Take the family to Himeji City Zoo to observe a variety of exotic animals, including lions, penguins, giraffes, and elephants. You'll also have the opportunity to meet some more domesticated creatures at the animal encounters section, including rabbits, sheep, pigs, and guinea pigs. You can touch and pet the domesticated and farm animals, although only for two short sessions each day. Unfortunately, the zoo has no dedicated souvenir or gift shop, but bring along some change in case you'd like something from the onsite vending machines.

Himeji City Zoo Reviews
姫路城の外周を散策している時に途中、当所に辿り着きました。入園料は大人\200、子供\30、５歳未満無料と廉価ですが、園の外装を見ると、それ程、動物園として自立しているようには感じられませんでした。地元の子供用としてはそれなりの意味はあるのかもしれません。ただ、なんで姫路城の横に動物園があるのか、歴史的な背景は知りませんが、観光客としては少し違和感を感じます。 more »When I was strolling around the perimeter of Himeji Castle, I arrived at the place on the way. Admission is free for adults \200, children \30, and children under 5 years old, but when you look at the exterior of the park, it didn't feel as if it was as independent as a zoo. It might mean a lot for a local child. However, I don't know why there is a zoo next to Himeji Castle, but as a tourist, I feel a little uncomfortable.
動物のことが好きになる動物園です。動物ごとに掲示されている説明書きが、読み切れる長さで必要な情報量がつまっているところが飼育員さんの愛を感じます。いわゆる動物臭いというところもなく、オススメです！ カンガルーが並んで寝てたり、白くまが泳ぎを披露してくれたり、ゾウが踊っているように見えたり、楽しませてもらいました。驚いたのは2頭いたロバの1頭が、1991年生まれと説明があった気がするのですが、そうす... more »It is a zoo where you will love animals. I feel the love of the keeper stumbled on the information required by the length of the animal. There is not a so-called animal smell, and it is recommended! Kangaroos slept side by side, white bears showed off their swimming, elephants seemed to be dancing, and they were entertained. What surprised me was that one of the two donkeys was born in 1991 and explained that they were 28 years old!? If I have a chance to go to Himeji again, I would love to stop by!
Wish I'd read reviews, just happened upon this nightmare while wandering through the castle grounds. Absolutely repulsive place. The animals are extremely distressed and no one is batting an eyelid. I've been getting by fine with the little bit of Japanese I know but the staff don't seem to process "refund" in any language. Disgusted I funded this place in anyway with my entry fee. Shut it down NOW.
worst zoo i went ever to...some animals have nearly NO space,animals whose need water have too less and everything looks old and dirty...the animals look very sick and nearly to their end...what the hell? entry is cheap(200yen) but please dont visit it,its not worth and shouldnt be supported! just go straight to the castle and skip this please
