Yokohama Municipal Kanazawa Zoo横浜市立金沢動物園
Located 12 minutes away by bus from the west exit of Keihin Electric Express Railway Kanazawa-bunko Station; get off at the “Natsuyamasakaue” stop. A municipal zoo located in Kanazawa Natural Park. Focusing primarily on rare herbivores animals, many animals found at no other zoo are kept here. 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.

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.
