Equipment outline

Although it is called a park, it has an amusement park (named "Sports Land" until the mid-1980s), a zoo, an aquarium (opened as a "natural aquarium" until 2000), and a large outdoor summer only.PoolComplex type withLeisure facilitiesIs[Note 2]..Close to the prefectural border with Wakayama prefectureOsaka BayIt is located in the hills overlooking.

Taking advantage of the characteristics of facilities with a zoo (described later), it presents the new significance of a zoo (amusement park with a zoo) in private railway management as a symbol of an environment-friendly railway that "contributes to a low-carbon society" and "biodiversity." (Nankai Electric Railway CSR Report 2009 p2-7).As for the aquarium, even after the "Natural Aquarium" was closed in 2000,DolphinHas continued to breed and breed dolphins and hold dolphin shows.

There are many permanent facilities that are said to be "the first in Japan", and in 1961, on a hill in the park overlooking Osaka Bay.Tourist lighthouse(Height is about 32m) is installed.Even after it was discontinued in September 2014 due to aging, it remains a symbol of the garden.[5]..Also, from March 1964, 3 to the mid-20s, it is said that "Misaki Park Speedline" ("first installed in an amusement park in Japan"".Moving walk) Operates between the zoo and the tourist lighthouse.Prior to other aquariums, the natural aquarium had a large ocean aquarium (oceanarium) from the beginning to 1986, and an underwater promenade (tunnel aquarium) from 1971 to the end of business in 2000.

The site of this garden is operated by Nankai Electric Railway (Nankai)Nankai Main Line"Nan-Nowa Station" (Nankai Railway era1943May 7After opening1944May 5Was located near).For this reason, the company called Minami Tan-Nowa Station "Misaki Koen StationBy utilizing it as "", the convenience of access was improved.In addition, considering that the park is rugged due to the hills, it will be in the park from 3 to 1960, three years after the park opened.cablewayInstalled. "Sightseeing lift" from 1960 to 2007, "Misaki Park sightseeing ropeway" from March 1965, 3 to 2 (the only one in Osaka prefecture at the time of opening)Ropeway(A maximum of 31 people can ride), a "panoramic car" that goes around the zoo from 1971 to 1987 (monorail), "Lighthouse lift" was operated from 1998 to 2007.

The total number of visitors per year peaked in 1966 (about 96), decreased to about 1989 in 72, and decreased to about 2018 in 33.The increasing trend of the cumulative deficit due to the operation of the facility was not stopped.Therefore, on March 6,000, 2019, Nankai announced a policy to withdraw from the operation of the park.In fact, before and after the announcement, we have asked multiple companies to take over the operation.However, no agreement was reached on terms of conditions.[6]Therefore, it was announced on February 2020, 3 that the zoo / aquarium business and the amusement park operation will be terminated only on March 31, 2 (Tuesday).Most of the animals (about 13 species, 70 animals) that have been bred in the parkAdventure world(WakayamaShirahama), Multiple facilities (Kaiyukan,Kobe Animal KingdomEtc.)[2].

In addition, before the zoo and aquarium are closed, an event called "Misaki Park Graduation Ceremony-I played very well-" was held in the park.Initially, it was scheduled to be held from Saturday, February 2020, 2.In fact, in Japan from the beginning of the same yearInfection with the new coronavirusDue to the spread of the park, the park was temporarily closed from February 2th to March 29rd (Monday), so the event will be held from March 3th (Tuesday), the reopening day, to the closing day (23st). It was shortened.In addition, as part of measures to prevent the spread of infection, we limited the scope of business resumption to outdoor facilities, so it was an indoor facility and a closed-door attraction (a symbol of the garden).Ferris wheelEtc.) will be virtually closed on Friday, February 2th.As a result, the originally planned indoor exhibition (event hall) was also postponed. After the closing of business on Friday, March 28OsakaHas issued a request to refrain from going out on the 28th (Saturday) and 29th (Sunday) in the prefecture, so we responded by temporarily closing the park again on the 28th and 29th, but resumed business from the 30th (Monday).[7]..As a result, Nankai withdrew from the operation of the park at the end of the business on Tuesday, March 3, in line with the original policy.

On the final day of operation by Nankai, about 200 applicants gathered before the park opened, so it opened at 9:30 earlier than the original opening time (9:10).As a countermeasure against the new coronavirus infection, non-contact temperature measurement at the entrance and fingeralcohol6,214 people were admitted on condition that disinfection was carried out. The "Ending Ceremony", which was scheduled in front of the entrance after the closing of business at 17:00, was cited as the cause of the spread of the infection (there is a lot of potential infections due to the congestion of people watching the ceremony). For the purpose of avoiding contact), it ends with only a short greeting by Director Seishiro Makai.Instead, it was taken by Makai and volunteer staff in the park after the business was closed.Video of "Greetings for Closing"Of our gardenTwitterWe took measures to publish it on the official account.

When Nankai was operating, the usage fee for each attraction was set separately from the entrance fee, so "vehicle tickets" that can be used only at attractions have been sold for a long time.At the end of the period, instead of the "vehicle ticket," a point system called "Mipo (Misaki Point)" (100 Mipo is equivalent to 100 yen) was introduced at most attractions. By purchasing an "attraction card" at the service counter or at the reception desk of the corresponding attraction, it was possible to play at all the corresponding attractions. Three types of "attraction cards" are sold according to the number of charged points (1,000Mipo, 2,000Mipo, 3,000Mipo).Even if the number of charged Mipo is small, we have taken a mechanism to increase Mipo by additional charge (minimum 3 Mipo = 100 yen) at the service counter and the above reception.On the other hand, coin (cash) -type attractions were left in some areas so that visitors who did not purchase an "attraction card" could use the amusement park.

As mentioned above, due to the withdrawal of operations from Nankai, the business will be temporarily suspended on March 2020, 3.The facilities in the area were transferred from the company to Misaki-cho free of charge on April 31, the following day.The contract sets a grace period of one year until full delivery (reopening as a town park), so Misaki Town plans to find a business operator to outsource the operation of the amusement park during this period. ..By the way, the arcade game machines (about 4 units) installed in the game corner (closed due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection just before the withdrawal by Nankai) are "[Note 3]After bulk purchase and relocation (July of the same year), the main store of "Crayfish" (Naniwa Ward, Osaka City) Is running again[9]..Ferris wheelTochigi OfNasu Kogen Rindo Lake Family RanchIt was relocated to and started operation on July 2021, 7.[10][11].

The main recipients and the main animals that have been decided to accept are as follows.For large animals such as giraffes, the recipients were not decided by the closing date.For this reason, in the Nankai, even during the grace period mentioned above, the breeding of animals for which the recipient has not been decided will continue in the park.[3]..In the meantime, I'm looking for a place to accept.By the way, even at Ueno ZooRed pandaAccepting[12].

History from the opening of the zoo to the closing of the zoo / aquarium

Our garden and the front garden (the area in front of Misaki Koen Station)City Park LawInCity parkHit

Originally part of the land (1938 tsubo) owned by the Osaka Golf Club (opened in 24),Second World WarFrom April 1944, 4, together with the golf course facilitiesImperial Japanese ArmyWas requisitioned.The end of the warImmediately after the requisition was canceled on August 1945, 8, it was transferred to Osaka Prefecture.Farmland reformThe site of 13 tsubo was acquired by the Government of Japan as part of the above.As a farmland, it was released from the government to general farmers.At the Osaka Golf Club, we have begun work to secure and restore land in parallel with negotiations with farmers on state-owned farmland to resume operations.After remodeling the site other than the state-owned farmland (11 tsubo of cultivated farmland) into a 9-hole course, the business was reopened in October 1952.

However, the conversion of liberated farmland to a golf courseFarmland lawConflict with the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (currentlyMinistry of Agriculture) Pointed out, the Osaka Golf Club abandoned the conversion of open farmland.After repeated discussions and research with local officials and Nankai Electric Railway (Nankai), "A city planning park (Izumi Misaki Park) was constructed as a" recreation facility for Osaka citizens "in the Minami-Tannowa area where the golf course is located. By obtaining the approval of the golf course as a "green zone of the park" on the premise of doing so, there is no choice but to obtain permission to dispose of national farmland and convert cultivated farmland. "[47].

As a result of proceeding with the licensing procedure in line with the above conclusions, the Government of Japan approved in October 1955 to lend the cultivated farmland in the designated park area (including the site of the golf course) to the Nankai.In response to this decision, Nankai began construction of Izumi Misaki Park in December of the same year.Since we later obtained permission to set up city park facilities (natural zoos, natural aquariums, shops, cafeterias, etc.) in the designated area, the local governmentMisaki Town(Born on April 4, 1955 due to the merger of four neighboring towns and villages) signed a contract to lease the park site free of charge, and then opened under the name "Misaki Park".For this reason, the contract between Nankai and Misaki Town treated the park as a "rented land park."[8][47][48].

On March 2019, 3, Nankai announced a policy to withdraw from our business on March 26, 2020.We have consulted with multiple businesses inside and outside Osaka Prefecture to take over the operation, but have not reached an agreement. In July 3, we explained to Misaki Town that we are preparing for the closing of the amusement park.[48]..According to Mayor Tashiro Tashiro of Misaki Town, who received the explanation, the company posted an impairment loss of about 3 billion yen in its FY2017 financial results, saying that it was running a deficit of about 33 million yen every year. Was[49].

The total area of ​​the park and the front garden is about 33.6 hectares, and as of February 2020, when the end of operation of the zoo, aquarium and amusement park was announced, the asset value is expected to be 2 billion yen.[48]..However, in Misaki Town, we are seeking the survival of "Misaki Park" by operators other than Nankai.[50]..In line with the above contract, we strongly requested Nankai to transfer the site and some buildings free of charge.Regarding dolphins and large animals that have been bred in our garden, "Because the maintenance cost is large, if you cover the entire amount in Misaki Town after the withdrawal of the Nankai business, the town's finances may collapse," said Adventure World and other facilities. It was decided to be transferred to[48].

By the way, once in Nankai, Osaka PrefectureOsaka Sayama OfTakano LineIn the area along the railway lineSayama amusement parkIs operated as a sister amusement park of our garden.2000May 3The same year after the closing of the parkMay 12Taking advantage of the Takano Line timetable revision, the name of the nearest station on the same line was changed from "Sayama Yuenmae" to the current "Sayama Yuenmae".Osaka SayamaIt was changed to.Although the reopening of this park as "Cape Town Misaki Park" is being considered, the treatment of the name of the nearest station has not been clarified at the time when the end of operation of the amusement park, zoo and aquarium was announced.On the other hand, the Osaka Golf Club has redeveloped the above-mentioned cultivated farmland into an 18-hole course. When the business was completely resumed from July 1953, 7, it has continued to operate until now, after the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry completely sold the cultivated agricultural land (24).[47].

Reopening plan as "Cape Municipal Natural Park"

On March 2020, 3, Nankai signed a basic agreement with Misaki Town regarding the free transfer of zoos and aquariums after the business is closed (FY24).[3]..The ownership of the site and facilities was transferred to Misaki-cho on the day after the business closed (April 4, the same year), leaving the facilities such as the amusement park area, tourist lighthouse, and outdoor stage.Due to this transfer, Nankai is no longer obliged to pay property tax to Misaki Town, but in Misaki Town, the Japanese government responded to the decrease in property tax due to the extinction of the obligation.Local allocation taxUtilize.It is expected that the amount equivalent to three-quarters of the decrease in revenue will be covered by the local allocation tax.[51].

The above agreement provided a one-year grace period for full delivery, during which the Nankai removed zoos, aquariums, Shiny Stadium and pools.In fact, removal work has been underway since early August 1.In Misaki Town, we operate facilities other than amusement parksDesignated manager system,PFIOn the premise that it will be outsourced to a private company other than Nankai by the methodGlamping,Dog runNew facilities for use. While inheriting the name of "Misaki Park", we are aiming for a gradual reopening from 2021 as a town-run natural park.However, regarding the amusement park area, the business operator of the management contractor decides whether to abolish it.[4]..If it is difficult to remove the above facilities, it has been decided that the deadline for removal will be extended to June 2021, 6.[3].

In Misaki Town, on January 2021, 1, "New Misaki Park Maintenance and Operation Project" (tentative name) was launched.Act on Promotion of Improvement of Public Facilities by Utilizing Private FundsSelected as a specific business based on the provisions of Article 7. Assuming operation by the PFI method, we have begun to recruit designated managers (PFI operators) who can conclude business consignment contracts every 10 to 30 years.In addition, regarding the reopening as a town-run park, the following schedule has been set out.

  • April 2021: Pre-opening
  • Around September 2021: Designation of PFI operator and conclusion of business contract
  • Around December 2021: Full-scale operation by PFI operators started ・ Park facility maintenance project started
