Private Tour - Wander off the "mainstream" track of Tokyo, and visit Chiba

Fantastic photo opportunities of beautiful views in Chiba City<br><br>40 minutes by train outside of Tokyo, not far from Narita International airport, is Chiba City. Chiba is rich in nature with many wonderful places to visit. <br><br>There is a botanical garden with beautiful sights to see throughout the year, a beach with a tropical vibe, and a location registered as one of Japan's Nightscape Heritage Sites, to name a few. Despite it being located right beside Tokyo, Chiba is little known by visitors from abroad. <br><br>Become the first of many to explore this wonderful area to get a more rural taste of Japan! Once you have made your way to Chiba, for the rest of the day, your otomo tour guide will do all the navigating, so just relax and enjoy your private tour.

I went to Chiba Zoological Park on Thursday 28th November 2019. The gardens all around the zoo are fabulous. The animals, however, are kept in very poor conditions. The gorilla, and some of the chimpanzees looks so depressed. Out in Nature, these wonderful creatures live in family packs. At Chiba Zoological Park, most of them live in solitary confinement. What fun is it to see depressed animals!! Instead of having a good experience, I came out of there feeling so sad. I even complained and raised my concern to the personnel at an office found within the zoo. The reply was that they have plans to upgrade the enclosures, but they lack the funds. I urge authorities to look into the matter urgently, because those animals deserve a safe and healthy lifestyle.

From my hotel near Chiba station, I took a short ride on the Monorail to the Chiba Zoological Park. It's only a very small zoo, but it did have an elephant, a giraffe, kangaroos, even an African lion. The animals looked decently treated and cared for by the small but very efficient and professional staff. A place worth visiting.

I went to this Zoo for the afternoon having seen a lot of positive reviews about is and was massively disappointed They do have a good selection of animals including most of what you would want any good zoo to have However - I was absolutely appalled by the enclosures for the animals as they are woefully inadequate both in terms of size and content The animals themselves seem to be either drugged or so bored and depressed by their dull and tiny enclosures with nothing to stimulate them that they just lay around (not sleeping) Considering the zoo didn’t seem to have large numbers of visitors the walkways and seating areas were excessively large and spacious The whole place needs either a massive renovation to give the animals more room and better enclosures while trimming down the area for people Or it should be shut down completely, which would be my vote, these animals deserve far better than this While I was there they were building an area for cheetahs and hyenas (due to open in 2020) and frankly I pity those animals this zoo doesn’t deserve them one bit

The zoo is spacious in natural surroundings, not crowded. You can visit animals together with enjoying each season. Soon, end of March you can enjoy cherry blossoms. There is a picnic area too. It's an ideal place with your kids.
