Yokohama Zoorasia is one of Japan’s newest zoos and
it has been operating under the themes of “Symbiosis
of Life” and “Harmony with Nature.” The animals are
generally kept in spacious areas that mimic their natural
habitats. The animal exhibitions are spread out over
eight areas: Asian Tropical Forest, Subarctic Forest,
Oceanian Grassland, Central Asian Highland, Japanese
Countryside, Amazon Jungle, African Tropical Rainforest
and the African Savannah. Among the zoo’s highlights
are the elephants, polar bears, black bears, okapi and
proboscis monkeys. There are restaurants and cafes, as
well as nature trails and recreation areas for kids.
