You can enjoy various sights of the Himeji castle and sit around the park and have a picnic. It's best to visit on a sunny day so you can walk around the park and admire the scenery!

Everything you see in the travel mags!! Beautiful plant life, cats sleeping under the trees (yes you read right cats) Koi swimming in the garden lakes make for a magic and tradition experience. Simply put stunning.

Japanese zoos are often cramped and surrounded by urbanisation but Himeji Central Park Safari is spacious and good for the animals. At the petting zoo you can pet wallabies. If you want to hold guinea pigs they will be served to you in a wicker...More
