  • In Kobe, there is a facility where various animals can be seen for the city prince zoo, rokko mountain ranch, and the child, but it can be said that it is a "experience type zoo" so to speak that it is possible to touch it directly in front of the vicinity with the animal here especially here. At first, when even a frightened child can buy it, he leaks the impression of "It was fun". Hopefully it's easier for adults to get there if they have a little bit of a cheap price or a distribution of various coupons.

  • There was a thing of the vicinity, too, and it went with the grandchild. Unlike ordinary zoos, it is a facility with many opportunities to touch animals. The age range from small children to the elderly was wide, and i often saw young couples. Academic indications are also recorded. I went by car, but i'm glad that the parking fee is 500 yen a day. However, it took a long time to get out of the car in the form of paying at the exit. I think it would be even more convenient if you could pay for the parking fee at the place where you often see it in shopping malls, or if you can pay for parking at the place where you buy a ticket. If my grandson asked me again, I'm sure i'll go.

  • A nice zoo where you get to see most friendly animals up close and personal. Entrance fee is 1000 yen per person and closes at 5pm. This place is kids friendly if that matters to you. I can't remember any exotic animal of sorts except some birds that are caged up. Depending on how much of a zoo person you are, the one in Hokkaido might interest you more.
  • A one of a kind interactive experience. The admission is a little steep, 1800 yen but well worth it. There are areas where you can pet and feed various animals including capybaras, kangaroos and penguins. They also have animal performances several times a day.
