Himeji Central Park in the northeast of the city of Himeji is a theme park that comprises a safari and an amusement park. The site has an expansive 200 hectares, offering safari experience by drive-through and on foot to view animals in natural environment. There is also the 'sky safari' which takes you up in the sky to view the wildlife from the gondola.

The amusement section has two roller coasters, a Ferris wheel. The swimming pool is open during the summer and a display of some 1,000 fireworks can be viewed each weekend. The skating rink is available during the winter months. The park is surrounded by mountains with fresh air and is a good family resort that people of all ages can enjoy.

DO NOT GO to this place. It's a rip off. Even though the attractions are listed as separate, you are required to buy a ¥3600 yen ticket and then buy Individual tickets to the safari. You are also required to buy individual tickets to the ice skating even if you don't go to the amusement park. All in all a family of four will spend ¥15000 for attractions you don't use.

We are Japanese native speakers so it's not a language limitation issue. It's simply not stated on the website.

A fantastic family day out (family of four, children 6 and 2).
Went on a Friday and aside from a few school groups, both the safari park and amusement park were very very quiet. I imagine it gets much busier in on the weekends/school breaks.

Were able to drive around the safari at a leisurely pace and stop to see many animals. It is the perfect size and takes about 30 mins to get around.

The amusement park is a little old but we all had a great time. My 6-year old son is over 120cm so could go on almost all the rides (aside from a couple of the larger roller-coasters) and there was plenty for my youngest son to enjoy free-of-charge too.

Highly recommended.

I came to Himeji Central Park to celebrate with my family. On their website they claim that the safari bus is only ¥800. This is misadvertisment and you will only understand why once you ride 30 minutes from the city center to the park. The truth is it's a waste of time and your money. Admission for adults costs ¥36,000, and that is JUST for admission. They fail to say on the website that if you want to do anything inside the park, it costs extra. We thought at first that it was just miscommunication on their part but sure enough it was misadvertisment. This place is a scam and it's not worth your time going. There are so many other places that you can go that's worth your buck. Unless you are planning to go blow tons of money, and have enough time on your hands for when it rains (they shut down the whole park when it rains, just by the way), I don't recommend this place.

Great LOCAL Theme Park in Himeji Japan. We went on a week day during school period and hence the park was pretty much empty. It's great that all the rides are pretty much empty...it means no Queuing!!

The best theme park in the world is not those has the newest rides or prettiest rides, it is those that doesn't has to queue 😉

Like my son said...there are probably more staff in the park today than visitors!
Well worth the visit! No fighting to get on rides with rude tourist😂

This is one of the coolest things I've done in Japan. 98% of it is super ethical and such good value. If you're even in Osaka it's worth making the trip. The safari area is the main thing, there's also an amusement park but you have to pay for each ride unless you get another pass.
