This zoo is in Nogeyama Park (Nogeyama Comprehensive Park), with a view of Minato Mirai. There are over 90 different species kept in this zoo, and the concept of the exhibitions in the zoo is for guests to be able to see the animals up close. In Nakayoshi Square, you can pet small animals like guinea pigs and mice. If you wish to enter the area with a group of more than 30 people, a reservation is required in advance. There is a feeding time for animals every day that guests can observe along with an explanation from the zoo keeper. There is also a free resting area and a cafe that serves light meals in the zoo. With facilities such as Yokohama City Central Library nearby, the zoo is a spot you can drop in on as a part of a leisurely stroll. Admission is free. It's a 15-minute walk from JR Negishi Line or Yokohama Municipal Subway Sakuragicho Station.
