Tohoku Safari Park is home to some kawaii (cute) and kowai (scary) animals you can enjoy from the comfort of your own car. Have a close encounter with the white lions, ride an elephant, or feed a giraffe. Above all, capture the face to face memories with your camera.

Tohoku Safari Park is located in Nihonmatsu, Fukushima Prefecture. Easy access by driving or a twenty minute bus ride from Nihonmatsu Station. Keep in mind you'll need someone that can drive to enjoy this attraction. Rental cars available onsite.​
