Neighbourhood: Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.

Kiyomizu Kannondo is a Buddhist shrine near Shinobazu Pond. As its name indicates, it is a kind of imitation of Kiyomizudera in Kyoto. In my opinion, it is quite different. Anyway, it is a touristic spot in Ueno Koen.

Beautiful old temple in Ueno Park - the oldest temple in Tokyo. Small & very well maintained. Has lovely views of the park & a curious circular pine tree. A quick 5 minute visit while in the area.

This is a lovely very old temple. You go up a small hill to reach it. Once there you will be standing on a platform with a view of the park. The temple is a favourite of women hoping to conceive. There is a pine tree formed into a circle that you see from the platform. This was a nice little temple

Shrine shines in Ueno Park! After visiting numerous shrines on our traipse around Japan this shrine stands out for its proximity to the Ueno district and overlooking the park. Worth including with your museum and zoo visit.

We wandered here while in Ueno for vacation from the US. It's a beautiful historical building with a small shop inside. There's a lot of great photo spots up on the deck and nearby. No fee that I know of. The park is nearby too if you want to stop for lunch or just get a break from the hustle and bustle of the streets. The Ueno zoo, many other shrines, the Ueno station and tons of shopping are nearby as well.

Ueno Park is nice to escape the Tokyo crowds. I had a nice morning stroll in the park in the morning. This is a shrine dedicated to conception. As it is situated on a hill it also offers a nice panoramic view. Some interesting sites nearby so fits in most programms. Will just take you 10 minutes or so. I combined it with Toshu gu, National Museum of Western Art and lunch in Akihabara.

One of Tokyo's oldest Budhist temples ( 1631 )
Is a mini-copy of the well-known Kyomizu-dera in Kyoto.
The god ( Kannon ) Kosodate is enshrined in this temple and is the protector of childbearing.
Many childless women come here in pelgrimage hoping to conceive.

I came across this temple inside Ueno park, as it was near the park entrance. It is home to an image of Kosodate Kannon, the goddess of conception. Nothing unusual, though there were few locals offering incense. As the temple is on a hillside, I had a good view of surrounding while standing on the wooden balcony.
