Key Information

Description

Izu Shaboten Zoo is part petting zoo, part botanical garden, all fun! ‘Shaboten’ comes from the Japanese word for cactus, so you shouldn’t be surprised to find a Mexico-themed zone, and over 1,500 kinds of cactus here. The zoo also has 120 animal species from around the world, most notably the charming capybaras. In the colder months, you can watch them keep warm Japanese-style in their own onsen, bathing every day in the Original Capybara’s Open-Air Bath! Many more animals roam the park freely, from squirrel monkeys to peacocks to white pelicans. If you’d like to get friendly with these, look out for staff dotted around the zoo who have animal feed for sale. The Animal Boat Tours take you around the nine small islands that are part of the zoo, where you can meet each one's different denizens. Squirrel monkeys, black-tailed lemurs, brown lemurs, and Geoffroy’s spider monkeys are just some of the island inhabitants. Last but not least, nearby Mt. Omuro is well worth visiting as part of your day. Just hop on the chairlift for panoramic views of the Izu Peninsula!
