    Oji Zoo

    Oji Zoo houses a variety of unique animals. Depending on where you come from, a visit to Oji Zoo may be well worth it to see some animals you've never seen before. The highlight of the zoo are the giant pandas, and they are quite cute and impressive. I'd never seen a panda before, so this was fun for me! They also have red pandas, koalas, giraffes, kangaroos, elephants, hippos, rhinocerous, flamingos, tigers, a jaguar, sea lions, bats, monkeys, bears, and many more animals.

    If you're travelling with children, Oji Zoo is a great place to take them. Many children enjoy zoos, and this zoo also offers a petting zoo where children can pet goats and other animals. If the kids get bored of the animals (which is rare), there is also a small theme park in the zoo, so they can ride a few rides. The zoo itself is actually quite beautiful and appears to be well-maintained. You can get quite close views of many of the animals, so it's a nice time!

    To see the entire zoo, it takes about 2.5 hours. Although the aquariums in Japan tend to be expensive, this zoo only costs 600 yen for adults, 200 yen for middle schoolers, and elementary school children are free! It's closed on Wednesdays.

    Meeting Lovely Animals at Oji Zoo

    If you like going to a zoo, I recommend you to go to Oji Zoo in Kobe.
    If you are a fan of giant pandas, you will surely enjoy yourself here. There are two giant pandas in this zoo and you can watch them very close. And, what I would like to mention most is that the pandas are full of hospitality and they show you many lovely behaviors without stint. When I went there in summer, the pandas were almost sleeping. But I could enjoy how they sleep on their back and how they turned over in their sleep. This time they walked around the garden again and again and later showed us how to eat bamboo grass. They were so cute!
    In the beg cage of squirrels and little birds, the squirrels run around freely. Sometimes they come up to you and pull the hem of your skirt.
    At the water tank for eared seals, the seals come to the glass window from which you are watching them and stop moving there in order to greet you.
