Nihondaira Zoo, Shizuoka

4.3
#2 of 19 in Parks in Shizuoka
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. Make Nihondaira Zoo a part of your Shizuoka vacation plans using our Shizuoka route maker tool .

  • Way better! But you cannot compare asahiyama becomes a topic well, but I've not really exhibit how is good at. So even with admission 600 Yen! You seem think that average as the Zoo is more than I could pay. Polar bear silly sometimes, Pumas and tigers closer is the best.

  • Children's summer went by families. No. 1 car arrived at 9 o'clock and was worried about parking and crowding, but also a time there was a Friday, or could place to park. And the cost is nothing else good!! worth the amount or types of ︎ animals such as. Walking inside the Park, to get around what exactly is wonderful.

  • Introduction to see beast Hall 299""Jaguar"and"Amur tiger". The Jaguar is here for a while was the only "black freak" arashi single is "rabbit-child Assistant" you (2016 students) came to 7/2017 from Osaka municipal tennoji Zoo. I think beside the left ear of the heart-shaped pattern, so will become a popular. The Amur tiger "Fuji" female "Nana" (student, 1999) and his son (2010 students) of cannot be seen only in the morning for the elderly "Nana" are two. You can see "Fuji" from opening until closing, but especially in the summer afternoon "bathing" and 3:00 PM attractions is eating too much. Who could look happens to be spotted is bathing in the afternoon on the hottest day of the summer, but any rate depending on the mood of the "Fuji", so seems very lucky. I think answer keeper commentary can be seen past the 3:00 PM meal, so if you have questions. You are what you eat by the way I write. In listening to the commentary, or look for Zoo website.

  • Compact, but there are many rare small animal. You can enjoy here.
  • A nice small zoo - I say it's especially good for kids. It's well kept up, with a friendly staff and volunteers. The exhibits were a mix between some older, and some very modern. Perhaps they're phasing out some of the animals, as they and their exhibits seemed old- the elephants, for example. Overall, I enjoyed my visit.
  • Ok
  • Nice place to see.
  • I visited 6/18/2017! Very spacious parking lot Sunday, was parked! From above like dome very broadly into the world of birds, Aquarium, Zoo or from the bottom and also OLI cylindrical Aquarium reptile animals nocturnal and also many attractions and bench or floor to play, such as footprints in the playful, put a human!
