    I went to the home. Entrance fee parking 450 yen, 4 1 is the front entrance and parking lot. The second and the third is a little walk. Fourth is quite far away, free of charge, essentially will be directed in order from the first. Because the comparison is always going to the Ueno Zoo, entertained, but very wide Rhinoceros giraffes, zebras, elephants, were exhibited in the space. Plus the mandrills, gorillas are not personally a bit negative. There is a large park in the excursion of pupils and students were playing.
