    The rain didn't dampen our experience one bit! In fact, it highlighted a wonderful aspect of the zoo's character - children's umbrella's only cost 300 yen. There was no entrance fee for children 15...

    Fukui Pref. Sabaeshi Sakuramachi 3-8-9
    Opened in 1985, the Sabae City Nishiyama Zoo has made great strides in raising and breeding rare wild animals, particularly the red panda. This zoo is one of the few in the country to successfully breed red pandas. Red pandas don’t like the heat so you can’t see them much in summer, but there are live cameras placed inside and outside the red panda house, so you can see them in all their cuteness.

    A zoo located on Mt. Chausu in Shinonoiutabi, Nagano City. The zoo is home to many animals and is divided into various areas such as a children's zoo where kids can play with rabbits and other small animals; a red panda forest; and an African plains area where visitors can be giraffes, zebras, and other large herbivores. The zoo also has a picnic area with an excellent view of the surrounding highlands.

    A zoo situated along Mizunote-dori Street in Ogi-machi, Iida City. Specializing in small animals such as Humboldt penguins, meerkats, beavers, and wallabies, the zoo also keeps birds, including birds of prey; monkeys; and Japanese serow. The zoo also has a petting zoo area with ponies.

    being a free zoo, its no wonder this zoo can't sustain itself. Its sad to see primates, our close relatives, being crammed in tiny cages. The exhibits are way too small. You shouldn't keep large...

Many families visit mainly on the weekends."

    Yamanashi Pref. Koufushi Otamachi 10-1
    The Kofu Yuki Park Zoo opened in 1919 and celebrated its 100-year history in 2019. It has been a favorite destination ever since its founding. Since 2016, members of the zoo staff have acted as animal guides, and they make presentations about the animals' environments and characteristics twice every Saturday and Sunday, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, making use of the knowledge that animal caretakers acquire in the course of their work.

    This Zoo doesn't have the right facilities for the animals. Cages for the animals were too small and they all looked as if they were starving. Wouldn't recommend go no there.
