  • What cute capybara. Hot springs in the grounds they made? There are. Kuramann press and the evening becomes warm when in the day who never had cold or over crowded in the State. You can even feeding them. In addition to birds, cats and other is not seen so much syrup animals and enjoy the show. Incidentally at the bird show slightly on the head there are birds who flew a little thrill. Happenings at cat shows cat is good to me (already discounted? ) Also have different meanings in the nail-biting.

  • A little away from the center of the Nasu, so take some time, but can play all day long. Small animals around, so our daughters ' preschool and elementary school was elated.

  • I'd enjoyed in couples as well as families with children, adult, group. I usually look at the birds of prey show, can feel closer to the animals and so there is no tension up ↑ ↑ ↑
