  • In repeat also stopped by the spring trip. Of course looking for capybara. When you look at will be healed. Because the Hall was wide and then traveling by bus, on the way back does stomach aiming feats, walking "and subenn". And may given eat anywhere from informal, reasonably priced lunch provides various animal care is so delicious is the absolute best. When I go to the Nasu always lack of time not slowly but absolutely must-see!

  • This Zoo is a Zoo can interact, rather than watching the animals in a cage. Children as well as adults can enjoy!
