  • You can go to one stop from Kobe Airport. Admission is 1,500 yen. There seem to be a lot of events which touch the animal such as the show of waswashimuz. There is also a shop and a restaurant on site, so you can enjoy it all day long.

  • It is close to the animal and can touch it. There were many animal shows, so i enjoyed the day. Because there is a roof of about seven percent, it is all right even on a rainy day. Unlike the old zoo, there are many different devices. The price is a little high, but I thought it was a zoo worth going to.

  • A nice zoo where you get to see most friendly animals up close and personal. Entrance fee is 1000 yen per person and closes at 5pm. This place is kids friendly if that matters to you. I can't remember any exotic animal of sorts except some birds that are caged up. Depending on how much of a zoo person you are, the one in Hokkaido might interest you more.
  • A one of a kind interactive experience. The admission is a little steep, 1800 yen but well worth it. There are areas where you can pet and feed various animals including capybaras, kangaroos and penguins. They also have animal performances several times a day.
