An incredible Zoo compared to other zoos I have visited in the United Kingdom and Nairobi National Park.

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

This zoo was recommended by a friend of ours and it was a delight to walk in the open-air atmosphere compared with most zoos. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it. The playground alone with its zipline and climbing equipment captivated our kids for an hour, and we still had to tear our youngest away. Super-reasonable price... More

A big, well-maintained zoo with many different types of animals. The pathways are wide, much of which are not shaded. There are several spots throughout the compound to take shelter in, but only 1 was enclosed with A/C. There are also (if I remember correctly): 2 gift shops, 1 restaurant, a cafe, drink vending machines, a truck that serves only... More

Enjoyed a lovely afternoon strolling through this zoo. Quite walk-able with a good display of many animals. Being American, I still had to adjust to the school children just dropping their backpacks in a pile and wandering throughout the zoo on their own. It's wonderfully safe and comfortable.

Our family visited zoorasia during golden week holidays, i thought it would be over crowded, but since it is located in a big territory the crowd was not a problem. My son enjoyed very much, we loved Arctic animals, especially snowy owl. Food was not good, so you better bring some snack and sandwiches with you!!!

The day was very cold when we went to Zoorasia, in fact they had forecast snow! But that did not stop us. We had a little adventure to get there as we first caught the train from Yokohama to Tsurugamine station on the Sotetsu line and then needed to transfer to a bus for the zoo. Unfortunately we did not... More

This zoo is truly a zoological garden with a wide range of animals and exihibitions. The parking is good and the zoo is very easy to find; it is right off route 45 (heading towards LTO) off the Hodogoya Bypass. There are plenty of signs to direct you to the location.

Easy to walk for both children and adults. Beautifully landscaped walkways. Easy to get to via local buses (with timetables -- a big plus with little kids).
