One of the most reasonable priced at ¥610 per person. The red panda exhibit and roller slide could be all day for young children. Animals are well cared for and the little restaurants are pretty good. Even busy this zoo allows you to just flow...More

When we were there, it was drizzling and it seems that all the animals are taking shelter inside their quarters. Most of the animals enclosures are empty. So we managed to visit the indoor animals like turtles, penguin etc. The zoo closes at 4.30pm thus...More
