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 a large zoo, so expect to have to walk quite far to see everything. Based outside of town it is spacious and has several play areas for children. Being out of town though we found it a little harder to get to as the local bus stop didn't have much English available. A nice zoo though.

We went to the last night of night zoo. Would have been better if they had more lights on the paths. Some stretches were pitch black.would recommend going during the day.

Zoorasia (ズーラシア) is one of Japan's newest, largest and best kept zoos. The zoo was established in 1999, and since then has been operating under the themes of "Symbiosis of Life" and "Harmony with Nature". The animals are generally kept in spacious areas that mimic their natural habitat to a degree that is not usually seen in Japanese zoos.

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.
