    You might be wondering why there’s a giant panda dressed as a fluffy dinosaur. The reason is that Ueno Zoo has its very own giant pandas which have become a symbol of the town. And the dinosaur our station panda is dressed as is the Deinocheirus, the main showpiece of The Dinosaur Expo.

    In promotion of the museum’s exhibition, 19 restaurants and cafes at Atre Ueno are serving up their very own dinosaur-inspired meals―both meat for the carnivora and vegetarian for the herbivores―as well as desserts.

    The hostel hopes to bring in not just guests to see the museum but locals too to tie everyone to art.

    The inside is minimalist yet stylish. It caters to different needs with its room variations including rooms for 2, rooms for 4 and more.
