Zoo

This is Japan’s first zoo, founded in 1882. Around 2500 animals across 350 species live and are bred at this urban zoo, a slice of nature despite its location in central Tokyo. The zoo is divided into east and west gardens. The east garden is hilly, and it features the popular “Giant Panda Building” and the “Japanese Animal Area,” where you can see creatures like the Hokkaido sika deer and the Japanese serow. The west garden is located just north of Shinobazu Pond, where sacred lotus grow, and it features the “Small Mammal House” as well as the “Children’s Zoo,” where you can get up close with the animals.

Highlight

  • The giant panda Xiang Xiang, who was born at Ueno Zoo in 2017, is available for viewing. Guests can queue up in a zoo-designated line for their turn at viewing.

    除了人氣熊貓以外,另一個重點就是鯨頭鸛,鯨頭鸛一共有4隻很可愛活動量很大,很適合帶小朋友前往

  • 林恩佩

    熊貓真的是太可愛了,能夠親眼目睹真是太值得了

  • 林玉涵

    日本最古老的上野動物園,如果要來看動物明星,要多預留一些時間,光是進熊貓館參觀就排了一個多小時
