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.

This zoo covered a large area and feels like a park with many area. The animal's habitats are much larger than most zoos in Japan. There is a large playground in the middle of the zoo which is very fun. It has a climbing zone, slides, zip line, and picnic areas. Exploring the zoo at a comfortable pace will take most of the day. The zoo is very accessable for strollers and wheelchairs. All exhibits have level access, ramps. The few observation platforms that are high above ground level also have elevators. You can enter the zoo from two directions and there is a shuttle bus between the ends of you don't want to walk back to your car. Parking is ¥1000 flat rate and paid when you exit. You can pay at the exit using cash or buy an exit ticket with a credit card if you want. Prepare for a long wait if you leave at closing time.

Awesome zoo. Longer than it is wide. Really good entry price but surprised with 1000 yen price for parking. Very happy to see a 200 yen shuttle bus to bring you back to the main entrance once you reach the end. They limit entry on the weekend so you have to make a reservation

I love this zoo. So many fun animals, children's play areas are all over the place, the food is super cheap and delicious and best of all, kids are free on the weekends! If you have little ones you can rent a stroller from the park for very cheap and the park is beautifully designed. I love coming here.

A very big zoo with lots of animals (Zooasia)
Pro: Fair price, a lot of animals in different areas, stroller rentals, play ground for the children, easily a half day or more outing with the family.
Con: Actual destination requires driving a car or taxi, but if you're lucky you can catch a bus to the entrance (google maps doesn't accurately tell you that), not too many benches to sit down and watch the animals, so you'll be on your feet a lot, lots of bugs so bring bug spray.
Summary: One of the better zoos I've been too. A wide variety of animals ranging from elephants to polar bears, and cheetahs to orangutans. Children were amazed at seeing so many different kinds of animals in one place. Highly recommend and would go again.

One of the best zoos in Japan. Animals from all over the world with ample enclosement space, unlike most other zoos in Japan.
You can even take your own food and have a little picnic.
