What people are saying:

I went to the bear ranch on the 16th of this month. This ranch is relatively ordinary from the outside. I went to the special product store. I heard the guide introduce that there is a horse oil that is only available here, and the price is not cheap. In addition to horse oil, there is also bear oil. The surrounding food toys and so on of the bears are dazzling. You can see the bears after passing through. A pack of biscuits will be distributed before entering, and then fed to the bears. There are about 6-7 areas inside, and the number of bears is about 40. -50 heads. In addition, you can go to the basement to observe the bears up close and have a good time

    Do not visit

    Do not visit this place if concern for animal welfare plays any part in your make up as a human being. The bears are penned into small dirty concrete yards with little to entertain them and they are c...

    Do not go!

    I wish I had checked trip advisor before going. This place is the worst thing I have ever seen. Just truly awful! Do not give them your money. Terrible to see bears kept like this. Animal abuse.

Additional Information


The Showa Shinzan Bear Ranch is located on the Showa New Mountain. The Showa Johor Bahru is an active volcano that erupted in the early years of the Showa era. It is classified as a rare rock-type volcano in the world, and geothermal white smoke can still be seen in the reddish-brown mountains. There are about 100 purebred Hokkaido brown bears in the Showa New Mountain Bear Ranch. The ranch is large, and the brown bears are divided into several relatively fixed areas according to their age groups. If the visitor wants to get close to the lovely brown bear, you can go to the "cage" specially set in the brown bear territory to experience it.
