Ueno Park is just off the Ueno JR line. Lots to see many museums including the Tokyo national museum, science, technology, art and the zoo. The gardens are beautiful and a few nice restaurants

I was there at the temperature around 10 c. It was a perfect time for walking even though it isn’t a time of sherry blossoms yet. A lot of standing performance is showing there for a tip. A zoo, temple and shrine are in the...More

Ueno Park is the equivalent of London's Hyde Park. Lakes with paddle boats for hire, pop-up local food for sale, wide open spaces for families to walk, and of course, arts galleries and museums. So much to do on a Saturday or Sunday. Luckily I...More

There are no public parks in the world in the centre of a metropolitan city with a Zoo, museums, temples, lake, typical markets and awesome trees in the same place! Literally amazing!!

A great area and a great day out in Tokyo when combined with adjacent Yanaka and shopping street and all the Shrines therein. Be aware the zoo and all the galleries and museums in this area are all closed on Mondays

Not worth a trip to see the park but fun to walk through and people watch. Street performers liven things up as do the many dogs being walked wearing the latest in canine fashion.

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

I agree with the folks above; three hours isn't enough time to see both, but I guess it depends on how you luck is. We went to the zoo specifically to see the pandas, and waited in line about 50 minutes(this was a Thursday... More
