(4/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • Families with children are good so far I think. You can meet many animals including elephants, flamingos, Panda. I would go by bus and Hankyu Sannomiya, useful.

  • It's a reasonable entrance fee for the facilities in Kobe City. Very spacious furnished with the unrestricted fun children's staff. Great location near the station of the Hankyu, enjoy soon I think.

  • To this day became the day up rain in 8 a.m. morning even though there was heavy rain and flood warning temperature up another hot day. 10 a.m. ago arriving. Me next week in the 51-year-old will be thrilled. Into the garden, leave your luggage in the lockers (small 200 yen). Imagine the day filled with excursions kindergarten and elementary school children. But the impression is crowded between animals and animals quite lightningrod is a very large site, so no. I came to the Zoo this "Panda" and "Koala" is seen at the same time was sure on the net. You're actually more I was surprised over the glass, not the more likely. You could see the koalas eat delicious Panda sat on the feeding grounds these days, bamboo crunching on the eating and eucalyptus. Here sees any animal found only saying the zoo animals, mostly lay sleeping, but I'm moving well. It was a wonderful Zoo.
