Park

Ueno Park is a vast park with a deep history. It is one of Tokyo’s most famous and iconic sightseeing spots, and tourists from both inside and outside of Japan flock to it during springtime to see the cherry blossoms. The park is up on a hill, called Ueno Mountain, and is also home to Shinobazu Pond. These alongside its vast variety of greenery and many waterside views make it a beautiful urban oasis.

Highlights

  • Shinobazu Pond is broken up into sections, including the “boat pond” where you can go out on rowboats, swan boats, and pedal boats, the “lotus pond” that is, as its name suggests, covered in lotuses, and the “Cormorant Pond,” which is inhabited by birds of the same name from the bordering Ueno Zoo.
  • During cherry blossom season, around 800 cherry trees burst into beautiful bloom, and tourists from all over visit to see the beautiful flowers.
  • The park is home to many cultural facilities, including museums and the zoo.

    櫻花滿開時,日本人都在樹下野餐喝酒賞櫻花,公園內擠滿的人群,賞花的興致大打折扣。

    上野公園是東京熱門的賞櫻地點,櫻花季來臨時人潮擁擠多到水泄不通,很多人的櫻花樹下席地而坐,邊野餐邊賞櫻花,一陣風吹來可以看到櫻吹雪。
