This time, I went to Higashiyama Zoo in Nagoya City. Higashiyama Zoo is located in Higashiyama Park in Higashiyamamoto-cho, Chikusa-ku, Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture. Higashiyama Zoo has the largest number of animals in Japan. It is also the largest zoo in Japan. The Higashiyama Zoo also has a botanical garden where you can also enjoy plants.

Recommended way to play
I have been to Higashiyama Zoo several times. Because there are few people in the morning, I always go early in the morning. As Higashiyama Zoo opens at 9 o’clock, let’s leave according to it.
The recommendation is “Fureai Plaza”. In “Fureai Plaza”, you can touch animals and give food. There are goats and guinea pigs.
I also did a stamp rally. Children love stamp rally. By the way, the stamp rally will be crowded in the afternoon so it should be finished in the morning. When I answered the questionnaire, I was also campaigning for tablets and travel tickets.
There is also an amusement park in Higashiyama Zoo. Adults are ¥ 1100. Children and parents are 1600 yen. I went to ”the mirror house”. This is a maze of clear plastic walls, and if you proceed without thinking, you will hit your head. We had a naughty boy behind me, and he was hitting into the wall.
The Higashiyama Zoo usually closes at 16:50. However, only one week in summer, the closing time is extended to 20:30. Nocturnal animals are active at night, so you can see something unusual.
