Ueno Zoo

The Ueno Zoo is the oldest and the most popular zoo in Japan. Nearly three million people visit here every year. In 1882, it opened in Ueno Park (refer to #367). A part of the Shinobazu Pond (refer to #368) belongs to this zoo.

It contains about five hundreds species of animals, which is the second largest number among the zoos in this country. This zoo consists of two parts: West Park and East Park. These two parks are connected with a monorail line.
