  • i got to see the pinguin parade which i believe not every zoo has. not that big so it wont be tiring to get around the zoo, love to be here in winter!  more »
  • Went to Penguin walk from 11 am, but can't and decent manners of foreign tourists especially. When I gave up and ended up watching the other exhibits, to whom she had come back not penguins! I take a lot of best shots. We recommend that half starting ahead around the Park at 10:00 the. Note Depending on the mood of the Penguin walk ends soon!

  • Festive winter and snow is phaenkwin, but there is a parade to the beginning of April when the snow starts to melt, but there is also a parade of tired-looking phaenkwin held down then start polar bear swim. The Zoo is small and close to close the range should have watched various performances, but don't expect much because there is just enough, see.

  • funny zoo. when i visited in summer, chimpanzees were kept in an air-conditioned environment, snow leopard was kept in the hot zone - small caged jungle. fascinating flamingos, giraffes, ostrich, peacock, and lots of birds and aquatic animals. good place for family trip especially kids. try the ice cream. has some kind of eatery inside, look for free parking just outside.
  • On late October, weather is rather cold and many animal gone hibernation or not showing (such as capypara) but it's ok for me. Give 4 stars for cute penguins, red panda, sea lions and polar bears
  • I love the interaction between human and animals. We can see the animal so closely. And they saw seemed happy unlike other zoos. Especially apes and its relatives. You are so humanlike. I noticed there are social behaviour. 大好き!
  • Stopped off here for a few hours as it is near the airport. I understand it's quite a famous zoo but it seemed fairly standard to me. Lots of sleeping animals that you can't quite get a good photo of through the bars. Chimpanzees were the best thing there as you sort if get to walk right up to where they are swinging in the trees vis a glass tunnel. They have attempted to do this with other animal enclosures, such as with the bubbles in the polar bears tank which you can crawl inti to take a look if you are small enough. However, I don't think it really worked as well as with the chimps.
  • There was too much hype all over place before we went there but this place is just okay. There weren't even many animals. I think the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo has more animals than Asahiyama Zoo.
