A beautiful zoo not to be missed. This is Tokyo's oldest zoo and is located in a gorgeous large park that also features shrines, museums, markets, and a lake. I was excited about the low cost of this zoo which is not usually common for big attractions. I was blown away inside by how close you could get to the animals and the wonderful viewing spots available. This was a great day out and a wonderful location for all animal enthusiasts and their families, this is also a wonderful spot to see a panda! Be sure to check out the polar bears, they are very active and love to put on a show!
