After visiting Shibuya, let’s go to Ueno where you will find the Tokyo National Museum as well as the Ueno-Koen Park. If you accidentally visit in the cherry blossom season in late March or early April, you will enjoy a variety of wonderful flowers. Located next to the park is the Ueno Zoo which has more than 2,000 animals like the panda, lion, tiger, and more. Maybe you will not be able to visit museums, parks, and zoos on the same day, so pick the ones you really want to see depending on your preference.
