  • Very bid and children friendly. Nice to stroll through although make sure you have enough time because it is quite big. The Insect house was my personal favorite. 
  • The wide road was worth it. During the week, the plant was not as full and you could enjoy the extensive grounds alone. If you want to see everything on foot, putting back a few worthwhile kilometers. The enclosures are often pleasantly large. The Asian elephant must however still waiting for their new home, whose completion will take yet some time, and are kept on very small, not animal-friendly surface (so far one may speak in zoos at all of 'art fair'). The plant for the lion, which can be seen from three sides is very large. The possibility of using a bus through closing consisted at the time of our visit fortunately not (imposition for the animals). The Tasmanian Devil, seldom in zoos are a highlight. There is a bus and a train travelling through the Zoo, many resting places and food options.

  • I visited for the first time. Went to the Ueno Zoo and it is this dare went in the winter. Result I had gone much sooner, as in title. A larger set of fields. See koalas, were happy kids. A Zoo is the Zoo's Insect House. Especially Butterfly field, a lot of butterflies flew in the winter greenhouse. Doing so without checking, free for children was felt by them. We recommend when there are half amount of time with their children.

  • Trust me ive been to MANY zoos. This is nothing special. Go to ueno zoo instead that place was amazing compared to this. It's all uphill walking, not that many animals and omg the spiders. You ain't seen so many spiders. I'm not talking about exhibits. Just in every mf tree and grass. I was so creeped out and felt like they where crawling all over me.
  • This is one of the largest zoological gardens in the extended metropolitan area. The premises are quite wide, and most of the animal areas are designed in a more natural and spacious manner than at the older zoos in Inokashira and Ueno. There is a fair bit of steep slopes, so getting around on foot can be somewhat exhausting, but there are free bus shuttle rides throughout the park. If you like zoos, this is a recommended visit, especially for families with children.
  • Took a while to get there from Kamata - google maps said 7 stops going there (was 25 stops). Yeah.... no. 7 stops on the Monorail maybe. But I digress. I was hesitant at first due to hearing about appaling conditions of other Zoos. There are a few animals which this Zoo shouldn't.... have as it isn't for preservation - more just showing off the animal. But the enclosures for the most part seem big enough. There's a few that I think could do with some more space (such as the Wild Pig - who has a tiny enclosure only twice his size). Overall the Zoo is extremely cheap, and would of happily paid more to help improve the life for the existing residents. I would ecommend this Zoo to people Especially when compared to the condition of some tinier Zoos such as Ueno.
  • The largest zoo in the Tokyo area! Great for a full day of animal spotting... Make sure you wear comfortable shoes!
  • This place is the big brother equivalent of Ueno Zoo, and unlike the compact Ueno Zoo, you'd have to travel far and apart to see a single animal in this zoo, which is a very good thing for the animals.
