  • A nice park which allows you to let your eyes gaze far to the mountains. It's a relaxing atmosphere and kids will love the pet zoo.
  • Good
  • It is a nice peaceful place. 触reaemasu to goats and sheep, and grazing are the spring and summer. Relatively close until you come, makes noise, horse and rabbit in a cage is. And spied, and views of Mt. Fuji and Mt. 8 nice and clear and the air. Just be a little colder than the lower bound. At Kobuchizawa IC, even sunny skies was coming here. Early spring snow, the guard outside number or street racing would often thrust into the guardrail. Often fanned Kobuchizawa swamp towards body with long winding roads, and relaxing. One slow car, and can also the Royal procession.

  • Alone on the grass, surrounded by sheep and goats will be freed from the daily. I'm living nature has fallen into disuse along with the bubble the Kiyosato! soft serve ice cream and fine wines. But the steaks are high they thought too much, there is a remnant of the bubble. And once you go every year once they want to go. Very friendly goat. If you come with family, we make onigiri and Bento and think cost on memories of better. Because it is long-awaited commune with animals free of charge.
