Nihondaira Zoo, Shizuoka

(4.4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Located on the hill, Nihondaira Zoo offers a great opportunity to spend a fun, relaxing day with the family. The zoo has two sections: the indoor area, with turtles and penguins, and the outdoor part, with larger animals, such as bears and elephants. Still in the process of redevelopment, as it’s one of the oldest zoos in the area, and not very large, the zoo has knowledgeable staff who take good care of the animals. You can take the kids to see and pet farm animals, such as chickens and bunnies, at the petting zoo.

  • Was super hungry so I went to the daytime on weekdays. 1 year-went 2 times, admission: adults thought 610 Yen parking fee of 610 Yen offers at least half a day, so is the son not walking in one go also good?. Training begins with 13:15 the elephant was a surprise may have been well trained. This is the best thing for. Also excellent swimming, swimming of penguins had no opportunity to see so much ever since.  Without open and wait for contact with rabbit, enjoyed the Sun two times. Diet recommended is the polar bear Curry.

  • The grandson came when we went together. From the parking lot to the entrance but not-so-distant, and admission is ¥ 610 610 yen, and parking is good. Twist is seen in the zoo animals from many different angles, but adults can enjoy fully. Son grows a little bit more lift and amusement park ride would like to go to the top of the mountain.
