Ueno Park is famous for its cherry blossoms. In addition to many great museums, such as the Tokyo National Museum and the National Museum for Western Art, you can also enjoy the oldest zoo in Japan with your family. There are about 500 animal species. You can also go on a boat-ride in the Shinobazu Pond, which is the largest pond in the city.
