great stroll away from the crowds

There is more to Himeji than the castle, walk around the back of the castle and find koi carp, shaded walks and plenty of space

It was a surprise to find such an interesting place nestled amongst the hills in Himeji. Kids and adults will enjoy a close encounter with the wild when they take the safari. We didn't spend time at the theme park. But the safari was a wonderful experience. The kids had a great time especially with the animal feedings. It's a... More

The Safari in bus was highly enjoyable especially the close view of animals. The ropeway was also very good giving aerial view of animals. The zoo was also excellent especially feeding of Bears and elephant was thrilling. Walking throgh the enclosed area for birds was really a great experience. The Macaw was so beautiful. The Amusement park can be enjoyed... More

It is a nice park. There is a drive through safari. You can see the tigers and lions just outside your car. Afterwards, you can park the car and walk through the park to feed the animals. I won't recommend going there through public transportation since you have to walk up the hill. The entrance fee is 3100 yen for... More

It was a nice park to sit and relax for a short time. Not much there to see/do but was nice to get off the street for a short time.
