  • definitely should be visited as it is located in ueno Park and then into Central and touristy. There are giant pandas that are stunning and there are hardly any other zoo! then, as in many zoo animals are not at the maximum of happiness ... the Tiger is lean lean, the gorillas were cold and asleep, I mean beautiful animals but kinda ' sad '

  • Best value for money. So many animals to see. well worth a look. great family holiday spot. Thanks Japan
  • It's not as if the zoo is poorly kept, dirty or ugly but the animal enclosures are small by top zoo standards. Some animals looked awfully sad and bored. Had mixed feelings when leaving. They should triple admission price to upgrade all animal enclosures! Happy to pay much more for animals happiness.
  • Loved it here. Big zoo with plenty to do and see. Well spread out and plenty of walking to do. Plus show your passport at the entrance to receive a discount
  • Nice zoo, good variety of animals. Most enclosures are pretty good, though some animals appear to show some stereotypical behaviour.
  • Crowded on weekends and public holidays. Pretty big zoo, worth visiting once especially if you have kids. You can see Lord harambe here.
