Higashiyama Zoo & Botanical Garden Reviews
Have been to this zoo several times. It’s fine in many ways, in that it has a decent array of animals, some ok food on offer and some other attractions such as the botanical gardens and some rides... more »
Very good Zoo and very cheap entrance fee for such a big zoo. Very worth it. We enjoyed ourselves very much. more »
Great place to take the kids. ❤️ just make sure you wear sneakers because you’re probably gonna walk a lot! 😅 there are some snacks options but we usually bring things from home because it’s allowed and that way you can avoid the lines and eating mostly junk food. ✌️
This is a great place to explore on your own or with your friends or family. This is especially nice for kids. The zoo/botanical gardens are easily accessed from the city of Nagoya by public transport, on foot, by car or bicycle. At this time of year, late November/ early December, the botanical gardens are a special treat. Some of the most picturesque scenes surrounded by spectacular autumn foliage can be found here: reflecting pools, antique buildings, and water wheels add to the beauty. It is well worth the visit. Come and see.
