Ostrich Kingdom Ibaraki
Outdoor | Avg price: ¥1000 | English Available: None (Unknown)
A surprisingly fun day out - we loved it here!
If you have kids and they are all about animals - or if you just want a great escape from the city and urban life, head out to the Ostrich Kingdom in Ibaraki. It's about a 90 minute drive from Tokyo proper, and will give you that taste of country life and an opportunity to interact with a bunch of animals. As the name suggests, the main feature of this animal park are the ostriches - but there are so many other animals there too that you can interact with - chicks, alpacas, capybara, the list goes on. You're able to buy bags of feed, if you want to feed the ostriches - which is a fun activity but I wouldn't recommend it for real little ones - the ostriches can be rather aggressive when they know food is at the ready! All in all it's a great experience and one of our favorite animal encounters we have had in Japan - fun for the whole family!
