Hitachi Kamine Park
Zoo and amusement park spread across the gentle hills along the Pacific Ocean
Hitachi Kamine Park has a superb view overlooking the city accompanied by a pleasant ocean breeze. From early to mid-April, around 1,000 cherry blossom trees planted throughout the park bloom in unison. The vast park includes Kamine Leisure Land, which features attractions like roller coasters and a large Ferris wheel; Kamine Yuenchi amusement park for smaller children with a Ferris wheel and merry-go-round; and Hitachi City Kamine Zoo featuring a reptile house that opened in 2018. This is a great leisure spot which families of all ages can enjoy.
Interact with animals at Hitachi City Kamine Zoo
One of the largest zoos in the northern Kanto region, Hitachi City Kamine Zoo provides opportunities to interact and feel close to various animals. Pet rabbits and guinea pigs, and even feed snacks to elephants and giraffes. In addition to housing staple zoo inhabitants such as hippopotamuses, lions, flamingos, and rhinoceroses, the zoo takes care of allowing animals to live freely through various measures, such as the Monkey Paradise where monkeys liberally move about through the air. Be sure to visit the reptile house opened in 2018. During the cherry blossom season, the park is bursting with pink blossoms. It is recommended to visit along with the Hitachi Cherry Blossom Festival held near Hitachi Station.
