Ueno Sakura Festival at Ueno Park, Mar/21/2019 to Apr/7/2019(estimated) 4.3
from 3/21 '19 to 4/7 '19
Ueno Park is one of the best places to see cherry blossoms in Tokyo.
The vast park is rich in nature, and has around 1,200 cherry trees along the park’s main promenade.
Ueno Park is the most crowded cherry blossom viewing spot in town as many people come for Hanami (cherry blossom viewing party) with food and drinks at day and night. Japanese lantern illuminate cherry blossoms veryt visionary at night.
Sakura-dori street is popular for the Sakura-view-point in Ueno park, which is most crowded and lively. If you want to see Sakura leisurely, Shinobazu Pond would be better, and you can enjoy paddling a small boat.

Visited this park at 10pm and again at 11am the next day. Felt very safe there even late In the evening. Park is so clean and well maintained, just a few steps away from the train!
It’s massive in size and a lot to see and do during the day. Would recommend 2-3 hours here.
There’s a zoo, a lake to walk around or paddle boat on, restaurants, a couple temples/ shrines, massive water fountain, and a few museums. It’s beautiful here, I would highly recommend a visit. Or if you have time to waste, bring a blanket and snacks and read a book in the grass or on the seating around the fountain.

Grounds always nice & well kept. Good food stalls always by the pond. Swan boats to peddle in there. Pond has flowers/fish/ducks! Has great history museum close with good bathrooms! Cheap to get in. Lots of picturesque trees any time of year.

A good park but rather sad looking zoo. Well fed animals but seem not well kept. But lets forget the animals, if u here to enjoy the park, you are gonna find one of the best, probably in the world

A very nice park. Safe and clean. There are lots of performing artists that you could support by giving donations for their performances. Great people.

After shopping around the market at Ueno, we walk to Ueno Park which is not in our plan.
It is a tranquil park with a lake in the middle (there is a zoo as well) where I have done my first meditation in Japan.
There is a temple in the park which I have done a review together with some photos.
Overall, it is a totally great experience different from the super busy and crowded markets/shops/Temple in Tokyo.
