  • Tama Zoo has over 300 species of animals. Truly an enjoyable zoo to go to because the animals look very well cared for. We went in spring and it was amazing how many baby animals we saw (a sign that t...  more »
  • 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 »
  • There was a lot of walking BUT it was worth! The best part was the lion bus! You pay a few hundred yen to ride a bus into a lion closure. There are little hooks on the bus that they put meat onto. It ...  more »

  • At under ¥500 admission, the train ride over cost more than the attraction and was quite affordable. My wife and I brought our infant son in his stroller and while there are a lot of accessible areas for wheels and even a zoo bus that stops in different places at intervals, it's worth mentioning that this zoo was built on a series of hills in the countryside and has a lot of steep slopes so be prepared for a bit of a hike at times if you want to see everything. At the time of this writing (Jun '17), the lion area is currently under construction and not in the best of shape, but the cheetahs have just had cubs so if you're reading this close to its publish date, it's worth checking out.
  • We went there during the Golden Week so the admission was free. The places were animals kept were designed in a way that it looked like they were in their own natural habitat, except for the koala though. The Zoo is divided into 3parts: Asiatic Garden, African and Australian Garden, and the Insectarium. We werent able to experience the Lion encounter but we still had fun with the other animals that we saw.
  • Although quite a ride form Central Tokyo, Tama zoo is a good place to visit if you are with kids. It is an interesting experience because you can get a close view of many of the animals. The zoo is huge, so do expect to be tired afterwards. In any case, worth the daily trip.
  • Inexpensive admission. Even a greater bargain if you get the 1 day monorail and zoo pass, which includes a zoo ticket and unlimited monorail rides for the entire day . Physical conditions of the animals show that they are well taken care of. A fun place both adults and kids will enjoy. 動物園の入場料と1日モノレール乗車券を含む¥1000のモノレールセット券はお買い得です。
  • Zoo is sorrounded by natural.from tokyo to tama area take time 1 and half hours by tamaexpress train.elephant's, tiger, lions, zebra, ...etc,for picnic also best place and enjoy,
