Oji Zoo (Kobe)

Yesterday was fine and not too sunny, the perfect weather for a visit to the zoo!

We chose Oji zoo in Kobe and it took about 40minutes from our house to get there. The entrance fee is reasonable, just 600yen for adults and kids are free!!

Despite the heat, we were able to see most animals, my favorite (the giraffes) and Yoshi`s favorite (the elephants). Aiden liked the huge bears and was able to come face-to-face with one through just a few centimetres of glass!

Others we saw?? Polar bears, a giant panda, a lesser panda, small alligators, lizards, turtles, gorillas, chimps, zebras, koalas, kangaroos and wallabies, ostriches and emus, and the animals in the petting zoo (sheep, a goat and a goose).

There is also an area with rides for little kids;

Such fun!!

note - the zoo is closed on Wednesdays.


  1. Absolutely love your photos. I have a cheeky request... is it possible to please please make them big so that you and your beautiful family fill the screen. Matchbook size so doesn't do you gorgeous lot enough justice :) Told you it was a cheeky request ;) Have a happy weekend Fran X

    1. Hehehehe!! That is a cute request. I made them medium instead of small and will continue to do so. Thanks for your message xx

  2. Adorable! I live right near the Kobe zoo. Aiden is the cutest, and you seem like a great mom.
    I'm adding you to my blog list at http://openprivatelife.blogspot.jp/ if you don't mind.
    Take care!
