  • Not a big not small, clean, akkuratnen′kij as a playground, with a clear route. The traditional Zoo, where animals are not particularly visible in their not very spacious cages, especially if slaughtered sleep. Especially exotic animals no, but the full spectrum from elephants to primates will find. There is a Petting Zoo with sheep, and buffet lunch, without frills. An extensive children's program for local children. For walking with the child fits, adults are unlikely to be able to find kinda to yourself

  • Clean, comfortable with animals. Friendly staff showed ingenuity full and powerful Tiger or Panda cute children. In a beautiful, small Zoo keepers who have important animals, also is in very good condition. But it was hot. I thought I should avoid the summer.

  • This evening I went to the Zoo opened. Opportunity this time because there are several not so the day came that I had left for the children. Kyoto Municipal Zoo being renewed, and was easier to use, but also the atmosphere of the night. Hot time for the mist but a little cool, am so thankful. Easier to walk in the garden, even small children as I think. Guests can enjoy a giraffe looking very from the walkway, so. Though commune is popular for children. You may think better and achieve more as the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama, but hard on the space. Because this was a night awake as a lion, there was powerful. Guides are clean. Good day but opening night of any opportunity to revisit.

  • If I could give zero stars, I would. あなたは恥ずかしいと思うべきです。The conditions at this zoo are appalling. Tiny enclosures, no shade for the animals, monkeys with purely artificial/concrete surroundings etc. it's depressing. You spend money dressing up the walkways and cafes, yet it seems as though no money goes towards providing decent living conditions for the animals. No wonder tickets are so cheap. I didn't expect to find something so terrible in Japan.
  • If I could give zero i would. Why can not provide a good environment to animals? After visiting the zoo I just feel so upset and disappointing! Please be kind to the animals!
  • funny it looks like a school from the outside
  • Bigger than I thought it would be
  • Kyoto's largest Zoo. Scale is not large, old-style Zoo, animals in General is seen. Touch small animals such as rabbit by the time workshops are held. Many of the children living in Kyoto became the Zoo will carry several times.
