Giant dinosaurs in a park in Kasaoka!?
Japan’s first realistic dinosaur park can be found in Kasaoka City, Okayama Prefecture. Eight dinosaurs from seven different species roam throughout the park.
As soon as you enter the park, you are taken back to the age of the dinosaurs. And it is impressive!
1 park – 3 zones
The dinosaurs are spread-out over three zones. The terrifying tyrannosaurus and pteranodon can be seen in the Desert Zone. As soon as you spot the tyrannosaurus, you realize just how big the dinosaurs were, and it seems almost as if their roars thunder over the plains today. Excited kids point and shout in amazement.
Further on, you come to the Sea Zone. An ominous, blue elasmosaur rises to the surface of the water. Watch out or it might leap out of the water and attack you! Or at least that’s what it feels like staring into its piercing eyes.
On the other side of the Sea Zone is the Forest Zone.
lush vegetation and plants. It must be extra lovely on sunny days. Take a long, deep breath of fresh air and enjoy the natural surroundings.
A diplodocus, an iguanodon and an apatosaurus inhabit this rich forest abundant with ‘living fossil plants’ such as the metasequioa, the gingko tree, araucaria, horsetail and fern. Maybe they are standing around searching for edible plants, just like that memorable scene in a certain movie!
By dinosaur ‘exhibition’ you might imagine it being indoors, but since this one is out in the open, visitors can get a good look at how dinosaurs lived in their natural habitat all those millions of years ago.
fun; right down to the creases in their skin and the quality of their muscle tissue, they are extremely detailed and historically accurate. It is really a great achievement that can be proudly shown off to the world. It genuinely feels like you’ve gone back in time and are right there! Please go and see for yourself.
