Higashiyama Zoo & Botanical Garden Reviews
紅葉ライトアップにいきました。地下鉄東山公園で降りたら、だいぶ歩くことやっと動植物園の入り口へ…星ヶ丘で降りて自動車学校の方に行ったほうが近いですよ（歩きたくない人は） 紅葉は少しなってましたが、ライトアップがきれいでお散歩に良かったです。 more »I went to light up the autumn leaves. When I got off at Higashiyama Park, I finally walked to the entrance of the Zoo and Botanical Garden. It's closer to getting off at Hoshigaoka and going to the driving school (for those who don't want to walk) The autumn leaves were a little bit, but the light-up was beautiful and it was good for a walk.
有名なゴリラのシャバーニはかっこよかったです！ 他にも大型の動物も小動物も沢山見れてとても楽しめました。展示方法も工夫されていて見どころが多く、広くて１日で回りきるのは大変です。 more »The famous gorilla Shavani was cool! I also enjoyed seeing a lot of large animals and small animals. The exhibition method is also devised, and there are a lot of attractions, and it is wide and it is difficult to go around in one day.
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.
