If you want to see this lovely lazy creature, then this is the place to come with or without kids. The zoo has two parts and you can either walk between them or take a monorail ride for an additional charge. The zoo features a lot of the mainstream animals as well as rarer species like the Okapi. Of course there are restaurants and souvenir shops.
The panda is just to your right when you enter through the main gate. One panda for 3 security or is it the other way round?!
Entry fee (2005) for adults: 600 Yen
Bronze statue of Prince Komatsu No Miya Akihito
When walking around Ueno park you may see the statue of this former comander-in-chief, who established the organisation Hakuai-sha to help the wounded of the Seinan war. The organisation was later renamed "Japan Red Cross Society".

Walk in the park
Ueno is a good getaway from the concrete and glass that is everywhere in Tokyo. In Ueno you can get some fresh air while walking in the park, visit one out of the many museums located here, have a look to Tokyo Zoo or just watch the performers as they make kids hapy. There are also some temples to see and at the and you can go for shopping in the bazaar located near the Ueno Station! It's a great day trip in Tokyo!

Food and shopping!
Across the main street from the train station is enough stores and restaurants to keep you busy for a long time. I explored the area behind the AbAb store.
Ameyoko is made up of many shopping streets that sell many different types of products eg. from fresh fish, dried goods, souvenirs to cheap imported clothing, boots etc (mostly made in China).
