I visited Japan with my family in August, 2018 and everything was fantastic. This Pagoda is in a nice Park (Ueno Park) with a large green area.

This Pagoda can be viewed from Ueno Park but better viewed from Ueno Zoo side. It's an amazing building, but can only be viewed from the outside, cannot go inside. If you are not going to the zoo, viewing it from the Ueno Park side...More

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.

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.

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
