  • There are many people who mistake it as a king penguin, but in fact, emperor penguins are only two places in Japan, but there are only emperors in Nagoya Port, but there is a king here, so you can see the difference between a king and an emperor. Moreover, it is an extremely valuable facility only here that it succeeds in breeding, and how many people have seen the real thing though it is thought that there are a lot of people who think of the gray two-tone color of hina of the penguin? In fact, you can only see it here, and it is a limited time time when hina was born by all means in october ~ please check the situation 2019 is already born, by the way, the king's chicks are brown all over the body and grow as big as parents That's cute, too.

  • When i came at half past ten, there was a big traffic jam just before the entrance. There are already a great number of cars in the parking lot. I can't believe it's so popular. The park was also very crowded. And, it is accomplished so much that it is likely to be able to do with this panda of a total of six. Especially, the one-year-old panda's yui-hin was lovely. Admission is 4,500 for adults, 2,500 safari trains for children, and fun for Kenya. It's pretty crowded though. I think the rotation is good. The food court, the restaurant, the crowd, i couldn't sit down. There is an aquarium, there is an amusement park, there is a panda, and it is a place where you can spend the day.

  • 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!
