Chiba Zoological Park Reviews & Ratings

  • Compared to zoos in Japan and other counties, Chiba zoo might seem a little small and not well kept. However, the entry price has been raised recently and there seems to be some renovation and redevelopment going on, which I hope will lead to much needed improvement for the animals.

  • Very large park. We walked for 4 hours and did not see everything. The animals appear well kept and the zookeepers will feed the animals and give talks about them while you can take pictures and learn about the animals

  • This is a good family day out. It's also cheap as adults are 700 yen and children (including up to high school students) are free. It's easy to get there by public transit - the Chiba City Monorail stops right there - and there is plenty of parking. There are a lot of older exhibits that are too small for the animals and the poor elephant isn't doing well, but they've been improving sections gradually over the last few years with more modern enclosers and more domestic animals. There are several petting zoo type exhibits that give children a chance to interact (and clean up after) sheep, goats and other farm animals. Some of these are free, but others cost money. In addition to looking at animals in cages, there are a variety of educational events and non-zoo activities such as bouncy castles, art projects, small children's rides and several other things. Two recommendations. First go early. Many of the animal are much more active in the morning. It's the best time to see the lions and many of the other large animals awake. In adition to that, bring a picnic lunch. They have a few food options, but they're expensive and not great. However there is a lot of space to set up and eat a nice picnic.

  • It was nice that there very few people and it allowed us to see the animals and breathe a little. The zoo itself feels a little run down.

  • Very enjoyable visit, with many interesting animals and a children's zoo. Conveniently accessed via the monorail. Note that it is not open on Wednesdays.
