Maruyama Zoo, Sapporo

(3.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Stroll through the quaint Maruyama Zoo, with enclosures designed to help you get up close to more than 184 species in the park. Despite its relatively small size, you can see many animal favorites, such as bears, chimpanzees, wolves, and various big cat species at the zoo. Winter serves as the most spectacular time to visit, with thick layers of snow helping the snow leopards, penguins, and polar bears feel at home. Kids will have a ball at the petting zoos, with plenty of farm animals and even kangaroos to meet.

  • 這是一個精緻的小動物園,我的家庭玩的很開心。我們是在大雪紛飛的冬天造訪,可以感覺溫帶、寒帶、高山和極地動物都很開心活潑,例如小熊貓、狼和棕熊,真是大開眼界。意外的熱帶鳥類在溫室裡養的很好,爬蟲館也很值得參觀,箭毒蛙養的很成功。入園價不貴,孩童還免費呢! 
  • Speaking of Zoo in Hokkaido asahiyama Zoo is famous, but is larger and is in full swing. In mainland zoos so tightly packed together as well, and are made. Not to be missed, such as polar bears walking on the snow Tiger cages not glass and genuine. In birds of prey of Steller's sea eagle, white-tailed eagle, spectacular. I think the place where there are more popular.

  • I will become a asahiyama told Zoo in Hokkaido, but quite comfortable to Maruyama. Was the most relaxed and close to favorite animals have been used.

  • The kids' zoo part is wonderful! Children and adults are able to get close to harmless animals like sheep, chickens, mini horses. It's a good place for family and dating couples.
  • Nice zoo. Nicely situated on the mountain side. Cheap. One year pass incredibly cheap. Fairly long walk uphill from the closest subway station.
  • The enclosures are just too small. Very sad looking animals all round. The facilities are great, but it's too small and I feel nothing but sadness when I visit here
  • My 1st Self-drive (F&E) tour. My 1st visit to Japan. Visited Maruyama Zoo after Maruyama Park and Hokkaido Shine. This is a small zoo. There aren’t many animals in this zoo.
  • Good for 2 hours visit. The animals enclosures look tiny though
