Noboribetsu Bear Park, Noboribetsu
(2.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Noboribetsu Bear Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Noboribetsu tourist route planner.

  • The purpose of this trip was to see a polar bear. I really enjoy this trip not just seeing bears, but there were lots of animals there as well. I am not a zoo lover, but this place is definitely worth...  more »
  • We went up in a small gondola which moves all the time, but you can get on quite easily. The bear pit is concrete with 2 metal trees. I was very sad seeing the bears kept in this bare enclosure 
  •  With my family to a trip to Hokkaido stopped go. I think that contains the human bears in is look rich. I would want the food there and be funny. Duck race. Also, knowing nothing of the Ainu people is pretty interesting so far.
