Nogeyama Zoo is a public park that includes a zoo, a Japanese garden, and broad tree-lined promenades. The Nogeyama Zoo has more than 1,500 animals, mammals, birds and reptiles representing at least 250 species. The bear cage and elephant compound are two of the more popular attractions. There is a traditional Japanese garden that is reminiscent of court gardens in Kyoto. The Japanese garden has a carp pond, complete with brightly colored koi. In spring the garden is bright with pink sakura (Japanese cherry blossoms) and yellow azaleas. Tree-lined lanes circle the park. Admission is free, making the Nogeyama Zoo one of Yokohama's most popular sightseeing spots.
