Japan's southernmost full-scale zoo with a children's science museum!

Established in 1972, Okinawa Zoo is Japan's southernmost full-scale zoo. It includes giraffes, elephants, hippos, and other popular animals, and they also exhibit animals unique to Okinawa. The children's science museum―Wonder Museum―is Okinawa's first museum for kids where children (and of course adults as well) can enjoy learning about science. The facility also includes a Children's Center that focuses on volunteer work.

The zoo occasionally holds traditional Ryukyu horse racing, which is said to have a history of about 300 years starting from the Ryukyu Kingdom era up until the period before World War II.
At the museum, special exhibits, events, and workshops are held based on themes of science, art, and philosophy to stimulate the minds of children.
Then, during the summer season, visitors can experience "Satur-zoo Night" when the zoo is open until 9:00 pm every Saturday, so you have a rare chance to see how the animals behave at night.
