Have you ever seen giant pandas?
2 giant pandas arrived at Narita airport on a flight called 'FLY! PANDA' from Shanghai on the night of February 21 and the giant pandas were taken to Tokyo's Ueno Zoo.

They are rented pandas from China and the rental fee is about 79 million yen (about 950 thousand dollars) per year. The rental period is 10 years.
This is the first time for giant pandas to be seen at the Ueno Zoo since the death of male panda Ling Ling in 2008.
The giant pandas will be shown to the public in Ueno Zoo around the end of March.
‘Panda yaki’ is available at Sakuragi-tei near the main gate of Ueno Zoo
Ueno Ameyayokocho called ‘Ameyoko’ welcomes the pandas by hanging the banners out.
Pandas are everywhere in Ueno … even at construction site.
