Yokohama Zoo Zoorasia4.3
In this zoological garden in the suburbs of Yokohama, you can see animals in an environment similar to their natural habitats. The zoo was opened in 1999 under the themes of "Symbiosis of Life" and "Harmony with Nature" and uses mostly moats, instead of fences or walls, to divide the animals and the viewers.
The animal exhibitions are divided into seven different climate zones - Subarctic Forest, Central Asian Highland, Asian Tropical Forest, Oceanian Grassland, Amazon Jungle, African Tropical Rain Forest, and Japanese Countryside. The zoo exhibits such rare animals as okapi, proboscis monkey, Tsushima cat, Indian lion, kagu and a various types of tapirs. The zoo has a breeding center for the purpose of researching and preserving rare species.

Great day out as part of a school trip. Would love to go back and see the rest of the park as it really needs a full day of exploring!

One of the biggest zoo around Tokyo. The commute from Central Tokyo is a hussle indeed. Apart from that, the zoo is a beautiful place to bring young children for a fun packed day. There are plenty of children's play equipments in different parts of the zoo. And the greeneries are plush around the whole place. Plenty of detailed displays on different zones of the world.

Huge place with great scenery and animals. An awesome place to bring kids! The zoo has many small rest/eating places to stop at. They also have some misting areas which is nice for the hot summer days. The back part of the zoo (where you get towards safari animals) doesn't really have much shade/tree areas, so be careful of the heat.

Nice for a day visit. But night zoo in summer can be different experience.

Amazing zoo! Great for children. There are also very well placed rest areas along the path.
