  • 2/17 was allowed to visit. Brown hair forward in front of the check-in counter at the entrance in order to buy a ticket and sitting in the Chair in front of the stove, sleeping women staff's kindly welcomed. Without any notice to me of course gave me your response by other staff. Will be wearing the jumpers of matching other valet, even though only one person wearing a coat if you are sitting in front of the stove, warm and sleepy. I think it has the facility to enjoy the Zoo watching animals in reception facilities face. Better permission anyway I fired the I do not understand, but at the very least the re-education is? It is a matter of no friendly reception staff, I dozed off just before. No felt gratitude for the meet and greet, was discouraged on the nearby was very disappointing.

  • Old zoo with one of the oldest in Japan. Is compromised, made major renovation, including the entrance was an old-fashioned impression, but as a result, was the changed atmosphere is fairly narrow, so I had been devised!

  • 2-year-old 5-year-old went with midweek holidays between China and Japan. Good thought it difficult all around, but also the 2-year-old have been yourself walking she enjoyed. Petting Zoo with giraffes and most nervous tension took you there. I think that does not get too crowded but has entered 14 o'clock on weekdays, group one was two. It was not particularly unusual animals is just right in the 5-year-old 2-year-old zoo
