NileGuide Expert tip:
It may take more than one trip to Ueno Park to take in everything you want to see
Tokyo's oldest public park in down-home Ueno is a sprawling, well-kept, and beautiful destination for a pleasant morning stroll, especially during hanami
(cherry blossom viewing) season. It's also a logical choice for the culture vulture, since it's home to numerous temples and shrines, as well as the National Museum
. If you wish, you can also rent a boat to tour the large pond at the park's south end. Ueno Park's mix of museums, historical attractions, and natural beauty can't be beat in Tokyo.
