    most zoos in japan could use a renovation - they are mostly well behind the times in the thoughtful treatment of their animals...

    Compared to other zoos that I've been to, Ueno Zoo was more like an "animal prison" than anything else. The place needs some serious TLC.

    This picture is dark. Subjecting a polar bear to Tokyo summer weather is tantamount to animal cruelty. He should be indoors in the air conditioning.

    i like how the zookeepers have gone out of their way to provide a cheap plastic model of an iceberg as if the polar bear would be like "thanks guys... vaguely reminds me of home"

    Aside from perhaps Asahikawa Zoo, which still isn't that great by world standards, zoos in Japan are terrible. The Tennoji Zoo in Osaka has (or had) a polar bear that just paced back and forth, panting in frustration, and was missing fur on parts of his body (including head) due to stress. I feel sorry for animals like these.

    Went to Ueno Zoo and enjoyed seeing many animals I couldn't normally see, but I couldn't help to notice how many of them were obviously stressed and in pain. They just kept walking back and forth aimlessly. :(

    The Tama Zoo is fairly good, especially the lion's zone. On the other hand, I think that a number of the Ueno Zoo animals long for more open space (as many of us do in Tokyo).
