Shitamachi Skating Rink

Shitamachi Skating Rink, now on at “Okachimachi Panda Square,” in front of JR Okachimachi Station, invites visitors to arrive empty handed and ice skate in a setting celebrating the birth of Xiang Xiang, the popular giant panda cub at Ueno Zoo. Panda motifs include an enormous object in the center of the rink, and a stuffed toy replicating Xiang Xiang’s exact weight, size, and coat of fur (as of November 30, 2017) for visitors to hold and take pictures with. For the safety of children, there is even a panda helmet and illustrated panda gloves. The rink is open until February 28, 2018, offering the chance to ice skate in a setting unique to the Ueno–Okachimachi area.
