Cheap entry price only ¥600 per head for adults and our 4 year old kid was free. Its more aimed at younger kids we had a few laughs watching the monkeys play and the Giraffe was cool. They had a old Lion that had a low roar and some Amur Tigers. All in all a good way to spend 4 hours with our kid.
It's an okay zoo. Dated enclosures and all-around in need of some TLC. The red panda building seems to be the newest and nicest thing there. Fun for the kids, although the free dinosaur park next store might serve you better. There's a bus between Shinonoi Station and the zoo on weekends and holidays only. It's 300 yen for a round-trip ticket and it also gets you a discount on admission.
