From Kyodo News

Tokyo’s Ueno Zoo will postpone the public display of a pair of giant pandas leased from China, initially scheduled on March 22, as it will be closed from Thursday for the time being following the devastating earthquake, the metropolitan government said Wednesday.

The Tokyo government said it will also close the Tama Zoological Park, Tokyo Sea Life Park and Inokashira Park Zoo, as it aims to ensure visitors’ safety from the continuing aftershocks and to save electricity.

Power supply shortages are expected for the time being due to the quake-triggered accidents at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant.
