I love animals. Therefore I go to the zoo well.
And my recommended zoo is Shibukawa zoo in Okayama.

There are not the popular animals such as an elephant and a giraffe, the panda in this zoo. In adittion, the animal show is not hold at this zoo.
However, you can touch an animal a lot at this zoo! (Most of animals of this zoo are free-range.)
In addition, you can touch the small baby of the animal which is not shown at other zoos.

Because traffic is inconvenient, it is hard to go, but, everyone should try to go to the paradise of animal!
