Oniyama Jigoku

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
In 1923, for the first time in Japan, the breeding of crocodiles was started which used the heat from a hot spring—the place is also referred to as “Crocodile Hell”. There are a number of crocodile breeding areas surrounding the Jigoku pond, and the number of crocodiles kept there is roughly 70. At the weekend, there is also an event where a member of staff gives food to the crocodiles, so you can observe the exciting moment when the crocodiles are fed.

    This Jigoku is filled with Crocodiles imported from Sarawak, Malaysia. Sometimes I give it to the Japanese to think of such attractions, ie to have Crocodiles enclosed and kept in a 4 seasons country...

    I want to give it zero. Foul. Animals in horrific condition. Dirty enclosures. About 30 animals in one enclosure. It’s barbaric. One to miss.
