  • I was expecting it to be bigger than it is, but thankfully it is actually a manageable size, relatively speaking! You'd still need comfortable walking shoes and to allocate a full day here. Especially if you want to do both the zoo and amusement park area. It has a lot of animals that you can't see in the more popular and reasonably priced Saitama Children's zoo such as elephants, monkeys and white tigers. It is most famous for its white tigers. It is home to the first ever firefly house.
  • The park was really nice, big and clean, and we had a great time there. It was too hot, though, so maybe it's not the best idea to visit this place in a really sunny day. Not only you will suffocate; the animals were also pretty inactive due to the heat.
