#1 of 12 in Zoos & Aquariums in Shizuoka Prefecture
Admire an array of wildlife during a visit to Izu Shaboten Animal Park, a nature park set at the foot of a mountain. Particularly notable for its resident population of capybaras, the park also offers the chance to see a range of other species, including monkeys, squirrels, and peacocks. The park's name translates as "Cactus Park," with plenty of fleshy plants, artfully arranged, to be found in the five pyramid-shaped greenhouses here. Take a boat tour across the onsite lake to reach a number of small islands populated by small monkeys.

    Featured boat tour through Monkey Island Tour. After landing on the island, once the squirrel came jumped on the head and shoulders, Gimme food. Animal lovers will not collect planning. As close as possible to the free-range other exhibits in the Park also, which set them apart from ordinary Zoo. The bottom line? Cactus is not interested in, but didn't seriously is satisfied only in animals.

    It is a Zoo can enjoy the experience in other zoos, such as squirrel monkeys roam freely, not quite. Near animals, such as Bondo family to see close and see the upcoming Kangaroo may appeal.

Where to stay in Ito

You'll find plenty of accommodations in the long-established resort town of Ito. Close to the station sit a number of budget hotels and modest guesthouses, offering good access to the main attractions in this relatively built-up district. Look to the south for the more upmarket "ryokan" (guesthouses), which offer what many people consider to be the main event: "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) that use the naturally warmed water from the town's hot springs in a range of treatments and relaxing experiences.
