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 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...

Highly recommend visiting Nogeyama Zoo! My family of four including two young children under ten had a great time looking at all of the animals and walking through the zoo (which feels like a park). The best bit of all was the petting area where children were able to hold, stroke and play with various animals including mice, Guinea pigs... More

This is completely free and open to public. But its quality is really high! There are various kinds of animals like lesser panda, penguin, giraffe and some big birds. Also, there is the space where people can touch small animals such as hamster and ferret.

It is interesting that a place that requires quite a lot of upkeep is free. I did enjoy seeing the animals, however, some of the enclosures were quite small for the larger animals (lion, tiger, bears, zebra and giraffe). Also, this means that there is less space for them to play. The enclosures were all clean (but for the larger... More
