A free zoo sounds too good to be true in Tokyo, but Edogawa City Natural Zoo is just that. Not only is it free admission, the animals in the zoo impressively range from the smallest petting zoo bunnies to peregrine falcons to seals to red pandas. The zoo boasts over 30 different species of animals with detailed descriptions about habitats and behavior, so adults and children alike can learn about the animals. A short 15 minute walk from Nishi-Kasai Station, Edogawa City Natural Zoo is a part of the greater Gyosen Park. The zoo is closed on Mondays.

Hi! I'm Karin Wu and I'm currently living and working in Tokyo. I took part in the photojournalism internship for JapanTravel in 2013, and I now contribute every so often when I can get out on the weekends. Writing is a passion of mine, and this site gives me not only an additional excuse to explore Japan but the opportunity to write about it and share with others!
