  • JR上野站公園口出,就在恩賜公園內,入場收費便宜但有很多動物,大象、長頸鹿、西牛、北極熊、熊貓、羊駝、老虎等等,園內頗清潔,沒有難聞氣味,在那逛了2.5小時還未看完所有動物,適合全家或親子遊,有一些動物是可以摸的。

  • 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.
