While not too large in area, Ueno Park is nicely manicured and offers a beautiful pond. The residential areas around the park are not too expensive to live with the rent being the Tokyo average (typically 80000 yens/month for a 30 m2 flat). Those with a view on the park may be more expensive thus, I'm not sure. There's several museums, a zoo, and a concert hall in this area as well.
