We really likes this little Zoo, it had a great selection of smaller animals including leopard cats, desert dogs and monkeys. A real highlight was the red squirrel enclosure, where you can walk amongst hundreds of the squirrels, feeding them along the way. It's worth...More

Took my toddler daughter. Big draw was the petting zoo and also some of the other interesting exhibits like squirrel trail and monkeys. English on most signage with good facilities for baby care, including diaper changing stations etc. I didn't realize there were some very...More

Exhibited land animals and aquatic animals here. Honestly I didn't expect the contents at first cause an admission fee was low. But it was impressive! I saw many kinds of animals. The smell of the animals was strong in Summer.

Lovely day out with a 2 year old & 6 month old. Only adults pay to get in and it's very cheap (320 ¥). We only covered the zoo half (there's another part with duck pond that we didn't see). It's more like a petting...More
