  • Pretty nice zoo. Animals seemed to have adequate room for their exhibits. However the bears seemed to be the only exception, and many were quite thin and looked bored. Overall, good price (¥500) and we spent 2.5 hours there enjoying it so it was well worth it. Would recommend.

  • This is a great date location. It's big enough to take a few hours to stroll through, but not so big that you feel like you have to rush through it. Good variety of animals, too.

  • Similar to many city zoo in many countries. While there are variety of animals, the zoo is quite under maintenance. May be it is because of Winter time, quite a number of animal is not available. If you love zoo especially the famous Polar Bear and Red Panda, it is worth a visit. But if you have tight schedule, you can skip it.

  • Medium sized zoo Looks not exciting But there is one exciting thing. You can see the tiger in close proximity. It's very big, awesome.

  • Went from 12 pm to closing on a weekday in January. There were no crowds which was really nice. Also, the animals were all awake and came close for pictures. A great way to spend a few hours!
