The zoo is nothing special compared to some of the others you find in Japan, but it's good enough for the city. The fifteen hectares house about 117 species of animals, covered in about 500 specimens. Kids especially love the central tower in the zoo, which has an educational exhibit, and more important, a slide at the top with a fun drop to the bottom. The main animals are flamingos, timber wolves, giraffes, macaques, the Ural owl, caribou, marmoset, capuchin, prairie dog, beaver, and a bactrian camel. Check out the steam engine in Omoriyamapark. There is a lawn picnic area. It's clean and engaging and fun for the family.
