  • A nice zoo where you get to see most friendly animals up close and personal. Entrance fee is 1000 yen per person and closes at 5pm. This place is kids friendly if that matters to you. I can't remember any exotic animal of sorts except some birds that are caged up. Depending on how much of a zoo person you are, the one in Hokkaido might interest you more.
  • A one of a kind interactive experience. The admission is a little steep, 1800 yen but well worth it. There are areas where you can pet and feed various animals including capybaras, kangaroos and penguins. They also have animal performances several times a day.
