(4/5 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.

  • I went on a weekday morning. Nursery, kindergarten, and elementary school are often was as expected, but many were elderly people. I'm here is free for under junior high students, but people in the prefecture were free. I came here was about 20 years Buri is an old man who pretty well coming see gave description of the animal people. I thought surely healed by animals as a movement, and very good. It was too, but I don't know much about eating your lunch in the room. Nursery school children coming on a field trip, kindergarten, and elementary school kids are so cute.
