As the fifth biggest park in Japan, this park is so vast that you will struggle to explore the whole grounds in a day. Not only featuring beautiful flower gardens, the park also has a pool, barbecue area, bonsai garden and Japanese classic garden where you can enjoy a Japanese tea ceremony. With various flowers and impressive scenes changing each season, it’s the best place to have a picnic and take pictures. If you would like to feel refreshed and relaxed to escape from the city’s hustle and bustle, this is the place you should visit.

Ueno Park – Ueno, Tokyo

Ueno Park is a large park in Ueno, east Tokyo, with a big zoo which is popular for its pandas and national art and history museums. As one of the famous parks in Tokyo, it is located next to the Ueno station which is very crowded as it has access to bullet trains, overground and underground trains. Boating is heavily encouraged in this park as a relaxing retreat. Compared to other areas close to the station, the boating area is very calm and hidden. The colourful swan boats will give you unforgettable experiences.
