Summertime Night Zoo

START: Aug 3, 2013 END: Aug 31, 2013

Spend a summer’s night with animals big and small! The “Night Zoo” event returns again this year every Saturday of August. After closing as usual at 17:00, the Zoo will reopen at 18:00 until 21:00. Take the chance to observe nocturnal animals in their element. Resident zoo keepers will also be on hand to give talks about the animals at special spots. Don’t forget to visit the adjoining Botanical Garden to witness the unique sight of nocturnal flowers that bloom only at night! A free shuttle bus will run between the Sakurazaka and Dobutsuen-mae bus stops from 17:50 onwards, and bus riders will receive a 20% discount on admission. (The last bus leaves the zoo at 21:10.)
