1.UENO 2.TAMA

I recommend both ueno zoo and tama zoo.
http://www.tokyo-zoo.net/english/index.html

For travelers you maybe like to see zoo and something(e.g. Japanese museum)
Ueno zoo is very close to other spot like
TOKYO METROPOLITAN ART MUSEUM
http://www.tobikan.jp/access/english.html
yanesen

Ameyoko
http://www.ameyoko.net/access/

Tama zoo is bigger than ueno zoo, but it takes about 40 min. from shinjuku station by express .
