Japan: Giant Panda at Ueno Zoo

Last Thursday I got two postcards: one from Japan and one from Belarus.

The card from Japan shows a Giant Panda from the Ueno Zoo. The Ueno Zoo is a zoo in Tokyo. It was opened in 1882 and is thus the oldest zoo in Japan. Since 1972 it is home to Giant Pandas. The current pair, Līlī (male) and Shinshin (female), arrived in the zoo in 2011.


Stamp:
UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (issued 03-13-2015)
with a special postmark of the Hogsmeade Owl Post


Last Thursday I also got a cover with the Hogsmeade postmark.


Thank You very much Pei!
