Maruyama Zoo makes for the perfect day out for the kids. Set in the idyllic surroundings of Maruyama Park , it has the feel of being miles from the city, yet it is only four subway stops away from the action. Gathered here are all the usual characters you would expect in any zoo—chimps, elephants, camels and lions—but it is the penguins that pull the most visitors. Within the grounds of the zoo there is another attraction—Kid Land—an amusement park for children of all ages. Check website for admission prices.
