Fuji Safari Park4.3
Fuji Safari Park located in Susono city at the base of Mount Fuji is the largest safari park in Japan. You can see Sub-Saharan African animals, such as lions, giraffes and rhinos, from the comfort of your car or from a jungle bus which has netting over the windows so you can feed the animals. The view of Mount Fuji offers a great background to the vast grounds.
The safari area is divided into seven zones - bears, lions, tigers, cheetahs, elephants, grazing animals, and mountain animals. You will see a lot of signs around warning "DANGER" or "Never get out of your car." There is also a petting zoo area, where you can walk and feed directly to animals, such as kangaroos and deer.

Fun park to see wildlife up close from the comforts of your own car. Road to the park can get very crowded especially during Golden Week and Obon holidays. Make sure to give yourself enough time or the activities will be very limited. If you want to play with animals do it before 430pm. This is when they close this kind of attraction.
Park also charges for every kind of "attraction" too so be prepared to pay 500 yen here and there. Plus 100 yen to feed the animals.
Didn't ride the Jungle bus as we arrived late and already sold out. However seems fun as you get to feed the animals. Extra cost too about 1300 yen per person.

We drove ourselves and it was a wonderful experience! You really do get to see the animals up close. Note that there is also a walking trail separate from the driving route. The website suggested to spend 50 minutes, but we spent almost 2 hours in total for both trails.

Interesting concept where you can drive your car into the safari, i have never been to such safari zoos. It's abit slow because you have to queue using your car if it's crowded. I used a rental car and had no issues with it. Mostly all African animals like lions, elephants, zebras, giraffes. You can see Mt Fuji in the background on a clear day and it's worth a photo with the animals. Of course safety is do not open your doors or windows when in the park.

Comparatively cheap when booked over the internet beforehand. Completely crowded, so best to enter first in the morning. Enough to spend a whole day.
