"UENO PARK" Ueno Park and Zoo Tip by hotshot0428

Ueno Park and Zoo, Tokyo: 84 reviews and 149 photos


It is a very big park surrounded by a lot of many different trees.
The park featuring the Ueno Zoological Gardens as well as various museums such as Tokyo National Museums, the National Science Museums, Ueno-no Mori Museums is a treasure house of culture and art and many others.
It is a hang out for homeless Japanese and some of them Ueno park is their home they even sleep there.
I just walk around the park and they are harmless people.
One Japanese lady was passing by, and I asked her in Japanese, "Shashin wo totte kudasai" meaning please take a picture. I am not sure if it is the right words but one Japanese friend from Akita teach me this words.
