Ueno Zoo is the oldest zoo in Japan and one of Ueno's greatest attractions. The zoo began as a collection of wild animals affiliated with the National Museum of Natural History and first opened as a public zoo on March 20, 1882. The zoo has expanded significantly since then and is now home to over 3,000 animals and 400 different species. The attraction of Ueno Zoo, however, is the pandas, also because they have successfully reproduced. Ueno Zoo is actively committed to the conservation of wild animals.
