  • Amazing zoo, it was really well kept. Everything was clean as in all Japan. We were able to see all the animals including the pandas. We were there like 3-4 hours to visit all exhibitions. Would recommend!!
  • Nice zoo located in Ueno Park. Many exhibitions are old and could do with renovating, but generally well kept. Good information provided in both Japanese and English. Extremely busy on public holidays, expect queues to see popular animals (panda queue was 2.5 hours today).
