Miyazaki City Phoenix Zoological park


This zoo contains 1,400 specimens of 155 different animal species such as the Asian elephant, chimpanzee and lion.

This zoo also has become the forerunner in Japan for “heterogeneous breeding” of giraffe, zebra, ostrich, etc. There are events where you can interact with small animals such as Tokara goats and rabbits, as well as a brilliant flamingo show, which are gaining increasing popularity with visitors.

There is also an amusement park, pool (summer only) and restaurants.
