Nice Zoo

It's small and very well maintained. Still has some construction in places to make the zoo bigger. Overall great place to visit.

We have been many times, our kids just love it. Recently we visited to check out the new Africa zone with Cheetahs, zebra, Elnad and meerkats etc. This zoo has so much space for animals in natural settings, it is much more a safari than a zoo, no small cages and horrible smells. Great facilities for kids, heaps of toilets,... More

Compared to the other nearby zoo that I've visited, Zoorasia remained our main choice! The zoo is huge and animals are in natural surrounding. The African savannah is newly opened and you can see zebras and giraffes. We've visited this zoo during all 4 seasons. and no matter how many people came to visit, because of its huge compound, you... More

This zoo is really good. One of the best parts were the chimps!!! That was funny cause my friends and I made a male really mad and some of the chimps were eating their own feces!!! My friends and I really enjoyed it. Everything is spread out and located weirdly so it's kind of hard to navigate. Everything else was... More

Its a nice place to visit and good exhibits, problems is they allow WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too many people into the park that it actually just makes it kind of hard to enjoy.

We went when it was cool so a lot of the animals were looking a bit unhappy aside from the polar bears, but that can't be helped I guess. There are a lot of exhibits and there was one still under construction then. Overall it was a beautiful zoo that I would have enjoyed more if it was summer time.

Not the most convenient of locations, but zoorasia is easy enough to get to : take the doubutsuen mae bus from outside nakayama station, there's a big zoo sign for the bus stop. A decently sized zoo, with better enclosures than some of the other zoos in japan. Coming from a country where there are a lot of high quality... More
