InformationInformation

First opened in 1882, Ueno zoo is the most historic zoo in Japan. The zoo in Ueno Onshi Park covers an area of approximately 14 hectares and is home to around 3,000 animals of 500 different species from all over the world including endangered species such as Sumatran tiger and Western lowland gorilla. Among the Japanese the zoo is very popular for its giant pandas. Visitors can watch animal feeding times while areas allowing direct contact with smaller animals are popular with children, offering closer observation of animal behavior.
Ueno Zoo consists of two parts: Higashi-en (East Garden) and Nishi-en (West Garden). The Higashi-en features Elephant Forest, Polar Bear and Seal Oceans, Gorilla Woods and Tiger Forest, etc. In the Nishi-en, there are Vivarium, Eye-eye Forest, The Children's Zoo, etc. The Higashi-en and Nishi-en are connected by a 300-meter monorail line.
