  • We liked the place! Seven panda bears were fantastic! There are many other animals there, for example white tiger and kenguru. Dolphins and other animals show was nice too. The beach is very beautiful...  more »
  • This park is really great because you can closely interact with animals. I even lined up for the Dolphin Feeding and this was very nice to hold hands with them and take pictures with the Dolphin  more »
  • We visited during the winter months of the off season to avoid the crowds. For 4000 yen, this was definitely worth the price of admission. Amazing animal shows, pandas, penguins, a walking safari wher...  more »

  • Disgusting animal abuse park. Only ignorant people without consciences would enjoy this kind of "entertainment." See below.
  • Extreme good experiences for kids to have close distance interaction with animals. You can feed, understand, touch, them by different way. Rent a keep, golf-cart, on-foot, take the parks offered train etc. if you are going to rent a jeep, please make early reservations.
  • Great place to meet people who murder dolphins rip mothers from babies, then dump the babies at sea to die, all for your money. Dont support these people. #dolphinproject
  • Depressing. Poor conditions for these unlucky creatures. The backwardd and forwards pacing, and banging from the Polar Bears tops it off.
  • Good place for kids and family to watch wild animals, sea animals and play excited game
