Izu Shaboten Zoo伊豆シャボテン動物公園

Park / Green Space

A theme park located in the Futo area of Ito City, Shizuoka Prefecture where visitors can experience a variety of plants and animals. In addition to 1,500 varieties of cacti and succulents gathered from around the world, the park also keeps and displays 120 species of animals, including cute capybaras. The park is famous for its capybara “rotenburo” (“open-air bath”) in winter, in which capybaras warm themselves in a piping hot bath. The park’s five greenhouses present cacti growing in emulations of South American, African, and other environments, and visitors can enjoy viewing rare species as well as cactus flowers. The park’s animal shows and opportunities for visitors to feed animals are also popular.

          Shizuoka Main Areas


          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
