  • Adults 600 yen, children watch so animals free of charge is. Last time I really enjoyed very much white OWL unique neck movement, but this time the service spirit of the sea lion and sea lion feeding on seabirds to spear fish was entertaining. Tokyo it is often a good Zoo. It is better so hard around briefly go through the morning, but this time it was from the afternoon to come 10 minutes time for the visit.

  • This is the saddest zoo I've ever been too. The animal enclosures are super small to the point that they barely have room to move around. They were all either just sitting in a corner or pacing around...  more »
  • It will be probably in Japan most famous Zoo. Very crowded with children on holiday. I recommend to go out early in the morning to avoid crowds the. From a classic such as Panda, giraffe, elephant variety from rare animals like the Okapi, shoebill can watch without getting tired in many ways because I think. And also, however, that the city and take humans to animals so narrow? I think.

  • Best value for money. So many animals to see. well worth a look. great family holiday spot. Thanks Japan
  • It's not as if the zoo is poorly kept, dirty or ugly but the animal enclosures are small by top zoo standards. Some animals looked awfully sad and bored. Had mixed feelings when leaving. They should triple admission price to upgrade all animal enclosures! Happy to pay much more for animals happiness.
  • Loved it here. Big zoo with plenty to do and see. Well spread out and plenty of walking to do. Plus show your passport at the entrance to receive a discount
  • Nice zoo, good variety of animals. Most enclosures are pretty good, though some animals appear to show some stereotypical behaviour.
  • Crowded on weekends and public holidays. Pretty big zoo, worth visiting once especially if you have kids. You can see Lord harambe here.
