About Tsukuba Doggy Land
Tsukuba, is one of the largest dog and cat theme parks in Japan, where 500 cats and dogs of 90 species live. Mokkun,” one of the world’s largest wooden dogs at 11 meters high and the symbol of the park, will surely make a great Instagram photo.
The petting area is divided into two sections: one for small dogs such as Toy Poodles, Pomeranians, and Pugs, and the other for large dogs such as Great Pyrenees, Akita Dogs, and Borzoi, where you can freely interact with friendly dogs. For rent, visitors can experience walking with their favorite dogs in the park (1,000 yen for 20 minutes).
There are many dogs that even children who are taking a walk for the first time can enjoy. Don’t miss the dog race show and performance show.
Cheer on the dogs as they run at full speed and perform brilliantly. For cat lovers, the “Cat House” is recommended! You can spend a relaxing time watching and petting the cats living at their leisure. If you purchase cat treats, you will be irresistible to the feline eaters.
