Its not expensive so not bad for the value. But its not well kept and the animal enclosures are smaller than they should be. The elephant had a baby recently and we were lucky enough to be there during the feeding time.

Okinawa can learn from other countries on how to treat caged animals. It is pathetic to see the animals in a sad state...of course, that is not their natural habitat. The only part I like in this place is their science center and the area for feeding the fish.

The best exhibits are the huge cages with bats. The bats are big and so cute! The bigger animals just look miserable on their cement slabs. It's ok for young kids, who might not notice, and the walk around the park is nice, open, pretty landscaping. But mind the midday heat! However, inside the zoo is a children's museum that... More

My daughter enjoyed the petting(open from 9:30~) area the most. They had guinea-pigs, chicks, two goats , three rabbits and four turtles. She wanted to ride the elephant for 2000¥ but when she saw it chained to the fence refused . We saw the hippos being fed. They have pony rides on Saturday and Sunday for 500¥. Nice holidays illumination!

This zoo makes absolutely no effort to provide anything resembling a natural habitat for most of the animals. Almost all are housed in small pens with concrete pads. There are much better places to spend my time and money on Okinawa.

The Okinawa Zoo and Wonder Museum is a great way to spend the day for children and adults alike. There are a number of animals and tons of information to help educate and inform visitors of all ages. It is important that those who visit understand that this is an average zoo, not a high quality animal experience like WDW... More

My family has been here twice. Once for a normal zoo visit in June and another for their evening Christmas Lights Celebration in December. My daughter enjoyed her Birthday at the Zoo. Some of the paths are really steep. Not for the handicapped or really young. They had a wide variety of animals, especially the reptile house. If you are... More

This little zoo is tucked away in the middle of the town. It's smaller than American zoos, but bigger than I thought it would be. My husband and I took my sister and niece there while they were visiting us. Plenty of monkeys if your kids like monkeys, and a good amount/variety of other animals. I think it's about a... More
