The viewers will no longer worry about their chance to meet the panda cub either as the zoo will replace the current competitive lottery draw to "first come, first served" policy, making the tickets more accessible.

The zoo will begin distributing tickets from 9:30 am starting from Feb 1 near its main entrance.

Under the current system, panda lovers need to apply online or by telephone and depend on luck to catch a glimpse of the panda celebrity. With the number of applicants surging, getting a spot has been difficult.

The Ueno Zoo is also considering building a new house by 2020 for Xiang Xiang and her family in the wake of the panda mania.

Xiang Xiang turned 7–month-old on Jan 12.
