Himeji: there's the castle, of course... but also a zoo, which offers a safari experience as well as an amusement park and nautical center.
Himeji Central Park is a great recreational center for families. This zoo offers the safari experience by car or by foot. An amusement park, a nautical center, an ice rink and restaurants complete this pleasant park. In short, it is a modern park that offers a great alternative to the traditional castle and gardens of the city, if you are traveling with children.
At Himeji Central Park you can ride a Safari Bus or take a private car into the middle of wild animals roaming free in their natural habitat.
All kinds of birds and animals are waiting to be discovered during a walking safari in this green park. Even the most rare species such as white tigers and white lions, red pandas and capybaras are here. You can feed animals like giraffes or Hokkaido brown bears, and take beautiful pictures during your safari walk. Kids love petting farm animals, goats, sheep, or having a pony ride. For a great view, take the free Sky Safari cable car that offers panoramic views of the park.
