You can enjoy 2 types of zoo (water and land) at one entrance fee of only JPY400 per-adult. Surprisingly there are quite a number of animals in the zoo that are originally from Japan. Combined with a visit to the Inokashira Park, this is going...More

OK I have not been since say one year. But you were filling that there was no money left for the animals. Go to Ueno for romance...But it was possible to play with hamsters.

We first visited the guinea pig petting area. From there one can go and see penguins, goats, deer, monkeys and other animals. There is a huge area where the squirrels scuttle freely and close to you. There are also places with exotic birds.

Not much of a zoo where you could expect the safari type of animals, but a place which is great just to spend the afternoon in. The legendary elephant "Hanako" is the oldest elephant kept in a zoo in Japan (68years old in human years!)...More

No big animals here except elephant. But good place to spend few hours with small kids. Also has some basic rides and a small sculpture museum.

We wanted to go to this zoo to see squirrels, but we saw so much more! Lovely little zoo with a number of different species which we really enjoyed.

It is a small zoo, and it is a very cheap zoo, especially if you're a foreigner and bring your passport. But a number of the enclosures are dated, and have nothing in them to keep the animals interested. The elephant enclosure is far too...More

You are so right!! The least the zoo could do is to put down layers of straw inside and outside for a little more foot comfort. Also a couple large potted trees along her walkway. She probably has never seen or smelled a... More
