Visitor Information

Tokyo Zoo Welcome Center offers information in English and Chinese

Ueno Zoo has opened Tokyo Zoo Welcome Center on January 15, 2020, which provides information about the zoo and local tourist spots in English and Chinese. Open until December 2020. The Center is located next to the General Information Center inside the zoo, just near the Main Gate.

We are sorry to announce that our daily guided tours in English and Chinese at Ueno Zoo are suspended due to the Coronavirus situation until further notice.

Hours and Days Open

Ueno Zoo opens 9:30 to 17:00 (tickets sold until 16:00) and closes every Monday (closes Tuesday if Monday is a public holiday or Tokyo Citizen's Day [Oct 1]) and December 29 through January 1.

Exceptional opening days and hours: We open irregularly on some Mondays as well as on Tuesdays even if Monday is a public holiday. In summer, the zoo closes later than 17:00 (see more details below).
