  • I went to the first day of the 1-year-old daughter and my parents and three-day weekend. Arrived at around 11 pm, but truly, Nasu tourist destination ranking first place only, and there were lots of cars. Dog's children & families with small children & impression was that of a young couple. And nursing and diaper changing because there are families with children, because the toilets were in some places. 11 months early, the weather was nice in the Sun is a thick long sleeve T shirt 1 Mai was OK. The Hall offers two (except for snacks), main restaurant was a procession at 11 a.m.. Ate a hamburger near the entrance of chicken chicken nuggets soft like chicken chicken and not (? ) Was a little disappointing. With potato juice set increased slightly, to 900 yen. Daughter Dalmatians Chan because I love Dalmatians is visited and wanted to let finger her and Dalmatians Chan of break time is quite long and because (Dalmatians-Chan is very good for us) darling little enough time, there was a little bit disappointing I think. Wan-Chan of the rental for a walk, and ended at around 3 pm. Other dogs and cats animals, birds, sloths, Penguin, Bondo, alpaca, camel, etc. and "I wonder if these kids why not get away? "And people close enough to wonder are surprised, and so much fun. Long lines were ready to ride on a bus back from below, but I think it was during the holidays. Stay until the end about 11:00 4 as the 10 minutes. And quite a walk uphill. As her daughter enjoyed a very helpful. Also if you go to the Nasu to visit.

  • Already now 2-year-old daughter and of the 3-day weekend in October. Anyway, it was crowded. The park bus waiting 40 minutes; Noon arrival was was finished feeding the animals or all walks. The matrix show from 2 o'clock cat show despite 30 minutes ago and already can be seen if you're standing. This show gave up eventually. But show and walking without a great location! First daughter chance but usually I want to touch on the cat and はwann in Nya I to the living room. Small dogs and cats I took it easy. Usagi zone like Grandpa long hair rabbit and a giant rabbit. Also touched freely. In the Panda House was active around four children. So climb on the tree are Yas on the visitor's head was. Capybara, can touch a lot of babies and larger children. Is moved to the farm tractor with a lift, but also was good experience for my daughter. Where fishing soon and get off at the lift there is, here is a suspect. Anyway no nightfall. It did not persist for 20 minutes, and ignored the whole bait fish. One was about 30 people, but not bridge. But 釣れなくて also can eat grilled fish. Horseback riding in farm, small children sit in front of their parents or guardians. Tokyo and even pony 4 years old or so, first riding experience! This is the most happy?. Will you stop turning around and taking pictures last. Across the street was doing big camel riding. This is great kids ride for one person is. On the road sometimes with animal keeper? Big Bird let me stop arm and touch alpacas, goats, Eagles narrowly seen. This sort of thing.
