Ueno Zoo - 上野動物園

Opened in 1882, Ueno Zoo is the oldest zoo in Japan. Divided into an east area and a west area, the zoo is home to approximately 450 species including the popular giant pandas, elephants, giraffes and penguins. The west area includes a children's zoo with goats and sheep. The east and west areas are connected by a monorail (150 yen/ride), and there is also a five-story pagoda (an important cultural asset), which is part of the former Kaneiji Temple.
