のいち動物公園おすすめポイント (Why must visit Noichi Zoological Park?)

”人も動物もいきいきと”のテーマで作られたアフリカのサバンナを体感しよう (Have a experience of Savanna zone based on the theme ” where both people and animals have a good time ” )


As much as possible Noichi zoo eliminated cages and fences, and recreate the animals natural habitats with plants and rocks, etc. Once you step into Savanna zone, you can observe Reticulated giraffes and Grant’s zebras are elegantly walking right in front of you. There is no doubt that you will be overwhelmed by the animals that live gracefully in a position you can reach.

絶滅危惧種のハシビロコウに会いに行こう ( Let’s meet rare bird, Shoebill Stork! )


Shoebill stork is famous as a big bird (the high is 110cm~140cm) who doesn’t fly. There are only 8 zoos you can meet Shoebill stork in Japan including Noichi Zoological Park of Kochi Prefecture. It is said that the total number of shoebills raised in zoos around the world is 40 to 50. And if we think that 15 of them are raised in Japanese zoo means Japanese love to meet them, am I right? That was true that she would not move a lot…because we couldn’t have a chance to take nice picture of her!( not coming near to us.)

ピクニック広場でのんびり過ごそう (Just relax at Picnic Area)

Wonder Safari


Inside the zoo, there is picnic area with playground ” Wonder Safari “, ” Fluffy Dome “, etc. Kids can enjoy not only watching animals but also playing on the grass. You can’t imagine from the picture how much fun to jump on Fluffy Dome….Luckily I could enjoy it with my kids!

Fluffy Dome

動物科学館で体を使いながら動物について学ぼう (Let’s study animals while using your body at Animal Science Museum)


People say that to learn with fun is important. I totally agree with it. You and your kids can learn about animals while using your body here. Kids can’t stop playing here easily. Good thing for parents is there are seats to wait for your kids finish playing here.

こどもたちのための動物公園に行こう ( Let’s visit Noichi Zoological Park for kids! )


The entry fee of Zoo is ¥470 for adults per pax but below 18 years old, it’s free! Parking lot is also free! As of now unfortunately due to Covid 19 Pandemic, we are not able to enjoy with guinea pigs or animal feeding times or some of other activities. However without those activities, we can still see animals with natural habitats with plants, rocks, ponds, etc makes us satisfy with it.



Noichi Zoological Park of Kochi Prefecture was chosen as #1 Zoo in Japan by travel lovers ( researched by trip adviser ) in 2020. Compare to other famous zoo in big cities, less animals but Noichi could create the environment where animal should live more than others. How about having a experience like we visite the places where animals live in real?
