Entrance fee is SO CHEAP compare to what we're used to in Australia(Nearly $50 per person!), I think it was around 600 yen? Many kinds of animals and you can get real close as it's not very crowded. Loved the monkeys and the orangtan... She kept kissing my hubby through the glass and kicking me through the glass!! I think... More

Easily accessible by train and a short 10 min walk, Kobe Oji Zoo has a very decent selection of exhibits which include pandas, the big cats, koalas and more, minus the waiting lines! It is set-up for children which means it is safe for them to run around, enjoy the fun park / rides section, and the "petting zoo" section... More

This zoo has a good variety of species including Giant Panda, big cats, bears, chimps and orangutans. All the animals looked in very good condition and all looked like they were treated very well.We spent about 3 hours there however if you had children there was a small fun fair so you could spend half a day there easily. It... More

It is a nice zoo experience and makes for a good 2 - 3 hour visit. Many monkeys and of course a Panda Bear. Animals seem to be very well cared for which is always important for such a facility.

We were most pleasantly surprised by this zoo which also contains a small entertainment park and eating hall. Then nimble were or appeared to be happy. Good facilities, it was not too busy when we went through, easy to find and only a short walk from the station. The animal petting part for our granddaughter was great. A really worthwhile... More

A very popular zoo, easily reachable by train from Osaka or Kobe. Pretty crowded with groups of school kids during the week, especially in spring and autumn. The giant pandas are the big draw. There are a couple of places to grab a bite to eat but we always grab some rice balls or a bento from the convenience store... More

I went there with my wife, our son and his family. We all really enjoyed this zoo. Not the biggest zoo I have been to, but the animals were fantastic. And they have nice rides for the small kids. The monkeys and the elephants were really neat, plus they have pandas too.

Nice sized zoo conveniently located near central kobe, and easily accessible using bus or train. Various animals could be seen including pandas and koalas. There is also a small amusement space (coin operated games) and some rides for young children. Free of charge for children (under high school) which I think is really budget friendly! It is compact, but pretty... More
