UENO ZOO

10.14.2017

FUN FACTS:

-- Ueno Zoological Gardens is the oldest zoo in Japan.

-- Founded in 1882, it has grown over the years, expanded its area to 14.3 ha (35.2 acres) and been the flagship of the Japanese zoo world.

-- It is home to over 3,000 animals from 400 different species.

-- In 1972, the first giant pandas arrived from China to Ueno Zoo.

-- The Five-storied Pagoda was built in 1631, rebuilt after destruction by fire, and in 1958 the owner, Kan'ei-ji temple, gave the pagoda to Tokyo Metropolitan Government,

-- This is hands-down one of the best zoos that I’ve ever been too. My mom is a die-hard animal lover like myself, so I have been to many zoos in my lifetime. As a photographer, I have recently taken some of my best photos to date here. My favorite animals to see were the giraffes, elephants, flamingos and snow monkeys!
