Get Up and Close to Ferocious Animals at Nasu Safari Park in Japan🦁
A safari experience, in Japan?!
JAPANKURU would like to introduce a really cool and fun place among Nasu's zoo series!
A place where you can ride in cool animal themed vans among animals
that is only an hour and a half from Tokyo!
Nasu Safari Park
When you come to Nasu Safari Park, you can choose between "MY CAR" (driving your own car),
"RENTAL" (renting a safari car) and the really cool "LION BUS"!
Although you can still open your windows and feed the animals
through the gaps of cars if you choose to drive,
if you take the sightseeing bus you can get up close and personal to the animals,
animals like fierce lions and tigers!
If you want to get the full excitement of being around these animals and feeding them,
we recommend choosing a sightseeing bus!
The sightseeing bus will take about 40-50 minutes to visit,
while the weekdays will start in about 30-40 minutes,
and the weekends and holidays will be 20-30 minutes.
Which means there will be a lot of people waiting to hop on.
To make things cooler, there is also a Night Safari offered!
