There are two distinct areas included in the admission. The southern one contains a lot of birds and an aquarium. The northern one is across the road and contains mostly mammals, and a large amount of different attractions. These include a guinea pig petting area (open at various times), a squirrel enclosure (you go inside), a sculpture museum, an outdoor cafe, a small theme park, a small tea house (no tea being served if I recall). We came to see some Japanese wildlife and were not disappointed. Do note that other animals were present. Some highlights were the Japanese crane, squirrel trail and giant salamander. This park seems to cater well to families as we saw a lot of children. You can take the train here from Shinjuku.

My 2 years old boy enjoyed the birds and some animals but mostly his first experience of an amusement park !! Perfect for his age and even smaller :)

We came across this zoo while taking a walk in the nearby park area. Entry is wonderfully cheap and includes both the aquarium and larger zoo across the road. The aquarium side is small, with a selection of water foul and a breeding area for native swan, you can also hand feed some fish should you be brave enough. The larger zoo side is surprisingly comprehensive, with an inside squirrel walk-through and a sculpture garden (umm! nice but odd). You can grab a cute little lunch from the cafe shaped like an elephant and visit the shrine to the resident elephant that they housed years ago. There's a lot to see and many birds of prey compared to other zoos. You can also join in the petting of guinea pigs at allotted times through the day. They have an interesting selection of animals otherwise not seen and this is highly recommended for a fun and relaxing day out.

Great place for kids, beautiful open space. great play space with slides and swings. And if you go at the right time you can pet the guinea pigs. We missed that the first time around in August but we plan on going again. Close to Mitaka so we often walk there with the kids. Just super busy on the weekends so try to go during the week.

We really likes this little Zoo, it had a great selection of smaller animals including leopard cats, desert dogs and monkeys.

A real highlight was the red squirrel enclosure, where you can walk amongst hundreds of the squirrels, feeding them along the way.

It's worth noting that the Zoo is actually spread out over 2 locations, the main zoo is just north of the park, the other part is in the heart of the park itself. The extremely cheap ticket gets you access in to both areas, however the smaller section in the park is mainly just birds.

However the zoo was a little odd; it seems the Japanese have a strange relationship with animals, some had fantastic big enclosures and others had small and stark ones that didn't seem suitable.

Also, the zoo's elephant had recently died, which was rather sad. Based on the tributes left by guests, she was once the main attraction of the park.
