A zoological garden containing around 640 animals and 110 species from all over the world, displayed in a more free and natural environment.

The name of Zoorasia is a compound word combining “zoological park” and “Eurasia”, which contains the imagery of vast nature. As the name suggests, the park breeds and exhibits around 640 animals of 110 species from all over the world and is one of the largest zoos in Japan. There are 8 zones by climate and region and the animals are exhibited in a more free and natural environment. This method is known as Habitat Exhibition, and the aim is to not only observe animals, but also the environment they live in. Being able to see rare animals such as Okapi, Indian lion, red-shanked douc and Long-nosed monkey, is also appealing. Guided tours are offered to be able to see, know and learn about animals while having fun. Binoculars are available on loan to take a close look at faraway animals. It takes about 15 minutes by bus to Yokohama Dobutsuen from Sotetsu Line Tsurugamine Station or Mitsukyo Station or Yokohama Line Nakayama Station.
