Kobe Oji Zoo神戸市立王子動物園


This is a zoo in Oji Park and is located about three minutes on foot from Oji-koen Station on the Hankyu Line. In addition to the zoo being in the park, there are also such facilities as Zoological Science Museum, an amusement park, restaurants, shops, and Kobe’s Ijinkan, Former Hunter’s residence, so you can spend a full day enjoying it all. One of the highlights is looking at the animals being fed or trained such as being able to see the panda in accordance with the time schedule. Also, during petting time you can have a cute rabbit or a guinea pig on your lap, and you can take a picture with them.

Review of Kobe Oji Zoo

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/12/01 ANIMAL WELFARE
Very upset with the animal exhibits, animals were stressed and the enclose were too small for animals themselves. It can be great day for the family to see de stress animals for entertainment...
Reviewed:2018/07/12 Good zoo in Kobe
Wondering what to do in Kobe for budget
This is a great place. Big, clean, lots of animals to see.
Children below 12Y is FREE!!!
Food corner price was still okay and tasty.
Reviewed:2018/05/14 See a panda at feeding time
I enjoyed this zoo a lot. There are animals I wouldn't see normally and in some cases visitors can get closer to them than I have at other zoos. We were able to see panda leaning against a tree...

          Hyogo Main Areas


          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
