This is a very large park which includes several museums, Tokyo zoo, a temple and a shrine. You could easily spend an entire day here.

The added bonus is the people watching. Not as crazy as Harajuku but still quite interesting.

Uneo park is a great place to go and relax if you're getting sick and tired of the hussle and bussle of Tokyo. There's planty to see there with the zoo, museum and art gallery so its also an essential place to go for sight seeing needs.

I went here before I went to the zoo and we were just walking around enjoying how big the park was and how it was not full of hustle and bustle like it seemed everywhere else in the city was. There are all sorts of things to see here apart from the park; there is a zoo and an art gallery.

I would recommend a visit to here before you enter the zoo.

Ueno Park is a breather from the bustle of rest of Tokyo. Was passing by the station and had an impulsive moment to visit. Time well spent ;)

Recommended for the autumn view, but will not have visited if was not along my route, believe there are even grander parks.

We come to Tokyo every other year or so and usually stay near Ueno Park, which beckons to me during each visit, especially during cherry blossom time. The myriad cherry trees flank a long, wide walkway and the view of the blossoms during a stroll here is stunning. Locals spread blankets beneath the trees, where they enjoy food, drink and conversation. I have been to all the areas of Tokyo that feature cherry blossoms and Ueno Park remains my favorite place to see them.

But the park also offers attractions year-round. It holds the zoo (home to two pandas) and the following museums: Tokyo National Museum, National Science Museum, National Museum of Western Art, Shitamachi Museum and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art, where I have attended some excellent exhibitions. Just yesterday, I saw one there focused on Turner. It featured 110 watercolors and paintings by the artist. Other stops for wanderers include temples, shrines and a huge pond, where paddle boats and rowboats can be rented.

Sometimes it is nice to go to the park just to amble, away from the city's frenetic pace. Though lots of people are always there, the huge park accommodates them easily. There are many places to stop for a bite to eat or a hot or cold drink, including a very popular Starbucks.

Ueno Park is easily accessed by the JR Yamamota line and via the metro Hibiya and Ginza lines.
