Tama Zoological Park
Observe animals through features like the orangutan skywalk and lion bus!
This zoo, one of the largest in the world exceeding 50 hectares, allows visitors to see about 300 species of animals, from ants to elephants. Located in the Tama Hills, walking around the park gives the feeling of hiking in a nature park.
The zoo is divided into four areas: the Asian Garden, the African Garden, the Australian Garden, and the Insectarium. Its unique feature is that it reduces the use of cages and separates animals with moats, allowing visitors to observe animals living freely.
It's a pioneer that created the world's first lion bus and insect ecology park. It also has a wildlife conservation center and works on the protection and breeding of endangered animals like the crested ibis and the Japanese stork.
