The zoo is very big.. a lot of animals in there and especially there are some pandas. Magnificent! Must visit for kids.

We're both animal lovers, and regularly enjoy trips to our local zoo in Sydney. We may have somewhat spoiled us when it comes to other zoos. The opportunity to see the pandas is predominately what drew us here - but as we wandered around the...More

Fun experience, we mostly enjoyed the elephants, rhino, hippo, seals, unfortunately the panda was asleep and we didn't get to see the newly born cub. Food available here and drinks, two souvenir shops also, cool cookies :)

We stayed near this zoo, and decided to visit. It seemed on the small side. considering the size of Ueno park. It was clean and well maintained, but some of the exhibits, including the children's zoo, were closed for renovations. We enjoyed a few of...More

We get the pandas straight away so the big attraction is ticked off the list. It is a good sized zoo so there is plenty for everyone. There are two reasons I go to a zoo: 1 to be educated and enjoy the animals 2....More

After visiting this zoo we felt it was appalling. The animals seemed depressed at the sheer lack of space they had to move around and it was very sad to see. I can't believe it has such good reviews and people enjoyed it so much...More

As a family with 4 children, we have obviously been to many zoos, therefore, we wanted to check this one out and we were not disappointed in doing so. This was one of the best zoo experiences we have ever had. The animals looked well...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

Construction work in progress, I suppose. But I get you. I was there a fortnight ago. The zoo employees should be able to accommodate the animals regardless of the season or weather. After all it's the oldest zoo in Japan... More
