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.

  • Tama Zoological Park is located along the mountain slope. Also on a large site so look all around, and quite a walk. Area is the Park in the shuttle is running is limited and cannot be used. Notice that where you can dine indoors lion bus No 2 in 1 lion area near the entrance or the Koala House close by, but for families with children is insect should be entered to the crowded front 11:30 3 winters are cold three times less than recommended. You can see various insects as well as large greenhouses and winter many butterflies flying in there! Spring is especially spectacular. Egocentrically room opens its doors with colorful butterflies and flowers, there are truly paradise.

  • Anyway through the mountain, made of Park slope. And I would look over at all and quite tiring, but divided into country areas, many different kinds of animals, both adults and children enjoy. Nappy changing bed and, with her baby is okay. Not any more than the entrance fee and the recommendations.

  • This zoo is great. It's a bit outside of Tokyo, but much better then the Ueno zoo, where all the animals are trapped in tiny cages. Here they have way more free space, and seem more active. (Except the snow leopards exhibit, that one was still way too small for such large animals 😞)
  • Came here on the summer holiday. The price is cheaper since i bought the set ticket for train and admission ticket. The animals are well care but when i went there some animals are not shown. Not that crowded. The zoo is spacious with lots of green. Good for family trip!
  • 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.
  • Nice zoo. Spended ~3hours. From central Tokyo it takes ~hour to the zoo.
  • Oddly the best zoo in Tokyo unless you have to see a panda. Expansive, great variety, and the only knock is the food, which is a bit of a let down.
