Part of the "Animal Supporter System," Kobe Oji Zoo houses around 850 animals from a total of 150 different species. The 80,000 sq m (861,100 sq ft) zoo contains many animals rarely in the wild, such as giant panda, golden snub-nosed monkey, Amur tiger, and snow leopard. Children have a special section where they can pet rabbits and goats, and the Fierce Animal Coliseum lets you observe big cats through thick glass windows. After examining the animal life, head over to the recreational area to ride the Ferris wheel and see an authentic D51 steam locomotive.

Kobe Oji Zoo Reviews
大きな象がいて、象牙も立派でした。 カピバラにペンギン、レッサーパンダ、かわいい動物たちも、様々な猿類も居ました。 コアラもパンダも居て、見ごたえあります。 カピバラの名前がおもしろかったです。 お土産も充実していて、オリジナルのパンダTシャツを思わず購入しました。 more »There was a big elephant, and the ivory was splendid, too. There were penguins, lesser pandas, cute animals, and a variety of monkeys in capybara. There are koalas and pandas, and it's impressive. The name of the capybara was interesting. The souvenir was substantial, too, and I purchased an original panda T-shirt unintentionally.
Spent about 4 hours here at the zoo. They have a small amusement part as well which bot my kids loved. Overall, very impressive and easy to get to from the JR line. more »
It is a great park, a lot to see, good in all seasons. Great for a picnic. You can get food there. Amusement park attached. The annual pass is worth it. Fun for kids of any ages. Keep in mind it closes early in winter.
I am impressed how they keep the zoo so clean..red pandas and grizzly bears are the first for me..
