The Fuji Safari Park (富士サファリパーク) is a wildlife park on the southern slopes of Mount Fuji where visitors can take a safari through the simulated habitats of freely roaming animals, including lions, tigers, bears, giraffes, cheetahs, elephants, rhinoceroses, zebras and bison. It is one of the largest and most popular safari parks in Japan.
I went to the safari by my own car.The car ride from the Hakone to Mt. Fuji Safari park took about 1hr and 20 mins and you will pass by Gotemba Premium outlet if you are keen on visiting the branded 'factory outlet' in Japan.
The zoo is pretty interesting if this is your first time to a "drive-thru" zoo. The open-zoo concept is simple, you sit in the comfort of your own car and stay as long as you like but make sure you don't wind down your car windows! We did not take any of the buses above but drove our rental car into the Safari Park.
At the end of the car ride, you can disembark and visit the Children's zoo where you can watch mini horses racing against one another or you can feed the 'always hungry' kangaroos. This is a place where you can spend at least 2 hours if you have kids.
This place is enroute from Hakone to Lake Kawaguchi near Mt Fuji.
