Kobe Animal Kingdom Reviews
神戸では市立王子動物園、六甲山牧場と子どもにとっていろんな動物を見ることができる施設があるがとりわけここは動物たちとの距離が近く、目の前で、時には直接触ることまで出来るいわば「体感型動物園」と言える。最初は恐る恐るの子どもでも買える時には「楽しかったねぇ」の感想を漏らす。願わくば大人向けにほんの少しでも料金が安いあるいは各種クーポンなどの配布があればより行きやすい。 more »In Kobe, there is a facility where various animals can be seen for the city prince zoo, rokko mountain ranch, and the child, but it can be said that it is a "experience type zoo" so to speak that it is possible to touch it directly in front of the vicinity with the animal here especially here. At first, when even a frightened child can buy it, he leaks the impression of "It was fun". Hopefully it's easier for adults to get there if they have a little bit of a cheap price or a distribution of various coupons.
近場という事もあり、孫と一緒に行きました。普通の動物園と違い、動物に触れるチャンスの多い施設です。小さい子どもから高齢者まで年齢層も広く、若いカップルもよく見かけました。学術的な表示も記されています。車で行きましたが、駐車料金が1日500円というのもうれしいです。ただし、出口で払う形式で、出車に時間がかかりました。ショッピングモールでよく見かける施設内で精算できたり、入場券を購入ところで駐車料金も... more »There was a thing of the vicinity, too, and it went with the grandchild. Unlike ordinary zoos, it is a facility with many opportunities to touch animals. The age range from small children to the elderly was wide, and i often saw young couples. Academic indications are also recorded. I went by car, but i'm glad that the parking fee is 500 yen a day. However, it took a long time to get out of the car in the form of paying at the exit. I think it would be even more convenient if you could pay for the parking fee at the place where you often see it in shopping malls, or if you can pay for parking at the place where you buy a ticket. If my grandson asked me again, I'm sure i'll go.
A nice zoo where you get to see most friendly animals up close and personal. Entrance fee is 1000 yen per person and closes at 5pm. This place is kids friendly if that matters to you. I can't remember any exotic animal of sorts except some birds that are caged up. Depending on how much of a zoo person you are, the one in Hokkaido might interest you more.
A one of a kind interactive experience. The admission is a little steep, 1800 yen but well worth it. There are areas where you can pet and feed various animals including capybaras, kangaroos and penguins. They also have animal performances several times a day.
