Ueno Zoo上野動物園

This urban zoo located in Taito City’s Ueno-onshi-koen Park is Japan’s oldest zoo, having opened in 1882. Inside are more than 500 types of animals, and it is most famous for giant panda in particular. The zoo is breeding and displaying the world’s three rarest animals that include the pygmy hippopotamus and okapi as well as the panda. From the 1990s the animal enclosures were refurbished to provide a space for patrons to see animals in more natural surroundings.

Review of Ueno Zoo

An old fashioned type of zoo. Even the rhinoceros had a very small, concrete enclosure. The queue to see the pandas was an hour and a half long but it was a public holiday.
Reviewed:2020/03/18 Ueno zoo great place to visit
Ueno zoo is at central Tokyo easily accessible for visitors. Very good place for kids to visit and learn about world animals. Panda is the highlight of the zoo. Young chi

We have been looking forward to visiting this compact city zoo for some time, having heard so much about it. The location is good, right in the heart of Ueno, Tokyo, a short walk from the train...

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
