Nihondaira Zoo, Shizuoka

4.4
#2 of 24 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 .

  • From the Observatory located in the highest point of the Zoo Zoo feel views of Mt. Fuji and Shizuoka city and the Pacific Ocean.

  • Has long since made the beast House 299 (from paws? ) Is very nice. My best is a polar bear! It is advisable to get there early because parking is crowded, go in the evening.

  • While pushing a stroller around is just a good size. Children also enjoyed. There were many children on a school trip.
