Tama Zoo has over 300 species of animals. Truly an enjoyable zoo to go to because the animals look very well cared for. We went in spring and it was amazing how many baby animals we saw (a sign that the animals are happy). Most...More

We visited here and had a lovely day. All of the animals are pretty close and active and don't seem too depressed to be in a zoo. The park itself is nice and hilly and laid out in a beautiful area. The butterfly house, which...More

There was a lot of walking BUT it was worth! The best part was the lion bus! You pay a few hundred yen to ride a bus into a lion closure. There are little hooks on the bus that they put meat onto. It was...More

Very bid and children friendly. Nice to stroll through although make sure you have enough time because it is quite big. The Insect house was my personal favorite.

The zoo is big; however, many parts were closed due to renovation. I would prefer visiting Ueno zoo or Zoorasia in Yokohama than visiting Tama zoo. (The lion bus which is the main attraction was also closed when I visited there).

It's a very nice zoo. It's built into the side of the mountain so there's a bit of uphill walking, but we enjoyed it! It was very easy to access it from Fussa, just take the train to Tachikawa, then the monorail to Tama Dobutsukoen.
