Lovely zoo with a wide variety of animal and as all Japanese things well done. The panda bears were a bit moody but nonetheless interesting to see. Would recommend if you travel with kids or as a relaxing few hours away from Tokyo madness

While wondering around the park we found this attraction. We had not planned to visit a zoo but the opportunity to see a different selection of animals at a bargain adult admission fee of only 600 yen ( £3.30 as of May 2015 ) was hard to ignore. Yes, the Panda was impressive but also the super cute Loris and... More

This zoo is in the city, very easy to reach. It has many numbers of animals but other than Polar Bear, I think non of the animals have enough space. There are nice cafes in the zoo where there are many options even for children. Walky talkies do not talk at each stop, do not spend time with them. Just... More

Ueno Park Zoo is very good value, only 600 Yen adult entry fee . There is a good mix of animals including, Giant Pandas, Elephants, a Polar Bear ,a Tiger and other assorted animals and birds. The one downside is the pretty basic enclosures and a lot of bored looking inmates!

The zoo admission was not too expensive 600 Yen. The walk to the Park from Ueno station was absolutely beautiful, I would recommend just taking that walk if you're not interested in the zoo. Anyways, the zoo had plenty of unique animals such as black rhino, pallas cat (sooo cute!), panda bears and red pandas. Plenty of places to eat... More

We had no plans to visit the zoo but saw it as we were walking to the museum and noticed it has two giant pandas! This drew us in having never seen a panda before. So we entered and paid ¥600 each and went straight to the enclosure. The pandas are not as big as I thought but they looked... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
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 sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
