Ishikawa Zooいしかわ動物園(2020/5/31まで休業中)


Located in the Tokusan Town of Nomi City, Ishikawa Zoo occupies a 23-hectare site which makes effective use of the natural topography to enable the animals to live in an environment that resembles their natural environment as closely as possible. There is also a Japanese Crested Ibis Breeding Center within the Zoo, which is implementing a breeding program for this bird species. The Center itself is not open to the public, but visitors can view a live video food of the Ibises in the Animal Learning Center. Ishikawa Zoo also holds a variety of special events, including the Spring and Autumn Fureai Matsuri (friendship festivals) and Night Zoo activities on summer evenings, etc.

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
