What people are saying:

Overall the zoo has a good core structure but has a lot to do to become truly world class. The variety of animals was fantastic but their exhibits needed a lot of work. If you’re visiting to see a lot of animals and get a view of some botanical gardens this is for you. If you’re wanting to practice your photography or are used to AZA/CAZA certified zoos in North America you will be sorely disappointed.For a full review visit: https://zoocritic.wordpress.com/2015/07/12/review-higashiyama-zoo/

    Very Nice Zoo

    Very nice Zoo to visit and great layout. They are making new building now, but still great on the layout. You can visit the Zoo and the Garden. I had a few hours so looked at the animals.

    Good enough for children, but a bit run down overall

    Have been to this zoo several times. It’s fine in many ways, in that it has a decent array of animals, some ok food on offer and some other attractions such as the botanical gardens and some rides. ...
