Tobu Zoo, Miyashiro-machi

#1 of 8 in Theme Parks in Saitama Prefecture
Striking a balance between zoo and amusement park, Tobu Zoo sprawls across a wide area to provide for a full day's entertainment. With 1,200 animals from 120 species, including a white Siberian tiger, as well as a thrilling wooden roller coaster, the park also has a large leisure pool complex to help you cool off during the warmer months. Children can ride a pony, pet deer, goats, and sheep, or feed the animals for a small extra fee. You can choose from plenty of food outlets onsite, or bring some food and fire up your own barbecue.

  • The zoo is partially an amusement park but after buying the ticket for just the zoo, it was very confusing what could and could not be used with a zoo ticket. There was a tram that we couldn't take bu...  more »
  • I got a ticket, so I took four people, aged five and one, on Sunday. It is less than 10 minutes walk from the station, and the entrance gate as soon as it crosses the place where some private parking lots are lined up to the right at the end of the street straight all the way to the station where a part of the point and the track which had been used before is left in front of the station. There are restaurants on the way from the station, but there are no convenience stores, and there is a supermarket called Gigapearl. On the way back, it was 170 yen by bus to the station. The gate on the station side is the amusement park zone, and the parking lot side is the zoo zone. There is a bus locomotive (both charges) to move each area in the zoo, but it was a walk, so i moved on foot. In the morning, there were no vehicles or rows, and there were empty seats. Check the time of the event and the show of the feeding experience, the petting plaza, and each animal in advance. Experience deer (200 yen) and elephant bait (500 yen). When the deer cracks the monaca by the purchase from the vending machine, the hood is in inside, and it puts it on the hand or stand...

  • I was expecting it to be bigger than it is, but thankfully it is actually a manageable size, relatively speaking! You'd still need comfortable walking shoes and to allocate a full day here. Especially if you want to do both the zoo and amusement park area. It has a lot of animals that you can't see in the more popular and reasonably priced Saitama Children's zoo such as elephants, monkeys and white tigers. It is most famous for its white tigers. It is home to the first ever firefly house.
  • The park was really nice, big and clean, and we had a great time there. It was too hot, though, so maybe it's not the best idea to visit this place in a really sunny day. Not only you will suffocate; the animals were also pretty inactive due to the heat.
