Simply put these animals are being abused. If you have any sense of animal welfare you will find it disgusting. The room of birds is tiny, dirty, dark and with no outside space. It is very loud, packed with too many birds and the birds...More

I am guessing and I hope the owls, birds and animals there are well taken care of but I feel sad looking at them living in this very small place. I also think it's pretty unhygienic for the animals and birds to be in such...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old

Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
