  • The large greenhouse garden insects and butterflies and grasshoppers. Corns large butterflies or little butterflies, and high/low difference in the greenhouse. It is found in the Mainland, Okinawa is mainly a butterfly, so often. Greenhouse, so of course enjoy even on rainy days. Greenhouse you can see many insects are bred in case there are other specimens.

  • Mountain Zoological Park, yamasaka is tight. We forget tired in that is what "footprint". Visit passage road there are footprints, make it chasing children and low can be observed. Goes looking for it though because it is a large park, wide range of animals and animal "quickly and time" to go to these facilities. Drinking beer in the room before the Koala shop, let's go to the next tour! Lion bus not operating for a while in the renovation. Let's just hope the early return. Anyway, it's fun Park!

  • We visited here and had a lovely day. All of the animals are pretty close and active and don't seem too depressed to be in a zoo. The park itself is nice and hilly and laid out in a beautiful area. Th...  more »

  • 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.
