Meet the inhabitants of Noboribetsu Bear Park, an animal observation facility located at the summit of the mountain. Separated by age and sex, the 200 brown bears here have been raised in the facility, with the institution growing from a population of just eight in 1958. Head into the "cage for humans" to see the bears from their own perspective, and feed them salmon and meatballs, which you can buy on site. A museum reveals the history of brown bears on the island, their behavior in the wild, and their cultural importance to the indigenous population.

  • Located on top of a hill, the ride up was beautiful with the autumn view. Best to get 2 Park tickets that cost less for foreigners €4400 adults & ¥2300 for kids up to 12 years old. Plenty of exciting bears up close. Can buy bear biscuit onsite to feed them. There are also bear shows and the view from the top was breathtaking. Can see the lake and sea at the same time. Great place to bring kids. It can get cold so prepare a jacket.
  • Loved it! A little cable car is bringing you up, the ride and the view was beautiful. The bears are hilarious and cute. There is a detailed description of each of them, describing their characters - they are adorable. You can buy snacks and feed them from far away. Osusume!
