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.

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.

Excellent park for the family! Park is really large so don't start too late in the morning. Lots of animals and beautiful scenery. Theres several places to get food/snacks and a few play areas for kids as well.

Excellent place to bring kids. Better to go in morning coz they close by 4:30PM. I recommend one to take the bus in the entrance to go to top and then walk all over the zoo.

My first time visiting a zoo in Japan and this place is amazing. I felt like a kid again looking around the animals and the environment itself. I would recommend this place for everyone.
