Zoorasia - Yokohama Zoological Gardensよこはま動物園ズーラシア


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.

          Kanagawa Main Areas


          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.
