Reviewed:2018/07/30 It's not the biggest zoo in the world, but it gets the job done
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.
