Be introduced to the little known areas of Ueno Park!
The official name for Ueno Park is Ueno Onshi Park, and it spreads across 500,000 square meters (the equivalent of 10 baseball stadiums). Within its grounds stands a museum, a zoo and a number of shrines and temples. On this tour you will enjoy a walk around the park, collecting special stamps from the temples and shrines that you visit. Your otomo tour guide will introduce the history behind the temples and shrines and tell you interesting facts for you to enjoy along the way. For example, they will tell you story behind the row of bright red torii at Hanazono Inari Shrine, which is also a great place to take photographs.
