Ueno Park Walk, Beautiful Nature, History and Culture



Ueno, Tokyo, Japan
45 mins

About the tour

Ueno Park is one of the most popular areas in Tokyo, for both locals and tourists. Once a part of the vast ground of Kan-eiji Buddhist temple, Ueno Park is today the home of culture: there are museums, a university, a zoo and historical spots. On this tour you will walk through this beautiful and interesting area, stopping by a brilliant shrine with gold leaf and elaborate carvings, and a charming temple with a splendid view. If you are lucky, you may hear the serene sounds of the temple bell, which bring you back to the atmosphere of the samurai era.

Lovely tour. It was a pleasure to have the sound of rain in the background. Not fun for you to walk in, however you did a wonderful and very impressive tour. Warmest thanks for the explanations of history and your religion. I am looking forward to more tours from you.
