    This safari park is located in Okamoto, Tomioka City. There’s a bus that visitors can ride and feed lions and various herbivores, as well as a night safari, a bird show, and other activities for observing the animals. There are many other intriguing sights, including the “Wild Cat World” walking safari, which lets you observe tigers, lions, and other felines up close, and the “Wolf Forest/Wolf Repopulation Center” where endangered wolves are bred and available for viewing.

    I like animals, but dont like seeing animals locked up. While the animals are not in small cages they are still enclosed in areas that arent big enoug for them to run around in they also have roads...

    Gunma Pref. Otashi Yabudukachou 3318
    This is the only research and exhibition facility in Japan which specializes in snakes. It is located approximately 10 minutes' walk from the Tobu Kiryu Line's Yabuzuka Station. Its main purpose is the research and uses of venomous snakes, and in the Venomous Snake Terrarium, visitors can see King Cobras, Rattlesnakes and other snakes from around the world. In the Orochi Terrarium, large snakes such as the yellow anaconda and alligator snapping turtles are on display. Viper venom extraction demonstrations are held on weekends and national holidays in the Antivenom Room.

    In a remote-ish part of Gunma, the snake center is very interesting to visit. Foreign tourists will probably not want to visit, as it takes a while to get to, but its fun. Its a little old, but you...

    Gunma Pref. Kiryushi Nisatochoutsurugaya 460-1
    Visitors learn about insects up close on the expansive grounds of this experiential education facility that replicates the Japanese countryside in the Niisato area of Kiryu City, Gunma Prefecture. In environments that closely resembles the insects’ natural habitats such as woods, rice fields, and brooks, visitors observe varieties like butterflies and beetles. In the insect observation facility there are many displays of woodland creatures and insects from around the world. There is also a subtropical greenhouse where you can see the tree nymph butterfly, the largest in Japan.

    I visited this place toward the end of May. The only living thing I saw inside the glass building (the main attraction?) were about three or four kinds of butterflies, tens or hundreds of which are...

Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
