This zoo is in Yokohama ward, and is more than just a zoo; it also resembles a safari park. Fortunately for the animals, cages are really big and fences are as little as possible as to get the animals to live in an environment that is parallel to their native one.

I met my first stray cat when I went jogging in Japan. There are many domestic cats walking around (so far I have never seen a stray dog here), but strays always look different and give me different looks. That skinny cat I met had white fur, with lots of dirty stains and even some blood ones. Luckily, I could see him/her again when I went to the same spot again.

To be honest, I didn’t like Maruyama Zoo when I first went there about 15 years ago. The enclosures were small and made of concrete and the animals seemed unhappy. But the zoo has changed and is still changing. There has been a large amount of construction work to enlarge the animal's space and to improve the viewing experience.

So what do you do when your kid likes animals and you don't want her making friends with the pigeons in the park? You take her to a farm in Chiba, where she can pet bunnies and chase sheep. Yume Bokujo is one such place in Narita.

It is not unheard of to travel to Nagano to see the Snow Monkeys stewing in the local hot springs or onsen, or to head to Zenkouji temple, but the throng of dinosaur statues in the Dinosaur park leading up to the Chausuyama zoo may just have trumped the lot.

Surprisingly, animal cafes, or the concept of a café or restaurant where you dine with a feathered or furry friend, isn’t originally from Japan but Taiwan. Still, there’s no denying it’s the Japanese that launched the idea into the mainstream, and we can thank the popularity of cat/reptile/bird cafés in Tokyo for the range of popup animal cafés across Europe, America and beyond.

Located within the larger Joshin'etsu National Park, inside of Nagano Prefecture, Jigokudani Yaen-koen is seen by many as one of the must-see locations of Japan itself. 'Hell's Valley Wild Monkey Park' as it is translated, is so called because of the steep cliffs and hot water springs that erupt in the area.
