It is located in the “Takenodai Square” at the center of the park.There is also a terrace seat with 69 seats here.There is a large window inside the store, and it is designed so that you can see the nature.
The Ueno zoo was opened in March 1882 and is the first zoo in Japan.The official name is “Ueno Zoo in Tokyo” and it is located in the Ueno Onshi Park.The image of panda is strong in the Ueno Zoo, but the appeal is not just the panda.It is one of the largest zoos in Japan and boasts over 500 types of exhibits.And the number of visitors is the largest in Japan.
The park is wide and divided into’ Higashien’ and’ Saionji’, and the monorail can be moved by monorail during the period.There are 3 entrances, the front gate, Benten-mon and Ikenohata gate, and it is efficient to enter the entrance from the closest entrance to the animals.The main entrance is the main entrance, and the number of vending machines is the largest, and many people make a row in front of the gate.
By the way, if you want a giant panda, let’s enter from this entrance.”Shanshan” was born in June, 2017, and it is very popular.At first, it was arranged to distribute numbered tickets, but now you can see them in a row.It takes about 40 to 70 minutes on weekdays, and it’s about 150 minutes on holidays.The target is right after the opening.For those who want to reduce the waiting time, it is recommended to wait in front of the front door so that they can enter the hall at the same time as the open.
The shoebill is so popular that he can’t lose to the giant panda.It is a very rare animal, and it is difficult to see in other places in Japan.There are 4 animals in the Ueno zoo.It is famous as a “moving bird”, but its visual impact is also impressive, so it is sure to look up.
The popularity of shoebill has been increasing over the past few years, and the number of goods seems to have increased.Please get shoebill goods as a memorial for the kindergarten.
National Museum of Nature and Science
It’s the only national museum in Japan.This facility is also located in the Ueno Onshi Park.It is divided into 2 buildings, the Japanese pavilion and the Earth Pavilion, and houses a collection of more than 4,000,000 pieces of valuable collection.
The main attraction is the dinosaur floor on the first floor of the Earth Pavilion.It is sure to be overwhelmed by a large group of fossils that are lined up in the full exhibition room.It is only a major dinosaur such as Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, and Stegosaurus, so you can enjoy it without being a dinosaur nerd.
In addition, there are a wide range of materials, including the “Moon stones” of Hachiko Hachiko, “Moon Stones of the moon,” “The Moon stones of the moon,” and the full-scale reconstruction model of the asteroid probe “Hayabusa” and the “Hayabusa” model of the asteroid probe “Hayabusa” on display in the exhibition, and it is also exhibited in various materials such as “the moon stones of the moon,” the Apollo No. 11 and No. 17, “and the” Hayabusa “model of the asteroid probe” Hayabusa “is displayed on the other side of the museum, and it is also displayed in various materials such as” the moon stones of the moon “and the” Hayabusa “of the” 0 type. “.There are also female mummies in the Edo period.There are many things that you can only see here, and there will be any discoveries if you go there.

National Museum of Western Art
The “National Museum of Western Art” is located in a good location, a 1 minute walk from Ueno Station.There is a collection of “Matsukata Collections” collected by Matsukata Kojiro, a businessman, and many masterpieces such as “Thinking Image” and “Water Lilies” from Monet are exhibited in a permanent exhibition.

The main attraction of the “National Museum of Western Art” is the reasonable admission fee.The famous works such as Picasso and Monet’s paintings and the sculptures of Rodin are full of attention, but you can enjoy the famous paintings with the general 500 yen and one coin.I am surprised to hear that the shooting is free.
There is a permanent exhibition of the work of the master who has been concerned about the name at once, and you can see it slowly at any time.Even those who have never been to the art museum will be able to enjoy the art, so please try to visit them once again.

This was built by Kunio Maekawa, an architect who is representative of Japanese architecture after the war.It is carefully made in various places, so please look at the appearance before entering the building.
Also, there are 12 sculptures on the site, so please don’t miss this one.In particular, the stainless sphere, which was exhibited in front of the front gate, is a symbolic symbol of “Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum,” but this is also a masterpiece of sculpture.There are small and large holes in the top and bottom, and you can see the sky by looking from the bottom.
It is usually open until 5 30, but it is open until the night during the special exhibition, and it is lit up.The contrast of red, blue, yellow and green is beautiful, and the color you can see is different depending on the standing position, so you can try it once.
“Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum” is characterized by a relatively short span of exhibitions held in Japan and abroad where various exhibitions are held in a relatively short span of time.It’s natural to be immersed in a lot of art, but it’s very pleasant to walk around Ueno Park, so try to visit it.Some people who were not interested in the art museum so far may find a new discovery.
Former Iwasaki Residence
The “Old Iwasaki Residence” is also designated as an important cultural property of the country.It was built as a residence of Hisaya Iwasaki, who was founded by Mitsubishi in 1896 (1896).There are 3 existing buildings, Western building, Japanese pavilion, and game-room (billiard room).

Ueno Great Buddha
The Ueno Great Buddha was built in 1631.At the time of construction, the height was about 6 meters, and until 100 years ago, it was enshrined in Ueno.
After that, he suffered a number of disasters and was repaired every time, but he only left the face.Currently, the face is buried in a wall and placed as a relief.The figure has a great impact.
It is also known as the “Passing Great Buddha” that has been overcome by the fact that it has overcome many disasters.In recent years, it has been introduced by media, so it seems popular as a power spot to pray for passing.
Ema is very unique, and the face of Buddha’s face is painted on the whole Ema.Also, the charm to pray for passing is popular, and it is made of bronze like the Great Buddha, and it has a motif as a motif.
The initial fee for Ema and Omaomai is said to be used for the reconstruction of the Great Buddha.If it is rebuilt, it will become a new sightseeing spot in Ueno.

The special “Anmitsu” is an exquisite item that gives you a sense of nostalgia.
As if it was a sweet bean paste, azuki beans from Tokachi in Hokkaido are used.Honey is refreshing, and Kanten is characterized by its moderate hardness and smooth texture.The Gyuhi Gyuhi and the slightly sweet mikan are nice accents.Orthodox and Anmitsu!Did I say that?
