Ueno Zoo

Saturday in Tokyo was a journey up to the Ueno Zoo. This was a place our son had chosen to see on our visit to Tokyo. I’m glad we did. We had a ton of fun taking selfies and joking around.

It seemed crowded at first, but it wasn’t so bad once we were inside and wandering around. The large lineup moved quickly through the main gates. It seemed most people wanted to see the newborn pandas. We were “ok” to pass on that- as cute as it may have been. Even though I do not like crowds, the Japanese groups are almost pleasant to deal with.

The Zoo itself was pretty amazing. Lots of healthy animals not being pestered by people. Fairly large habitats as well.

Seems my son has an affection for polar bears, penguins, turtles & tortoises. He was constantly taking photos and videos of them. He now wants to use my old empty fish tank and get a turtle. We shall see about that one.

Everyone was still full of smiles at the end of the day. It proved that we had a great time at the zoo.

Sore feet and all….

      At one point the panda stood up, people came swarming over, and the panda turned around and lay down again. This time with his backside to the crowd. Lots of laughing occurred!
