Not sure why everyone is up at arms for the treatment of the animals. None seemed upset or agitated and I've seen smaller cages in the states. It's a good day trip and free. The petting zoo is a plus and wait around until they make the mice go home on the ropes in the area.

The animals in this zoo are in such poor condition, in particular the lion and tiger which barely have enough room to turn around in their cage as it's only a few foot deep! Many of the animals show signs of metal stress from boredom and small cages. Visiting this zoo only made me feel sorry for the animals. Yes... More

This is a small but quite nice zoo. No entry fee completely free. 2-3 hours is enough to see and enjoy this zoo.

Aside from the Red Panda, I always stop by the reptile house, which has 3 small crocs and other dangerous things (safely caged). And I love watching the Humboldt Penguins splashing around. The lion and tiger are a bit confined, and the simians, also go a bit crazy at times, probably for similar reasons but the grazing animals such as... More

Well it is free to enter this zoo. This place is set up as a retirement place for older animals from other zoos that need extra care. Looks poor and is locally funded by the City of Yokohama.

Japan usually does zoos very well, but Nogeyama is an exception to this rule. The enclosures are just too small for the animals. If you love animals, you will find Nogeyama depressing. Yes, I'm sure many of these animals were rescued and the fact that they are living a quiet life in a Japanese zoo is better than if they'd... More

It's an old zoo - the original one in Yokohama. It's very laid back, rarely crowded, close to good transport, and best of all, its completely free. It also has parks connected and good places to sit and have a snack lunch, so it's a pretty chill place to bring kids. Especially as there is a petting-zoo-type thing where you... More
