    The Omoriyama Zoo opened in 1973 and is approximately 8.8 hectares in size. The zoo has a characteristic terrain being surrounded by various trees and plants, and has a spring water lake called “Shiohikigata” in the center. There are 97 kinds of animals kept in the zoo and it takes approximately 90 minutes to leisurely walk around seeing them. There is also a visitor center, snack corner, the “Asove Forest” with large playground equipment, and an observation platform as well as Omoriyama Amusement Park “Aniba.” It is approximately 15 minutes from Akita Minami Interchange on the Akita Expressway.

    Can't beat the price! Sure, the zoo doesn't necessarily have the most impressive collection of animals, but you sure get lots of value for the money!

Akita Main Areas


Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
