Are you looking for some zoo around Tokyo? Actually today I want to introduce very special zoo in Chiba where is not so far from central Tokyo. It’s about 1 hour by train!
Ichihara Elephant Kingdom in Chiba, is a zoo where various elephant shows are performed daily. This zoo is especially popular for 11 elephants. Apart from watching the elephant show which is held a couple of times every day. The visitors also can experience fun activities such as riding the elephant or standing on the trunk and interact with them. You can also give them some food at “Oyatsu time”!
The elephants can do actually not only “paint,” but also write calligraphy with using long nose! The park also displays over 100 kinds of other animals such as giraffes, hippopotamuses, tigers, raccoons, alpacas, crocodiles, zebras, chimpanzees, camels and so on. Visitors can shop for souvenirs in several shops around the zoo, and enjoy food and coffee at 2 cafes and restaurants. Ichihara Elephant Kingdom is not so big zoo actually but perfect for your kids and family! You will never get bored even staying whole day! Interesting? Please check it out!
