    Kanagawa Pref. Yokohamashi Asahi-ku Kamishiranechou 1175-1
    Located in the Asahi Ward of Yokohama City, Zoorasia (Yokohama Zoological Gardens) is a zoo inspired by the vision of “Symbiosis of Life and Harmony with Nature.” Zoorasia covers a total area of approximately 53.3 hectares, making it Japan’s largest zoo. The name “Zoorasia” (combing “Zoo” and “Eurasia”) reflects the large size of the zoo, comparing it (tongue-in-cheek) to the size of the Eurasian continent. The zoo is divided into eight zones based on climatic and geographic conditions in different parts of the world, recreating the kinds of environment in which the animals live in the wild. Every summer, the zoo stays open in the evening as “Night Zoorasia”; public response to this initiative has been very positive.

    It’s bit far to reach from Central Yokohama area but it’s still worth while going there to explore Zoorasia. Elephants welcome visitors entering from the main gate! It offers more than we expected...

The zoo has prepared spacious grounds for keeping its large herbivores, and you can take your time and enjoy watching them amidst beautiful natural environments. Time your visit right, and you can watch koalas eating eucalyptus leaves. There’s also a petting zoo where you can play with goats and sheep. The great grey kangaroo area, which lets visitors actually walk through it, is particularly popular.

    This was a great visit. Got to pet a kangaroo. Neat animals and exhibits. Bus could have taken us a little closer to gate, that was a little walk, but other than that, it was great.

Kanagawa Main Areas

around-area-map

Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
