when Sakura is there.

Absolutely stunning shrine set in the backdrop of ueno Park. The grounds are immaculate and it is a welcome visit and often a lot quieter than its more well known counterpart sensoji. It does cost 500 yen to explore and this is more to fund the upkeep of this historic site.

A pity one cannot see the internals of the shrine but still it’s a splendid view to take in, with all the glittering gold dazzling your eyes...
