    Ueno Zoo, formally known as Ueno Zoological Gardens, opened in 1882 making it Japan’s first and oldest zoo. Ueno Zoo covers an area of 14.3 hectares of land that was originally part of the Imperial Estate, but was bestowed to the Japanese people (Tokyo Metropolitan Government) in 1924 on the day of the then prince Hirohito’s wedding. Ueno Zoo is still the most popular zoo in Tokyo. The Ueno Zoo collection includes Giant Pandas and Gorillas with approximately 2,600 animals of 464 species. In addition to the modern enclosures there is a petting zoo section, a five storied pagoda and a traditional tea house. Ueno Zoo is located within Ueno Park.
