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 is my new favorite zoo in Japan. The atmosphere is so pleasant. The walkways wind through trees and it feels like a walk through a wonderful park with great animal exhibits along the way. There isn’t the profoundly squished feeling you get from many other zoos in the region. Our kids absolutely loved it!

Zoorasia is the largest animal wildlife park, and is well worth the trip. The facility is as beautiful as it is expansive, with lush greenery and flowers everywhere. The environments for each of the animals are made to mimic their natural habitat as much as possibles, and for the most part they appear to be content and very well cared for. One caveat is because the distances you need to walk, small children can tire out. Rest time needs to be built into the schedule.

Very large scale, uncountable variety of animals with many one-point tips worth learning not only for kids but adults (mainly in Japanese though). You can enjoy walking in artificial forest feeling you are far away from capital area. Kids can also have fun in athletic fields between animal exhibition.

Great zoo! Much larger enclosures than other Japanese zoos we've seen, and by zoo standards, the animals appeared happy. Big too! It was pretty much deserted when we were there, and we still only covered half of it in 2.5 hours. Nicely landscaped too.

Its big and one the best zoo. Entry fee is cheap and parking charge is also reasonable. Lots of activities here and its big…can spend the whole day easily.
