An hour from Tokyo, Tama Zoological Park spreads across 52 ha (129 ac), offering a close-to-nature habitat for large felines, orangutans, koalas, birds of prey, and tapirs. Take a safari to see lions grabbing chunks of meat suspended from your bus, or watch a tapir swim past a glass door. Observe orangutans on the 150 m (492 ft) long skywalk, or observe eagles flying in their huge enclosure. The park also boasts a large insectarium, providing an insight into the private life of many insects.

  • Hiking might be good at. In shoes walking up and down a lot. They sell food, but only light meals such as hot dogs. We recommend you bring your lunch. Old small animal cage, dirty. A little bit disappointing. I want to exhibit a lively little animal. I would not live long-awaited location. So now I have relaunched to look forward to.

  • Zoo free parking, Park at the private parking lot near but there is no way. Parking day 1,600 yen and, quite high. Together with the (T_T) and open admission! Briefly, over the all zones and approximately 4-5 hours. ^^; To located the zoo itself carved out a Mountain Park is a series of climbs and descents, so pretty feet. And even as adults quite tired, so look at your child around? very. There was throughout the construction for some public facilities in the garden. Lion bus I was looking forward to it. (,,;)

  • It is a Zoo located in Hino-Shi. Children's day every year so free, pretty crowded. Park was very large and had many children. Lion zone can be on the bus at the lion.

  • 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,
