By riding a bus or a private car, visitors of Gunma Safari Park can have a close encounter in over 1,000 animals that roam the grounds such as lions, tigers, elephants, giraffes, different species of birds and many more.
Opened in May 1979, it is considered as the first safari park in Eastern Japan. As much as possible, the animals in the park are being kept in their natural habitat. So, expect the animals in their ordinary lives.
Feeding the animals must be the highlight of the visit of the park from the bus tour. If you're visiting the park with your own private car, you can rent a guided radio telling about the animals with Japanese and English version.
The recommended transportation to the park is via taxi ride, which would normally cost 2500 Yen. In addition, you can take a train from the Joshin Dentetsu Line and get off at Jyoshu Tomioka Station.
The park opens at 9:30 to 17:00 during March to October and 9:30 - 16:30 during November to February. It is closed every Wednesday but the park is open if Wednesday falls on a holiday.
Admission fee is 2,700 Yen for adults and 1,300 for children. If you are driving with your own car, their is an additional fee for 500 Yen per person while the bus tour is 1,300 yen per person.
