Really nice zoo to visit. Great surroundings and animals look well kept for the most part. Lions cage a bit small but may have been undergoing renovations. Not easy to get to from Yokohama-koen. Took a bus but takes a good hour

Nogeyama Zoo is old style zoo. That is... small cages and small site. But it has some advantage points. 1. Admission free 2. Very close to the station. It takes only 10min on foot from the nearest station (Hinodecho, Keikyu line). 3. Its site is so small that you can walk around in 2hrs. But you can watch the "Brand... More

Been to the Nogeyama Zoo and spent half a day there. Unlike other part of the world, here entry was free and the zoo was maintained and organized very well. A great place to spend time in Yokohama.

This is a nice treat if you visit Yokohama. The zoo is free and it is layed out really good. When entering you can pickup a map of the zoo to plan your route so you see what you would like too. Their penguin part is really good.

This was a nice zoo. Some of the animals are unique to Japan zoos. The petting zoo exhibit was nice with lots of mice, Guinea pigs, and grown chickens.

We had a great time in this free zoo! Our little two years son had the chance to see one of his favourite animals for real: the crocodile! A very nice experience was touching the animals: there is a place where some very nice zoo keepers explain to little children theblife of hamsters and chickens, then they make touching them... More

The zoo is free, but I don't think that justifies the condition the animals live in. I love zoos, I have been to zoos every place I go, and this by far was the worst zoo I have been to when it came to the quality of life for the animals. Many of the cages/enclosures were dirty. Some of the... More

This zoo is a disgrace the conditions of the enclosures are terrible. I didn't stay for long as I found it upsetting and to all the people on here proclaiming about how great the zoo is because it's free, I would much more prefer to pay towards contributing towards a natural environment for the animals to enjoy than this so...
