Yokohama Zoo ''Zoorasia''
Ranked #7 of 711 things to do in Yokohama
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 31, 2014

This zoo was recommended by a friend of ours and it was a delight to walk in the open-air atmosphere compared with most zoos. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it. The playground alone with its zipline and climbing equipment captivated our kids for an hour, and we still had to tear our youngest away. Super-reasonable price for Japan.

A big, well-maintained zoo with many different types of animals. The pathways are wide, much of which are not shaded. There are several spots throughout the compound to take shelter in, but only 1 was enclosed with A/C. There are also (if I remember correctly): 2 gift shops, 1 restaurant, a cafe, drink vending machines, a truck that serves only drinks, a playground, and an under construction petting zoo. With the exception of a black bear that kept pacing in circles, the animals are in good shape. The enclosures where they stay at are clean and seem to be proportionate for the size and/or number of those residing.

We went here on a weekday. There wasn't much people around, mainly families with children and us being the only foreigners. Several animals were either sleeping or hidden from view, which was disappointing but understandable due to the hot weather and serene and quiet atmosphere. We got to witness one of the zoo's employees feed some monkeys; unfortunately, she was talking in Japanese while feeding them so we couldn't understand her. All in all, though, the 600 yen admission fee was worth the several-hours visit.

Enjoyed a lovely afternoon strolling through this zoo. Quite walk-able with a good display of many animals. Being American, I still had to adjust to the school children just dropping their backpacks in a pile and wandering throughout the zoo on their own. It's wonderfully safe and comfortable.

Our family visited zoorasia during golden week holidays, i thought it would be over crowded, but since it is located in a big territory the crowd was not a problem. My son enjoyed very much, we loved Arctic animals, especially snowy owl.
Food was not good, so you better bring some snack and sandwiches with you!!!
