Nihondaira Zoo, Shizuoka

(4.4/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • Spring break even on weekdays so no congestion. There are Lion in close to the glass. I recommend eating here climbed by ropeway station Plaza Vista very well, if you bring your lunch. Elementary school students in the longest slider is happiest. I took 2 times cheaper (^ ^)

  • Childhood, was taken by the parents alone, was long and evacuates saw opportunity after the renewal in recent years, sometimes. Panda is not good at heat, so end up only outdoors during the summer along with other animals, if anything is recommended for winter. Panda snack from the 11:20 is not to be missed!

  • 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.
  • Nice place to see.
  • Escalating action display beast Hall is renovated, the spectacular. Especially recommended is the lesser Panda Hall, the fling mega Dome, Penguin Hall. Multilayer a fierce Hotel 299 hide animals on the chance of seeing animals from various angles in composite animal cages, each one of narrow but not very often causing the dynamic behavior of stress too seen either for the individual. Lossy polar bear has a particularly terrible behaviour. Seem hard, for example, or for the construction of the building were the keepers put stress how products such as toys, seem large animal stress than others. Indoor exhibition halls of the Siberian Tiger and Jaguar, 寝koroberu adult one of extremely narrow ones especially. Admission is other than higher. For admission number for ticket sales less well to crowds. The price of higher parking fees. Must make a long detour ago the parking structure for the deteriorated convenience prior to renovation. Front gate parking lot requires attention for prepayment.

  • Lossy in the polar bear is a famous Zoo. You can enjoy very fierce hotel, Panda Hotel. Because it doesn't take time for exploring the zoo itself is relatively compact, but tend to slope stroller required for families with small children. In diaper changing area, but restrooms are like that can wait a little bit, because there are too many. Restaurants in one place, the menu very much rich in is not. Pousse rice for street vendors had square front entrance and front of the restaurant, children's rides, very good food menu looks good.

  • Place to go well. Years pay if I go four times a path. Done many times many times to watch than when I was a kid I was feel appeal, so too would never get bored. My kids will go any excursion. In animals with the charm really healed.
