  • Panoramic night view of Nagoya Higashiyama Tower, as a date spot pretty much is recommended. Aichi's best zoo and I thought than before, but also support Japan with park visitors second popular facilities; Recommendations from the animal in me is Bush Dog (founder of the dog and dogs are interspersed with the raccoons appearance) and Otter. Goodness of the loveliness of the Bush dog barks and the river otter at the marital relationship and crushed her like the animal does not accumulate in the eyes. Incidentally in the 2016 polls, topped the elephant a second familiar, Western lowland gorilla Shabani, 3rd Koala that is.

  • It is a big Zoo, amusement park or botanical garden. Been renewed include the elephant Hall, Cafe and lot. But while the old zoo is like the feeling a little lonely. Amusement park is not enough for adults, but it is just better to elementary school children about children. Deposit Park is large, so noisy at the front entrance and easy (pay) but the Zoo, and a lot of Pokemon, the children were excited.
