  • Good weather on Saturday went to the decades Buri. It is quite small compared to the TAMA Zoo, but I was wondering if a child is very wide. We recommend turning on time because the Panda is saying what is not included here, but I barely slept during the day. Because they eat bamboo at roughly 3:00 2:30 as is your chance. City Zoo because space each animal enough, not the poor little things, but Hill bears and polar bears, gorillas can be seen from a variety of locations, so very good. After 4 pm the evening returned to the stables hippos and giraffes, rhinos, up-close with the Okapi is also good.

  • 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.
