Just as its name implies in Japanese, the zoo is located on a hill overlooking the city of Kiryu. The zoo was first opened in 1916. It emcompasses about a 6.1 hectare area. In the zoo there are lions, an elephant, giraffes, zebras, flamingoes, penguins, monkeys, a variety of snakes and a large aquarium along with a whole host of other domestic and exotic animals.

The park is particularly beautiful when the cherry trees and azaleas are in bloom in the springtime. During theses seasons many families and groups visit the zoo. Entrance to the zoo is free of charge. At the entrance to the zoo there are many shops and stalls selling snacks and souvenirs. This zoo is well-known in the Kanto area.
