Access Hodosan

Hodosan Zoo

Hodosan Zoo is on the top of Mt Hodo. You can either hike up to the top of the mountain or you can use a ropeway. The zoo is a 7 minute walk from the Hodosan summit ropeway station. It is well sign posted along the way.

By foot you walk straight up from Nagatoro station (with the station at your back). It is a straight run, all uphill, until you come to the roundabout (a rarity in Japan) in front of Mt Hodo Shrine. You can either go left at the roundabout and walk along the road or use a tranquil mountain pass from the car park of Hodosan shrine. It takes about 20 to 25 minutes. If you can come by car you can park near the base station. Go left at the roundabout at the front of Hodosan shrine.
