Everything you Need to Know about Ueno - Tokyo

Occupying the north regions of the city, historically Ueno was the first port of call for people from the north to enter the city. Today it is the historic and educational quarter of Tokyo with the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, The National Science Museum, National Museum of Western Art, Japan Art Academy, the Royal Museum, plus the Tokyo National Museum all within walking distance.

A stroll around the Yanaka district affords a rare glimpse of old Japan; the area avoided damage by war and earthquake and remains a quaint reminder of days gone by. Ueno Park is the main attraction with some of the country’s most beautiful pagodas and shrines positioned around Shinobazu Pond. During cherry blossom season the park is full of merry groups of Japanese people enjoying hana-mi, literally ‘looking at flowers’. This ancient tradition is still widely celebrated among people of all ages. Ueno is also home to Japan’s most popular and world-class Ueno Zoo.
