  • This is one of the best zoo I have visited so far. Loved the layout and the architecture! The way it allows us to get close to the animals without compromising on safety is certainly commendable. Only...  more »
  • Munch and many times and above all no asahiyama Zoo's cage, or low in photos without worrying about solutions, you can shoot pictures wait less. Because of quite large, so women will heal, and pretty much a Yes motion carried in the Streetwise instrumentation that we recommend

  • The zoo is really big which took us half a day to explore 90% of all the animals, mostly never seen it real before. The design and layout of the zoo are interesting, and the enclosure with the wildlife is significantly near which we were able to experience n seen it up close... There were many local species too. Although it was raining that time (early June) and weather was below 10degree, it still gave us a wonderful and interesting experience. Here are jus some of the pictures taken.
  • Animals are lively, the enclosures are big and nicely designed. First time seeing some animal, especially this close. Very good 3-1/2 hours, and they provide trolley and wheelchairs. Excellent accessibility for wheelchairs. Highly recommend, fun for all ages. Also have multiple food stall or vending machine, price sensible.
  • Love the zoo. Could really get quite close to the of the big cats as they seemed to like walking at the edge of the cages. There is a good variety of animals. There are tigers, leopards, red pandas, deers, polar bears, seals, penguins. There is a large cage with many peacocks and they were active and open their tails in full glory. There's also a children's area with small animals. Go at the right timing you get to hold and pet rabbits and guinea pigs.
  • This is a gorgeous place in winter. The tigers seem attached to the keeper. The penguin walk is the highlight. Animals look healthy and handsome.
  • Great zoo. Lots of opportunities to see animals. Audio guide available in many languages. Staff very friendly.
