  • I was surprised that Zoo and commune with animals so much. Successfully breeding in Ueno Zoo Shang Xiang pattern goes in the news every day, here is baby Panda is still pink when I was already publicly available about you. Unlike the Zoo not only stopped a few seconds on, here is a little more on Panda's staff at a distance hand's reach. Also in the Plaza Flamingo as well as free-roaming or touching the Bondo. Write "don't give up" was written may bite felt that adults can properly enjoy at your own risk, but so far no great distance. Able to touch the animals, including horses and alpacas, thanks, very soothing. And downright wonderful's show dolphins and lots of animals. Dolphin also that while I could be seen when animal shows is really nice, fun by making your own animal, acting seemed to be. Here I want to go again.

  • 12/4 my wife and I went on two. When we stayed at the Shirahama Spa, so information on the Web at 9:30 too much Open time was different. (Was it official website. ), One almost in front of the entrance gate to wait for hours at 10:30. The weather is good, but times are waiting for the wind is blowing (of course) and the entrance from a covered Concourse in the shade because the roof entrance gate was very cold. However, when entering the Park complained that eliminated immediately. Must see in anyway at the Ueno Zoo strictly behind the glass it is also 立chi止marenai like Panda and the outdoors, was a morning meal or having bamboo branches along k in the two could try and just around the corner. You are looking for was, I just took the Safari train, the morning was best, because animals also rather active, always sleeping but animals who cannot see, such as 見remashita, just around the corner. But Safari still walking is by far the most fun. The Cheetah as well as channels in the fence nearby. Giraffe and Zebra. If children will be delighted. The sound of the roller coaster goes through the head cannot be assessed was not falling for amusement ride system, so that we have seen the animals slowly and was noisy. Menu like nowhere else is speaking of dissatisfaction was largely satisfactory, but at one point, regarding diet, there are a few restaurants, but, if possible, enhance the food court, where you can enjoy various menus as you want.

  • Fun place for kids, but the price is rather steep. Aside from entrance fee, there are in park upgrades for attractions that I'd rather see included in the price. Dolphin show is great though!
  • Disgusting animal abuse park. Only ignorant people without consciences would enjoy this kind of "entertainment." See below.
  • Extreme good experiences for kids to have close distance interaction with animals. You can feed, understand, touch, them by different way. Rent a keep, golf-cart, on-foot, take the parks offered train etc. if you are going to rent a jeep, please make early reservations.
  • Great place to meet people who murder dolphins rip mothers from babies, then dump the babies at sea to die, all for your money. Dont support these people. #dolphinproject
