Nihondaira Zoo, Shizuoka

4.4
#2 of 19 in Parks in Shizuoka
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
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.

  • 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
