Kobe City Oji Zoo, Kobe
(4.1/5 based on 460 reviews on the web)
Part of the "Animal Supporter System," Kobe City Oji Zoo houses around 850 animals from a total of 150 different species. The 80,000 sq m (861,100 sq ft) zoo contains many animals rarely in the wild, such as giant panda, golden snub-nosed monkey, Amur tiger, and snow leopard. Children have a special section where they can pet rabbits and goats, and the Fierce Animal Coliseum lets you observe big cats through thick glass windows. After examining the animal life, head over to the recreational area to ride the Ferris wheel and see an authentic D51 steam locomotive. A visit to Kobe City Oji Zoo represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kobe vacation route planner to plot your vacation.

  • In nearby can see elephants and giraffes will be subjective, but I think. Cage firmly around your not like.  Maybe that's why thoroughly enjoyed the breath and gesture. There was some intact after a dead mountain gorilla, polar bear aged can't dive, lonely scene.

  • Is the Zoo would be the greatest child. I'm enjoy 10 minutes and buses leave from Sannomiya, you can see lots of animals. Vehicles play a little but I can be.
