Coming from canada and not knowing the trains I was able to make my way to the Ueno Zoo with relatively little problem - anytime I wasn’t certain I just asked someone. Came off the JR line and it’s an easy walk to the park...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

The zoo and its surrounding area offer quite enough shading from the sun, but yes I would second the previous review and suggest for you to bring an umbrella.

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
