Recommended Add-On during a Cherry Blossom Japan Tour.
Ueno Park in Tokyo is a popular destination for both tourists and locals alike. Featuring plenty of wonderful facilities like schools, museums, a pond, concert halls, and a zoo, this incredible park stands out from the rest. The park grounds were once part of Kaneiji Temple until the destruction during the Boshin Civil War resulted in the grounds being converted to a park. During the Spring season, Ueno Park is a popular
Hanami destination thanks to the hundreds of
cherry blossom trees that bloom during March. The park is filled with bright pink and white cherry blossoms petals, attracting large crowds to enjoy the spring air and festivities. With over ten million visitors annually, Ueno Park is without a doubt Japan's most popular park. In addition to sprawling cherry blossom trees and spots to relax in the bustling city of Kyoto, the park is also home to: The Tokyo National Museum, National Museum of Nature and Science, National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Shitamachi Museum, Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Classical Concert Hall, Tokyo School of Music, Tokyo School of Fine Arts, and Imperial Library.
Without a doubt, Ueno Park draws some of the largest crowds of visitors between the Spring season months of March & April thanks to the Ueno Cherry Blossom Festival. This event is held every year in the park grounds, beginning with the first bloom until the last petal falls off the sakura trees. While the event is a bit crowded, it's an excellent way to see how the local Japanese people enjoy the national flower of Japan. Explore the grounds, sample sakura mochi, and enjoy the Japanese flowers like the locals in Ueno Park.
