Tokushima zoo covers an area of some 15.19 hectares! It’s BIG!
If you come for a visit, we definitely recommend coming on a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday when plenty of events are arranged.
There are various events that both adults and children can enjoy, such as "Suisui Time" (Japanese river otters chase loaches in the water), as well as feeding the elephants, and getting to hold a guinea pig.
One we definitely want you to keep an eye open for is the pony ride.
An event limited to elementary school students, a raffle is used to pick the 15 children who get to ride the pony. Families who have elementary school aged children should definitely participate in the raffle!
Pororo apparently loves ball games, so he throws a ball in the pool by himself, and then jumps in the water to get it. Pororo is very lively!!
Within it there are many tiny ultra-cute squirrel monkeys.
Just watching them is healing to the heart, but if you participate in "Challenge the Keeper", an event held from 10.25 am on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, you can give them feed and even interact directly with them (limited to 5 raffle selected groups).
If you hold out your hand, they may just climb up your arm and sit on your shoulder; they're very friendly squirrel monkeys.
I can't take it! They're so cute!!!
It's worth visiting Tokushima Zoo just to meet these little fellas!!!!
Okay, I lost my self-composure a bit there… There are also plenty of other cute animals such as red pandas and meerkats, as well as animals with a huge presence such as lions and tigers.
If you plan to visit, aim to come on a Saturday, Sunday or on a public holiday when you can spend the day enjoying the events!

Daisuke Chiba / Photo-writer I was born in 1985 in Miyoshi City, Tokushima Prefecture, and now live in Tokushima City. After graduating university, I worked at a publishing company as an editor for various mooks, and in April 2014 I went freelance. I work as a photographer, copy-writer and editor, but also do product development and other stuff as well. If anyone needs me, I can do anything! Except, in spite of my being from Tokushima, dancing - I’m really bad at dancing Awa Odori!
