Must see · Zoo · Zoo / Aquarium
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.

  • If you’re visiting from Tokyo, leave early. It takes a while to get there. There was a bit of construction going on at the lion exhibit. Bring enough water and snacks. The tigers were playful.  more »
  • Peaceful zoo to relax, kids are interested all sightseeing. Free bus around the zoo provided which is so convenient.  more »
  • What might be even more spectacular than the animals here was the landscaping! Even for Japanese standards the layout of the zoo and integration of the animal enclosures throughout the, mountains? Hills?, was exemplary.
  • Ticket fee is cheap. The zoo is spacious. Good for family. Restaurant is not bad but had to queue for 30+m to get served when crowded.
  • I loved this zoo very good for most of the exhibits. Large and relatively well kept. I would say it could use some new exhibits.
  • Great place to visit for kids. Just next to the train station. Parking options are available in the area. parking prices change with proximity. You can rent a babycar for 500yen in the zoo. They also have a shuttle bus service within the zoo but get ready for hills and a whole day of walking around. Food is available in the Zoo.
  • Halg the zoo is closed for renovations. Will definitely return to see the new enclosure
