The zoo was a 10 minute walk from our hotel so very convenient to visit and something that our young kids were looking forward to. The cost is inexpensive, 500 yen for adults and 200 yen for children but free for kids aged 6 and...More

Overall okay. That’s OKAY nothing standout. A couple of missing exhibits etc. just little stuff fell short. No mistreatment of animals or other problems in that line. Good care and feeding seemed apparent.

The kids had fun learning about animals and their unique characteristics during our visit to Tennoji Zoo in Osaka. Make sure to arrive early and go on a weekend to avoid the crowds. I pity the wolves though. They looked malnourished and needed a space...More
