Tennoji Zoo, Osaka Reviews - Write a Review

  • Lives seeing so many beautiful creatures here. Weird how some exhibits are huge and others like a small closet. Feeling sorry for those with cramped habitats.

  • Really nice zoo, great fun for kids, all the typical zoo animals plus a petting and feeding area with farm animals. Highly recommended weekend activity.

  • They have a lot of different animals. Small enclosures but that's normal for the age of the zoo. It was a fun excursion. I would definitely go again

  • Never witnessed animal cruelty like this. Kept in such small places with rubbish surroundings. The poor bear and polar bear look like they have mental problems because of it. Disgusting zoo

  • More than anything else I was impressed by the dedication of the staff and management of the zoo. It seemed as if they were determined to showcase the animals and their zoo the best they could. I've been to some terrible zoos (think south America) with cramped, dirty enclosures and disinterested staff, but there was none of that here. The zoo is obviously working within a budget however it's clean, the animals seem engaged & the staff are enthusiastic, whether it's conducting a show or entertaining kids. It should also be said also that the cost of entry is just Y500 yen - super reasonable.
