Birds, flowers and alpacas!

  • Animal Appreciation

The Kobe Animal Kingdom is a large indoor flower and animal themed park which houses many unique and rare species of plants, animals, and birds.

It is located on Kobe’s artificially made “Port Island” and it can be accessed via Port Liner to the K-Computer Mae Station. Just outside of the station, you will notice a large wooden building, this is the theme park!

The price is ¥1500 (JPY) per adult and ¥800 (JPY) per child. There are also discounts for students, people with disabilities and for the elderly.

When you first enter the park, you will be stunned by the beautiful array of flowers that are displayed in the first greenhouse room. There are many species of plants and flowers displayed all over as well as on the ceiling. This room also offers a petting zoo for small animals which many kids can enjoy. There is a petting zoo for dogs and cats, as well as rabbits. Across this room there is a magnificent bird room which features many species of birds flying freely. The rest of the park features more rooms where animals such as kangaroos, capybaras, llamas, alpacas and other animals are roaming freely so you can enjoy taking pictures and playing with them. There are also several bird shows during the day, and the park features one of the largest owl collections in the world, so it is definitely a must see.
