    It is a beautiful park commune with animals. Children were happily touched sheep and goats. Tear the grass, or eat. I like rabbits, horses are not fenced in, so if you come near touching.

    Discover the drive-in 8 Yatsugatake Club to go to the North and after a while, inscribed "makiba Park" big stone on the right side. Parking is a majestic views. Is directing the Red silo roofs and ranches near the emerging Western Landscape Observatory uncharacteristic signs referring to find the distant mountains, Green has a good contrast. Left in the Gunma prefecture, in Central Park has amazing views 望mereba Fuji flanked mountains of Yamanashi Prefecture, Saitama Prefecture, right, weather permitting, views can be said. This is where beauty to feel the beauty of Japan.

    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.

    And the main parking lot is on a large parking lot and retail stores and I broke up. To reach the large parking lot on foot come to the location of the main up and down considerably and exhaustion. Please note that. Soft serve ice cream sweet touch of understatement, was given to the children! Delicious ~.
