Kobe City Oji Zoo - Review
The 80000 square metres of the zoo are home to around 850 different animals from 150 different species. A pleasant number of the species are quite rare - giant panda, koala, golden snub-nosed monkey, Amur tiger, and snow-leopard. Polar bears, ostriches, monkeys, dolphins, orangutans, lions and penguins help round off the attractions. Kids will enjoy the petting zoo, where the rabbits and goats are quite friendly. They won't want to miss the Ferris Wheel or the mini-train ride either. The zoo theatre has interesting video exhibits on animal ecology. The elephant Suwako is the oldest in Japan. In springtime, the zoo is an excellent place to visit for the 'hanami' or the cherry blossoms.

Kobe City Oji Zoo, Kobe Reviews
1. Great place even for grown ups!! I enjoyed going around the zoo and looking at different animals. They have A LOT of animals that you can see. 2. If you’re planning to see the Panda, there’s a very long line for him/her so we decided to just look at the panda from afar. 🐼 3. There are vending machines all over the zoo so no need to worry about drinks esp during Summer. 4. There is a souvenir shop near the zoo entrance but I think it’s pricey. 5. There are discounts for students and senior citizens I think. The entrance for adult is around 500 円 if I remember it correctly.
Wonderful place to take your kids, especially for the ridiculously low cost. Great selection of animals including a Panda. Bring your own lunch is suggested as the food quality is pretty low. Japan is such a bargain to visit!
Great place to spend half the day if you have kids. Its super close to the train station and really kid friendly. I would recommend going on a week day as you can beat the crowds.
fee:600えん so many children are here. and many animals are there, also. but almost half of cages are empty.... if cherry blossoms is full, it'll be good for walk, but today is already gone...
Panda was a bit with the kids.. Overall a fun day out from Osaka. Perfect for kids.
