Review of Nihondaira Zoo

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/10/06 Small cages, yet a big parking lot?
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...
Reviewed:2018/07/18 Small zoo but has has up close experience with animals.
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...

Nice place to see animals..
I love the polar bear and fierce animals section.

The reptile section too.

          Shizuoka Main Areas


          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
