Outline of Maruyama Zoo

Outline of Maruyama Zoo Information

 

Maruyama Zoo was established in 1951, on May 5th (Children's Day) as the 1st zoo in Hokkaido. It houses about 200 species, about 1,000 animals. Located at the foot of Mt.Maruyama, blessed with beauty of nature. This area is quite close to the city center of Sapporo.

Besides animals popular among children such as tigers, giraffes, hippos etc., you also find "Tropical-animal-house" where you can observe them close by, and "Bear-house" with 6 different kinds bears like Polar bears or Malay bears. In "Reptile house", you can learn the living-style of many rare kinds of them.

The biggest appealing point of Maruyama Zoo is to enjoy "Good relationship with Animals". Here are many chances for you to experience exciting time with animals. For instance, in the "Kid's Zoo", you can try feeding squirrel monkies or touching guinea pigs, rabbits or other small attractive ones. In "Kangaroo house" you can enjoy "body contact" with wallabies or kangaroos. In front of the outdoor-stage, you can also watch kites fly just close by, or you can experience the traditional art of manipulating birds of prey, (takasho) falconer by yourselves.

As to the daily events or "experience" details, make sure on the Home Page of the zoo. To offer you recreation facilities, "Observation Rest House" was built just next to "Monkey Mountain" with a good view of monkeys acting lively, playfully in front of you. On the first floor, there are some areas, such as "PictureBooks-booth" and "Climbers'Wall". You also can relax on hammock comfortably. On the 2nd floor, this is a lounge for the visitors to take a rest, bringing in something to eat.
