“A day for children”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

This zoo is in the process of being upgraded and some of the older accommodation for the animals is not up to standard .The new enclosures are however good. There is a nice walk up through the woods from the Jinga temple

“Great for kids during snow festival”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

It was fabulous! Some of the reviews we read were not that great but it isn't a huge place. They had ice slides constructed for the kids and adults and we loved it. It was fun to go even though it snowed a little

“The Zoo at maruyama”
Reviewed September 30, 2009

I found the zoo at Maruyama to be a horrible example of animal cruelty. The cages were too small, the animals seemed sick and bored. The facilities were old but maintained. There were a moderate variety of the animals. There are much better zoos to visit in Japan.
