  • In the capybara came for visited free of charge by JAF membership benefits. JAF Member, and various perks so helpful. Look at this term, I've found on youtube of capybara at lot went on holiday with their children using the paid. Capybara is originally found in the Amazon region because Nasu chill okay? Worry and could see them walking around fine, has been over. My favorite spot is the capybara you can take a bath while watching a capybara who water. Fest was congested spots would not experience elsewhere is so relaxing, not regret. You could 触re合e with lots of animals and nature, and to experience a valuable one day. Capybara's also play go!

  • They visited three times. I liked my son's cat show. Look what came from where, me walking on knees made them (you can experience and sit in the front row) is fun. Rabbit pellets enjoyed even watering, or Guinea pig, but feeding is doing is considerably less amount of 100 yen in parent's complaints. Time line seen earlier because of rainy weather, fun fur show to be cancelled, sorry, but all the hoopla for me. Thanks for the catch well, very cute. Zoo would achieve closer to animals, so perfect for animals like children.
