  • Stop off to caniseason every year, but new tour guides, took part in 500 Yen at one time. You can hear because zookeepers can explain the creature's story (behind the scenes). Exciting and also left many questions from attendees and over 20 minutes. Food twice for doing so, 500 yen is money. Just want spice restaurant menu. Vacation village is less than a 15-minute walk from here.

  • I went to the season. But normally not so crowded with customers is so leisurely, privileged. Hall-room air-conditioned in the summer, you can relax. Kids もウケる tired walking around there and so not that big. Night on the sea can also swim, you can also stroll down to the Rocky is great.

  • I went to this year's new year's day. You could meet in front of animals, such as the shrine of the penguins, Dolphin and seal food show. New year's day that a few people can go around and show, was satisfied.
