  • It's crowded even though it's a weekday. There are a lot of children, the elderly, the woman, and the family.  A facility that anyone can enjoy. Animals are divided into themes and each animal is.  The farthest was the farm where the bird show was seen, but there were four animal buses running on the day of the event, and the waiting time was ready for five to six minutes. I took the Nyannyan bus and the doggie bus. Hey Boroi.  ・If it was a tropical forest or entered the room, a big turtle was walking at the foot.  There are also beautiful blue birds.   The distance that can not be touched but can be shaved. A rare animal is seen seriously at the distance.  ・The cat's show is packed even on weekdays and should be entered the room early. Cats do shows??。 It's okay.

  • I went to play with my child. The park is divided into kingdom town (the area immediately after admission) and the kingdom farm which goes from there by bus in the park. There's a schedule for the day's show and performance near the entrance, so check it out and schedule it. Especially, the bird performance is worth seeing because there is a great power. Every show has a great way of talking about the staff and time passes quickly.

  • Really good place to visit. Animal petting and the cat show is also very good . Walking around the animals in the open is just something you might not find elsewhere very easily. Please visit if you have time.
