From the JR Yamanote line to Ueno station and Park gate exit, we crossed a street and explored the park. Being Monday it wasn't crowded, and the zoo wasn't open. There's a Starbucks in the park, a lily pond for duck boats, some Incan street...More

There is something special about parklands that provide green space in cities. This is especially so in a city like Tokyo which is measured by its population and density of housing and commerce rather than its open space. This park has to perform many functions...More

One of the oldest and nicest parks im Tokyo with art Centers and great nature. Every season there has its charm. While its a perfect spot for the Sakura season and many local festivals. Worth a visit for a few hours while in Tokyo...

Went here for a walk during a Sunday morning. The park is very nice, and it has museums and a zoo nearby. The park is quite nice although not as beautiful as some other I saw in Tokyo.

A beautiful park, with a lake covered with water lilies hosting a temple in its middle, and many more temples. One can visit on the way to Tokyo's national museum. It can be reached very conveniently via Ueno's rail & metro station, and offers a...More

There are many museums in the Park, you can see many of the paintings at these places. Park itself is good place to take a rest.

Ueno Park is a large park with different sections including a zoo. It is also an area with several museums so there are places to escape to should it rain. Overall, it's not a high priority site for tourists; it doesn't make any effort to...More

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
