The Tokyo Zoo, which is located in Ueno Park in Taito, was opened in 1882. It was the first zoo of its kind in Japan and in practice is considered the oldest zoo in the country.
At the Tokyo Zoo you will find the largest number of species from any other zoo in Japan. There are thousands of animals, of more than 400 different species. Among them you will find fascinating animals, such as Japanese roaches, royal penguins, guanacos, ostriches, rabbits, red-crowned cranes and white-tailed sea eagles.
Even if the highlight of the visit here are the pandas, find the Sumatra Tiger and the Gorilla of the West Lowlands, which are considered almost as popular.
