Are you looking for Tokyo zoos? If there is one thing that Tokyo is well known for, it is the love for animals. Everywhere you look there are places that boast interactions and experiences with some funny and cute creatures. Cafes aside, where are the best places to see those animals? Traditionally, you would expect to find them in the various zoos and aquariums. The Tokyo zoos and aquariums are some of the best in the country, and can keep a family entertained for days. There is no giant unified zoo or aquarium for the entire city of Tokyo. Instead, several individual parks have opened, each with their own interesting exhibits.

Most importantly, one of the best experiences families can have while on holiday revolves around days at the zoo. Children love nothing more than to see live animals up close. To help find that perfect zoo for your needs, here is your complete guide to Tokyo zoos and aquariums.

Or maybe you’d rather see something more up-close and personal. You could visit one of Tokyo’s many owl cafes.
