Ueno Zoo, or the Ueno Zoological Gardens, is the oldest zoo in Japan. Founded in 1882, it has grown over the years and had expanded its area to 14.3 ha (35.2 acres) and carries the flagship of the Japanese zoo industry. Ueno Zoo is divided into two sections, the East Garden and the West Garden, where there are unique facilities in each area so you can see wild animals up close, exploring their fascinating worlds. When you enter the main gate, and you are in the East Garden, where you will see Asiatic elephants, snow monkeys, and other exotic animals. Please don’t miss the Gorilla and the Tiger Forest, as well as the Bear Hill! The outdoor enclosures in the West Garden are inhabited by giraffes, hippopotamuses and zebras, all of which are African hoofed animals. The Vivarium displays a collection of reptiles, amphibians, and fish. The Children’s Zoo gives children direct contact with domesticated animals, and the Shinobazu Pond is the home of wild ducks, geese, and cormorants.
