in travel •  7 months ago

Would you like to visit the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo with us reading this post because I share a lot of photos that you may enjoy?

I will be showing you the whole trip to the zoo from the hotel where we rode the Hilton Hotel's bus to the Shinjuku Station, and then we took the train for a 30-minute ride to the Ueno Station.

All photos are mine and taken with my Samsung phone.

Before going to the zoo, let's try this Foreign Currency Exchange machine at the hotel. We exchanged 1,000 THB into 2,870 JPY.

Then we took the bus from the hotel to the Shinjuku Station, a 5-minute ride.

Trains are very clean, no graffitis, no noise and no beggars.

We used an app to navigate and it was quite easy once in the train. The difficulty is to know what train to get in because a lot of signs are only in Japanese and there are a lot of lines.

We arrived at the Ueno Station.

After this session, we left for another area in Tokyo.

We walked 3.65 kilometers in the zoo, and after the water boat my phone was out of battery. We must have walked another 0.5 kilometers or more back to the train station.

Looked pretty reasonably priced, ticket prices into the zoo here is much more expensive and only kids under two get in free.

·

Yes, that was reasonable, even comparing to Thailand where foreigners pay more for entries in different places.

I was interested in looking at that one, seems like whenever I travel I always end up going to the local zoo. Seems zoos are attraction for everyone.

Very details post. Thanks for sharing.
