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

yanesen

Ameyoko

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