Tokyo Ueno Zoo

We visited the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo today and I was pleasantly surprised.
Asian zoos don't have the best reputation so I wasn't sure how much space the animals would have, especially in the capital of Japan but it was pretty good.

They had Giant Panda, Gorillas, Asian Elephants and Polar Bears.
The exhibit the female elephants were in wasn't massive but the bull was in a much bigger area so I guess they rotate and it seemed to have lots of things to keep them amused. The keepers were in with the elephants, sweeping them down with a broom doing health checks, weighing them all individually on a weighbridge and hosing them all down as it was 34oC.
