A wide-open, green space with stunning views of Mount Fuji

Looking like a tranquil part of New Zealand—except for the looming Mt. Fuji in the background—Makiba Park is a public park dedicated to relaxing and interacting with animals.

How to Get There

Makiba Park is accessible by car.

The closest station is Kiyosato Station, which is a 10-minute drive away.

Quick Facts

Much of the parklands are used for grazing horses, sheep and cattle

There is a restaurant and food market on site, with local produce

Children can visit the petting zoo to meet the animals

Famous local beef

The restaurant in the park serves locally-sourced foods, such as highland vegetables and the succulent Koshu wine beef, which is produced by feeding cattle wine lees, the rich paste left over from fermentation. The beef is said to be made much more tender due to this unique feed.

Helping the community

The park also has a community hall, which informs guests on how money earned at the park is redistributed throughout the local community.

Opening hours

The park is free to enter. It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Tuesday to Sunday during mid-April to mid-November.
