  • Touch the animals. Heaven, animals are scary for the child's favorite animal. for the hell it is. Because the hotel is cleaned frequently, then the number of animals is very pretty. Indoor locations, so not much depends on the weather. Car even port liner is convenient, but not general store around. Small prey interaction with animals sold in so many places, so bring some children and have purchased several more budget. There are 100 yen coin is convenient. (Support Bill of course is you. )

  • Most of the animals are free to move in the designated garden area, so there is a lot of interaction with the visitors, see a lot of young children are very brave will use 100 yen to buy 飼 material to try to feed 飼 animals, a lot of interesting lenses are present. Each garden area has its own performance time, which makes it very busy. For lunch, we enjoy the buffet in the garden, although not too much style, but enough to eat a meal and a good rest.

Where to stay in Kobe

Kobe does best with sleek mid-range and high-end hotels offering views of the skyline; book rooms facing south for views of the bay during the day and the city lights at night. Luxury hotels along the waterfront are pricey but offer impeccable comfort and service. You can find last-minute accommodations at the city's budget hotels from the information desk in the main train station or online. For a very Japanese experience, try out one of the city's capsule hotels, known for ingenious space efficiency.
