Strangely, access to the pagoda is only possible within the grounds of Ueno zoo. The rest of the temple complex seems to be outside the grounds in the park. Still, it's a nice looking pagoda and well worth a look.

The Kyu Kaneiji Five-Storied Pagoda is a beautiful Japanese pagoda that is visible both at the Ueno Zoological Gardens and the approach to the Toshogu Shrine. However, it can only be accessed from within the zoological gardens. The design of the pagoda is classic and...More

This is a pagoda, all right, but... you cannot touch it... you cannot feel it... you can just look,, so, I do not like it.... but if you like to just see things... this is a great one!!!

It is a beautiful pagoda located inside the zoo. If you have an interest in Japanese architecture, you will not want to miss this. I took several photos of it from outside the zoo with cherry trees framing the foreground.

You can see this peeking out through the trees of Ueno Park as you wander through the temples which border along side it. A true gem of a temple which makes for some very good photos. Would happily visit it again and again.

This is a remaining cultural property of the Kaneiji Temple complex and makes a beautiful photo op along the romantic Shinobazu Pond in Ueno Park. Worth a visit when you are there.

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
