The 800 square kilometers that make up the giant wildlife theme park of Wakayama Adventure World is a fun destination for a family day out. With a safari park, zoo, aquarium, amusement park, and the famous Panda Land, there is enough to keep you entertained for the entire day.
- The popular giant panda family
- Observing animals roam freely in the safari zone
- The dolphin and sea lion shows
- Rollercoasters, go-karts and other fun-packed rides
A distinguishing feature of this park is that many of the animals roam the grounds freely. Wander around with flamingos, capybara, and other docile creatures. Be sure to bring a camera for a memorable selfie!
Given the vast size of the park, tackling it all on foot can be a challenge. The park has come up with a speedy (and fun) solution by providing small golf carts for guests to buzz around in. They are available for use in the Safari World area and the only requirement is a valid Japanese or international driving license. If you don't have a license, enjoy exploring the park by foot, bus, train or bicycle.
The park's Play Zone is a fun-packed area that includes a go-kart track, multiple roller coasters and a Ferris wheel with fantastic views of the ocean.
Wakayama Adventure World is easily accessible by bus from Shirahama Station (20 minutes) and Nanki-Shirahama Airport (five minutes).
