Ueno Park is a delightful place covering vast area in Tokyo. Although I usually don’t like places like this, where animals are captured in cages, I decided to visit Ueno Zoo.
Ueno Zoo in Tokyo
Mostly the animals have a lot of space, the area of the Zoo is extremely large. The environment is similar to natural habitats of animals. Although the elephants looked very sad. It’s Japanese oldest zoo. Tokyo Zoo is home to 2600 animals of around 500 different species. Some of them are really amazing and rare to meet. If you plan to visit Ueno zoo remember it’s very big and you will need a lot of time if you want to walk it. The zoo has also other attractions like historical structures. There is the five-storied pagoda of the old Kan’ei-ji Temple, which was rebuilt in 1639. Near Ueno Zoo there is Ueno-onshi-koen Park, which is amazing place to visit during all four seasons.
