  • It was my first time to take my children with me, so I was really looking forward to it. Because it was a weekday, it was vacant, and because I entered the park at the same time as opening, the baby panda was able to see well. The penguin pavilion was very cold, but the feeding of the sea otters was very cute, and it was very interesting to take the food stuck to the wall by hand. The safari park was also very excited with the children, as the tigers were walking in the immediate vicinity of the bus. At the end, i went to the dog's petting corner, but the dogs were lying on the ground in hot weather. The child was gently patting the dog, but when he went to another dog, he thought the dog would be stepped on by the attendant. It was noted with strong words that frightened the child. The staff member was about to step on it, so keep an eye on it. And it is understandable to note the parents. But if you can't trust your child, don't let the little one. I want you to say. To be clear, I felt bad. The entrance fee was high, and it was far from Hyogo Prefecture, and i was disappointed with the attitude of the staff, so I did not want to come again this time.

  • I stayed at Nanki Shirahama, so I went to adventure world nearby because it was a weekday, so it was empty. I am impressed that the penguin greets me by swimming immediately after entering. The safari zone and amusement park zone were many and enjoyed. There were a lot of animals in the safari zone.

  • So much to see. Great Dolphin show. The pandas are amazing. Never seen so many pandas in one place. To avoid crowds, go on weekday. Free admission on your birthday.
  • This is a fun all-day destination! The admission is a bit high, but worth the cost. My 2-year old was free and I paid a children's admission for the 5-year old. We watched two shows (included with your admission). The dolphin show was fantastic! Also included with your admission is the safari ride, a nice bonus. There are several places to eat with both indoor and outdoor seating. One drawback is that the rides are extra. You can purchas tickets by the ride or get an unlimited pass. We chose the unlimited. If you have young children make sure your child is tall enough to ride. My 2- year old was only able to go on a few rides and there were some rides where a parent had to ride with my 5-year old (2 passes will be required). Aside from the extra cost for the rides, this will be a very fun day!
