Let me start by saying I have been to zoos in over 30 countries and at least 30 states and this zoo was by far the worst. That's a tough thing to hear and to say but alas it's true. The enclosures were bare dirt, no grass or water or anything in them. The animals looked sad, dejected and defeated.... More

I went jogging in the afternoon from hotel Fuji, then saw the sign for a zoo. So I decided to check it out. It was nice and it was the first time I actually saw a donkey and penguinns. I won't mind going back there.

This is a small zoo (not very many varieties of animals; e.g. only one Elephant) but it's sure to capture anyone's imagination; and I think it's especially good for children to be able to concentrate on many attractions of the animal world. The cages etc. are a bit on the cramped side. There'a also a fine but small botanical garden... More
