  • Really huge place and lots of places to see animals if all sorts— great for all ages. Better on nicer days when it’s clear weather conditions to walk around and enjoy the unique spaces. Fun for the entire family and tourists alike!
  • It is Japan's oldest zoo. It has a lot of animals from all over the world. I was able to see a giant panda here. There are other important animals in this zoo. The zoo is big and managed well. It is very different from zoos in other countries. A fun place to visit with kids.
