A place to pass the time

The zoo itself isn't anything special but, a nice place to pass the time, a surprising thing was that there is an statue museum inside.

Really good place to visit with Kids
May 2019 • Family
We had a great time at Inokashira Parks... both the parks... the aquatic life park as well as the zoo are good and very well maintained. The best thing I liked about them was the size of both of them. They are not like usual Zoos which are soooo huge that the kid as well as the parents are dead while covering it. These parks are smaller in size and hence you still have some energy left in you after visiting the parks.

Our 3 year old kid still had some energy left for kids swings after completing the aquatic park and the zoo on the same day.

Another good thing is that the parks do provide various experiences for the kids...
1) Birds 2) Animals 3) Motored swings 4) Kids play zone 5) Experiential Guinea pigs zone etc. My favorite of all of them was the Guinea pig zone where my baby also had a great time.

Overall, a nice place to visit if you have a kid >2-2.5 years.

A nice way to pass an hour
Apr 2019 • Couples
The Inokashira park zoo consists of two small areas

It is really cheap to get in, and tourists get 20% discount on producing passports. Entry is approx ¥400 each.

The zoo won't compare to larger city zoos, but for what it is, it's a nice way to spend some time when the weather is decent.

There are a good range of animals, although most were sleeping due to the warm weather.

A bit sad
Mar 2019 • Family
It's a small zoo, the entrance fee is quite low, but zoos in general are cheaper to gain admission to than most American zoos, if that's where you are coming from. Enclosures are small. Most animals have somewhere to tuck away from humans but really the space is quite cramped. The monkeys all seem to have a skin condition.

There is a limited offering of guinea pig handling, but the staff seem poorly trained and handle the guinea pigs by scooping them up by their 'armpits' with no support to their bottoms, and of course others copy them. This is not great for guinea pigs and I can only imagine how the rest of the animals are handled.

In general, I don't really recommend it if you are concerned for the welfare of animals and prefer zoos that focus on education and conservation of animals.

Good afternoon walk for the family
Aug 2018 • Family
Visit to the aqua park including fish and birds and then cross the road to see the mammals. Also some fun rides for the kids which my 4 year old loved. Loads of shade and plenty of places to relax and drink or eat a snack. Worthwhile to visit during the hot humid summer months for sure.

Amazing for the price
Apr 2018 • Couples
I really enjoyed my visit to Inokashira park zoo for a bunch of reasons.

I had no idea it was technically 2 parks (the marine park is further into the actual park and definitely worth a visit as it's included in the original ticket price), I saw loads of indigenous Japanese animals (like Tanuki and Kitsune), and was a lot larger than I expected.

The only thing that confused us (and probably wouldn't have if we understood Japanese better) was the asian Elephant. We went into the indoor viewing area/enclosure and there were just written displays. We then saw someone playing violin through a door way and wondered if it was just having a chill out period in a more private area.

Then we went around to the main outdoor enclosure which had loads of people standing around in it, and then the violinist appeared. She stood quite far back so we both kind of assumed they were bringing the elephant out for a meet and greet or something, but no elephant appeared. We then realised that it must have died.

Other than that though, the park was fantastic. So many families enjoying the sunshine and the small fair ground.

10minutes walk from Kichijoji sta. Very wide park. There is a lake then yiu can enjoy boating. There is a small zoi, too. Actually this is good datinf place but there is a rumar that couples who did boating together will never fail to be separated.
There is a small shrine where female god stays. They say the god ks jealous.

Small but cheap
Feb 2018 • Friends
Entry to the zoo is very cheap and you get a discount if you show your passport. Good for young families to occupy their children. It’s a small park. Personally I feel the enclosures are too small for the animals and are dirty. I was concerned for the state of the animals. It’s true that visitors can get up close to the animals but I feel like the animals are in such small enclosures they would be very overwhelmed. There is a small petting area for children to pet guinea pigs. There are also a few rides towards the back of the park that children can play on.

2017/07/22 Tina在動物園手抱著天竺鼠,做親密接觸;接著去生物廣場探訪許多野生動物,十分有趣。At the Inokashira Park Zoo, the Guinea Pig Petting Zoo and the Squirrel Trail attracted a lot of visitors to see the lovely animals.
