Tobu Zoo in Saitama is a zoo and rollercoaster and water park all rolled into one, located in Saitama prefecture Tobu doubtsu koen station (about 50min by train from the central Tokyo). Kids will be happy to hear that the park area includes a zoo, an amusement park, and a large pool area, in addition to playgrounds and ample grasslands.

The younger cubs were born into the limelight with a live video streaming back in 2013. But they are just one of 120 species of animals on display, which also includes lions, penguins and bears. For children, there’s a petting zoo for hands-on play with everything from docile rabbits to exotic lemurs. Tobu Zoo also has the world’s first firefly theater. Fireflies have become hard to find in urban Japan, even in the summer season, but here you can see the light of 10,000 fireflies at any time. There are also events like bird shows, pony rides and geese marches.
There is also the big wheel to the amusement park section in the east. Here you’ll find roller coasters, teacup rides and pirate ships and more than 30 other attractions. There’s also the Tobu Super Pool, a water park that opens in the summer featuring a wave pool and water rides. Here you can definitely enjoy whole day with your family! Interesting?
