I wish I could write a zero star revieq, because the experience was so horrible. Animals have barely any space to move, monkey cages are tiny, they barely had any space to move not to say run or jump around. Hyenas were separated, one was...More
This is a small zoo but has an up close experience with many world iconic animals. Try out the roller slide especially if you have kids. Best exhibits were the penguins, seals, polar bears, chimps, and tigers.
Nicely located in Nihondaira, it s a nice quick getaway for half a day, especially for kids. Some venues have been recently renovated.
Take the time to ride all the way to the top, to contemplate a nice overlook of Shizuoka city. They do events...More

The zoo is on the hill, recently renovated some parts. Good place to spend the day with your family. Our family loves animals, we visit Nihondaira Zoo every summer. There is a rope-way to go up the mountain where you can see a spectacular view...More
When we were there, it was drizzling and it seems that all the animals are taking shelter inside their quarters. Most of the animals enclosures are empty. So we managed to visit the indoor animals like turtles, penguin etc. The zoo closes at 4.30pm thus...More
