The city of Ueno is full of pandas blessing the birth of "Shan Shan (Kaka)"
It was full of panda before that, but due to the birth of a baby panda "Shan Shan", panda was overflowing in Ueno. The unprecedented panda fever. To see Shan Shan in Ueno Zoo, you need a ticket, but you could see it if Lee Lee of a father Panda without disclosure restriction. It was the first panda in my life.
Hello,Takuya SAITO who did a round around the world by bicycle @ CharridermanBut, only Panda was surprised. In Chengdu (Chendu) of Sichuan Province, China there are facilities that can fully enjoy pandas, but unfortunately they have not visited. That's why I'm just recruiting my longing for Panda. But as early as the New Year, my panda fever is filled. I spent a whole day full of pandas.
◆ Town of Panda
October 2016, after the tripI gave my first lectureThere was Okachimachi next to Ueno. After that I stayed for several months in addition to the share house in Komagome, Minami senju near Ueno, so I often visited Ueno. When you walk through the streets you will see something striking of panda. Ueno was a city that loves panda. The panda I found at that time is here.

And, from December 2016 to March 2017 Panda Pepper had been installed at Ueno station of Tokyo Metro Ginza Line.Also at the end of 2017 tweetAlthough it became a topic, panda pepper is not installed after the birth of Shan Shan. The current Ginza Line Ueno station has been refurbished and the atmosphere has changed a lot.
Here is an article where I visited Panda Pepper in December 2016.

In order to unravel the history of Ueno and the panda, in 1972, "Kang Kang (Kang Kang)" "Lan Lan (Ran Lan)" came from China to mark the normalization of Japan-China diplomatic relations. As soon as it is released at the Ueno Zoo, Japanese get absorbed in the panda. Let's see the adorable appearance at first sight On the first day of public release a long line was made. Even so, it was only 50 seconds that I could see it for 2 hours. With such a panda boom, the panda becomes a symbol of Ueno.
The panda's baby will be released at Ueno Zoo in the same way as this time, the third example after "Tong Tong (Children)" in 1986, "Yu Yu (Yuyuu)" in 1988. "Lee Lei (power)" and "Shinshin (true truth)" who is the mother and father of "Shan Shan (Kaka)" are the baby given in 2012, but it was only 7 days to live.

Since baby panda Shangshan is born there, it is easier to imagine that it will be crowded with pandas, I thought I had to do someday.Chicken for Guatemala,If it is Thailand Elephant,If you are Taiwanese bear, Japan alsoKumamoto is KumamonsoMikan in EhimeAnd, I have been looking for to find the domestic and foreign matter without theme. If so, Ueno would be a panda. The traveler's blood made a fuss. No longer my life work. And travel around to walk the panda determined Ueno of the city, will be such a result. It was a visit on January 2nd soon after the opening of the New Year.

◆ Ueno Zoo
I was looking for the appearance of Panda in Ueno Park as well, but I was surprised that the Ueno Zoo, which I thought was a holiday because it was a New Year 's holiday, is open. As for anything, if there was flower in the article where there was panda, it came smoothly, but looked inside. Personally I wanted to see panda, so it was a good opportunity. I will walk silently alone in the garden with love who walk with families and shoulders lining hands of small children.
To see the baby panda's "Shan Shan (Kaka)" and the mother panda's "Shinshin (true genuine)", an observation ticket was necessary. Since it is a lottery system, you have to apply by internet or phone in advance. A narrow gate that only the elected person can view. One father Panda's "Lee Lei (power)" can be seen by anyone. A lot of people stood in front of the fence and watched Lilily 's all - in - one action.
But, I first jumped in this form that seemed to hear the voice "Oh, Dado". I thought where the old man is.
Panda is a stupid panda. Full body weakness as if it could fly to the soul. I'm pretty relaxed. But after a while it starts to move as if I remembered something. Move hands and feet like a dexterity like a person, descend the ladder to the ground. From there, when I went around the release place I was walking around. However, it does not readily come to the front where customers are. It was all around turning backwards.
Sometimes it will come to the front. That time is a shutter chance.

· Animals other than panda

Because it is too full, it reacts to the two colors of white and black and it searches for the face of panda. When everyone visits Ueno, please try looking for a panda in the city. Also recommend Ueno Zoo where you can meet real pandas.
