Nasu Animal Kingdom 那須どうぶつ王国

animal kingdom

Nasu Animal Kingdom is the perfect place if you're tired of classic zoos. Here you can cuddle and feed the animals, attend various shows and even take a bath while admiring the largest rodents in the world lounging a few meters away!


To interact with animals

You will rarely have the opportunity to be so close to wild animals ! Several areas are open and both visitors and animals circulate freely. Do you know the capybara, or cabiaï, also called large water pig? It is a large rodent 50-60 centimeters high for one meter long, semi-aquatic and very sociable which gets along perfectly with many other animal species. You can feed them and watch them bask in the hot springs where they warm up in winter. On one of the many hills, you can greet and feed the alpacas , these friendly llama-like animals covered in a thick layer of wool.

To access the park, free shuttles (in the shape of animals, of course) run once a day on weekdays and twice on weekends. You must book in advance (no later than 5 p.m. the day before your visit) on the site or by telephone (see practical information).
