Get close to some magnificent creatures at Nagasaki Bio Park, a zoo specializing in hands-on experiences with the animals. You'll have the opportunity to hand-feed and pet some distinctly unusual creatures, from monkeys and kangaroos to the semi-aquatic, giant relative of the guinea pig, the capybara. As well as this, explore the flower dome, inhabited by colorful butterflies and vibrant flowers, and the "insectarium," filled with rare bugs from around the world. Be sure to bring 100 yen pieces to buy food to feed the animals with from onsite vending machines. Take a look at our Saikai trip planner to schedule your visit to Nagasaki Bio Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Well organized park, adorable animals. A must-go checkpoint for family . However it is far away from the town, better to drive there instead of taking a 3hrs bus
A highly unique zoo where you can feed and touch the majority of the animals. The animals most receptive to interactions are capybaras, squirrel monkeys, and kangaroos. Indeed, the capybaras are the Biopark's mascot, but the squirrel monkeys are the real star of this zoo: highly energetic, adorable, and eager to be fed. Bring lots of ¥100 coins. You will need them to buy food for the animals from the Gacha-Gacha machines around the park. Normal tickets are ¥1700 per adult. You can pay extra to visit an extra section with cats and dogs, but I would not recommend it, because those animals seem miserable from over-stimulation.
