  • We visited Zoo purposes. First of all, the high entrance fee! And animals are exhibited around doubt and, in a cage too messy, was disappointed. Zoo recently moving into exhibition lot is in the pretty disappointing thing is. I want more luck.

  • I thought I wonder if crowded on Sundays, is sparsely populated, and walkable. Get a free pass, Kingfisher wood coaster Regina and the newer coasters rode many times. Almost no latency. More couples and young group because another path after 3 pm and goes on sale, waited for about 10 minutes. Immediately put any attraction because it wasn't crowded at all is very good. Big brother the mini train near the Ferris wheel has an interesting and Nice.

  • Had to exhibit animals in breeding and Showa era sense of feel is speaking only zoo, and also look at close as possible to the animals that can be helpful. Can't see room facilities, Park bus 300 yen, too much service in good is a shame.

  • A bit pricey to enter and parking but lots of animals the white tigers are the main draw. It also has a decent amusement park with Regina. It's a large wooden roller coaster. In summer there is an outdoor pool complex too. I went for the winter lights. It was nice and not very crowded even on a Saturday evening.
  • I was expecting it to be bigger than it is, but thankfully it is a manageable size. It has a lot of animals that you can't see in the more popular and reasonably priced Saitama Children's zoo such as elephants, monkeys and white tigers. It is most famous for its white tigers. It is home to the first ever firefly house.
  • Not busy the day after the annual free entry day. Good assortment of animals to keep kids entertained. Not a great lot of food options.
  • Very pleasantly surprised. Much better than the Ueno Zoo. The sea lion show was amazing. It is a lot of walking to get to the zoo area if coming from the train station, so maybe a better option to take a taxi to the West entrance.
  • Super big place for a zoo but they do havethe white tiger there
