Spring Peony Garden in Ueno

Under fresh leaves growing all around, Spring Peony Garden is open in Ueno Toshogu Shrine. Winter Peony Garden is now a very popular post in this blog, and I’m sure its spring version is as breathtaking as winter. I confidentaly recommend it for travelers staying in Tokyo in this season. Why? You’ll see in this article!

Beautiful Photos & Guides of Spring Peony Garden

Ueno Toshogu Shrine is inside Ueno Park, which so many people visit for the national art museums, science museum, and Ueno Zoo. It’s so convenient to drop in, isn’t it?

The point is peonies are displayed with Japanese sunshades in the garden – it is a traditional beauty in Japanese spring!

Do you remember peonies were surrounded by snow fences woven from straw in Winter Peony Garden? In spring, it’s Japanese sunshades. It’s SO BEAUTIFUL and make us feel calm.

I updated as many photos as possible, so please enjoy!

Not only umbrellas, there are straw roofs over a lot of peony flowers.

They give straight shades on the flowers. I love it so much because it looks like cool winds.



Winter has passed and it’s warm in April (especially early May). I saw bees flying flower to flower.



The garden is comfortably quiet. I feel calm here.




Fresh green leaves of the tall trees around are soft for our eyes.


Some enthusiastic photographers were trying to get their best shots.





I’m happy if you share this beautiful day. You were lucky enough to find Tokyo Direct Guide, so NEVER miss it if you visit Ueno in spring!
