How to get to Tama Zoo

About Tama Zoo

Tama Zoo is in Tama City, a suburb of Tokyo, an hour’s drive from downtown Tokyo.

It is the largest zoo in Japan.
Secondly, the matter of Japan’s ‘largest’ cannot be compared to my country ….. Ahaha, I can only say that Tama Zoo is 3 or 4 times bigger than Ueno Zoo, but the area is not as big as Beijing and Shanghai Zoo. There is a free Silver Shuttle that runs from 10am to 3.50pm around the Asian animal area.

The zoo is divided into the Asian, African, Insect and Australian zoos.
Compared to the Ueno Zoo, Tama’s animals are happier and are kept in a more natural environment.
