October 26 @ 15:00 - October 27 @ 20:00

Tobu Zoo Halloween

Tobu Zoo Halloween 2019 – On the nights of October 26th and 27th Tobu Zoo is holding its annual Halloween Night party.

Until 2016 children aged between 3 and 6 years old who come in costume were permitted for free. Since 2017, that is now open to anyone who arrives after 3 pm in costume will get into the zoo and park for free. You have to be in proper costume though; a halloween hat will not suffice! They stipulate that the costume must have a minimum of two pieces. They have the rest of the conditions on their website.

Winter illumination

Tobu Zoo will start their annual illumination on the 26th too, so you can enjoy the popular winter illumination until 8 pm on the nights of the Halloween celebrations. The winter illumination is only available on weekends, bank holidays and a couple of other special dates.

Last year the Tobu zoo winter illumination was said to be the largest in Kanto. It starts around 5 pm and it will run until closing time, which is extended to 8 pm during the illumination and Halloween season. From December 23rd to 25th the illumination and the zoo run until 9 pm. The winter illumination will run until February.
