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.

Wide open space for the animals and good exercise to walk between exhibits. Family friendly and fun for the whole family.

My family loved coming here. There is parking and sidewalks easily accessible for those on wheels. We were able to take the whole day and walk around seeing the animals. There are parks and areas for the children to play. Food is available as well as gift shops. There is a bus tram for fee too that can take you from one side to the other if your time is limited at the zoo. The animals seemed rather healthy and happy.

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.
