  • Child loves animals so year to come twice. Much like 7-year-old son of carnivores like seems to be seeing were not Zoo lion come from. You can see from nearby and because the lion is seen behind the glass. The lion seen through the glass from Chiba near Ueno Zoo (crowded), Zoorasia (India lion and female African lion), so Chiba Zoo slowly and observe the male African lion, so like the lion is very recommended. In the summer you can experience for children (upon request). Learn good can be a very valuable experience. Also it is recommended that goes with a change of clothes and towel bring can water a square fountain in the summer. Restaurant was clean and a decent menu. I think they made fun twist is a small Zoo, horse-riding, and the play one day.

  • During a recent family trip to Chiba (from the US) we visited the Chiba Zoo. On the day we visited it was very cold and we were one of maybe 10 visitors to the zoo. It was as if we had the entire zoo ...  more »

  • Place was really nice, although I felt like there were limited quantity of animals in compare to other zoos I visited. There was no availability of English Map. I entered first to the "Fureai" area and my kid wanted to eat but at that area variety of food is limited (hot dog and pork), inside the zoo there are more options (soba, yakitori, fried potato, others) The area close to the small lagoon is very nice with (not many people go until this place) and there are many fishes which my kid really liked.
  • It is a small Zoo with few members of each animal. It was nice weather and we liked the green environment. 700 yen for parking and 700 yen adult entrance fee. Children are free of charge
  • Lots of space; nice staff; fun for kids.

  • 2016, lion Hall's long-awaited but is basically not Zoo animals fat Panda stand wind I is still active in the fine is often running around his lovely thick wind I of I think also so that children and grandchildren enjoy the look and personality of individual differences, etc. Just around the corner, you can see dosanko large variety of horses at the Petting Zoo. Me we stroked the nose-friendly child care because that will depend the size might be surprised because not familiar with horses and small children There is room for improvement so I can't enjoy the Humboldt Penguin Penguin Hall is small for Penguin's waddle was moving and dynamic swimming is a good feeling and make a beautiful new Savannah zone, but Compared with the similar concept Zoorasia is corny too like restored so widely and so little wisdom the animals can better showcase room for improvement is 10 minutes is also a purpose with park view only sloth sloth family is very rare in the world is the sloth is anyway not found is 10 times as good I once sloth family wants to see more patience is required, Medium-sized monkeys and apes exhibit very poor atmosphere of the Showa era is not the worst against the Zoo's recent exhibition of what is the same because of budget hurts the mind monkey is placed in the narrow concrete square cage and hope to improve on a lot of gravitas is aware Park staff I is more friendly on the ecology of animals with me please feel free to talk, is great fun place to settle down, such as how to touch the animals and place me politely, we chillin at the buffet was overall very enjoyable Zoo is Petting Zoo
