Part of the grounds surrounding Hikawa shrine, don't expect a massive corporate zoo. This is a quaint, FREE zoo that's been here for a very long time and includes many Japanese animals too like bears and monkeys. Well worth 10-15 mins on your way through to the shrine.

I dislike any caging of animals - especially when the allocated space and habitat is so small - can/should not be called a zoo. The number of animals on display are very limited - making one feel as if the place was created as a afterthought ... and then forgotten. Walk through in under 10 minutes.
