Tama Zoological Park 東京都多摩動物公園

7-1-1 Hodokubo, Hino City, Tokyo

For a closer look at free roaming animals

Tama Zoological Park is not your ordinary zoo. You won't find many cages here. Instead, you'll see the animals in large open spaces surrounded by moats. The animals are able to roam the fence-free grounds in an environment designed to replicate their natural habitats. There is a "Lion Bus" that you can ride to see lions up close. The zoo also has habitats for giraffes, chimpanzees, and orangutans. Large eagles fly around in the enclosed dome, and leafcutter ants—which collect leaves to cultivate their food—can also be viewed.
The zoo is made up of four main areas: the Asiatic Garden, the African Garden, the Australian Garden, and the Insectarium. Visit all four to see around 300 different animal species.
