  • This zoo is a fun place to come and spend a few hours when you have nothing to do. The zoo isn't funded very well which you can see quickly while walking around the complex and see how poorly some of the animal enclosures are taken care of. I don't totally blame the zoo though as I understand that Okinawa isn't the greatest place for an attraction like this to make a lot of money. Their Christmas light festival is perfect example of this. The entrance prices are kind of steep, but the lights are beautiful and the laser show is on point. Sadly though they don't tell you about some of the hidden charges once you get inside, like you have to pay now to play in the snow.
  • Our family and an Okinawan family friends decided to go to Okinawa children's world zoo for both families children could enjoy. During August the zoo has special hours besides being open during the days, the zoo will open on every Saturday night until 9:00 pm. The cost is very reasonable at 100 yen per child and 500 yen for adults for the night. I was expecting a small zoo, but when I got there the zoo was actually large with many animals to see. Myself, wife and all the children really enjoyed. It was fun and very interesting zoo. I would go again because it was fun. I highly recommend going.
  • Unfortunately a lot of Japan has some pretty backward ideas about animal rights and this zoo is the perfect example of it. Monkey's, Bears, Elephants, Rhinos and more, all in far too small enclosures with extremely basic cages. There's nothing for them to do except stare out to the outside world...it's incredibly cruel and inhumane...none of these animals looked happy and I can't see why they can't build more realistic environments for these animals and promote conservation and education, rather than entertainment. Disgusting.
  • Zoo and wonder museum are always a trip worth!
  • Surprisingly larger than you think
