  • Good climate at the beginning of March on Sunday visiting with family has been. First get to the parking lot where the jam. Road to many little side by side was bad manners, but takes about 30 minutes, we finally parked. The park lot at the entrance seem to be, unwittingly walked away with entrance from the parking lot, but the return is a loss is a block away from the entrance to the Sky Tower, ignorance. Also crammed in a refill walk! Nikki showed hustle and bustle and Jimmy couldn't Park, restaurant at lunchtime was a long line. Recommended to bring your are what you eat. Twink Gorilla Shabani I also finally met. The gesture from the twink! Gorilla booth had quite a lot of people. It is still popular. Child was a day of great excitement.

  • Number of animals that exhibit very much, particularly known as a handsome Gorilla Shabani always made visitors circle. Amount of zoos and Botanical Gardens ticket adult cheapness of 500 yen, while insignificant in one day. Is the way to go because there area wide undulating Park walking shoes are recommended.
