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.

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.

Amusement park with safari. You can drive your own car or use the bus. Walking safari included in the price. Skating in the winter and water park in the summer. Great to visit with children. Never crowded.

Fun but a bit expensive. Loved the doggy show! Beautiful view from the ferris wheel.
