In Machida, there is a small animal park with a huge outdoor enclosure with over 200 squirrels. Visitors can enter the enclosure and feed the squirrels, however you should not be a late riser.
Every year in winter the Zoo holds a capybara hot spring event. It usually starts at the end of November and lasts until early April. During the event on most weekends and certain weekdays the capybaras of the Zoo will take a bath in hot springs that the zoo constructed specifically for the capybaras.
Gunma is what I like to call the forgotten prefecture of the Japanese people. There’s a ranking published by the travel industry every year based on how charming people find a prefecture and Gunma ranks second to last. Which is a problem.
Nagasaki is a fascinating prefecture with a long and colourful history. It was the first part of Japan where foreign explorers were allowed to trade with and has thus been a testing ground for the future of the country.
This zoo is in Yokohama ward, and is more than just a zoo; it also resembles a safari park. Fortunately for the animals, cages are really big and fences are as little as possible as to get the animals to live in an environment that is parallel to their native one.
Tokyo is a huge city. No one has any doubts about that. Within Tokyo there are many hidden areas just waiting for more people to visit them.

To be honest, I didn’t like Maruyama Zoo when I first went there about 15 years ago. The enclosures were small and made of concrete and the animals seemed unhappy. But the zoo has changed and is still changing. There has been a large amount of construction work to enlarge the animal's space and to improve the viewing experience.
I live in Tokyo, the world’s largest metropolis, but my home is in the western region.

For your next Tokyo vacation, here is are my top 15 fun recommendations in western Tokyo. Enjoy!
It is not unheard of to travel to Nagano to see the Snow Monkeys stewing in the local hot springs or onsen, or to head to Zenkouji temple, but the throng of dinosaur statues in the Dinosaur park leading up to the Chausuyama zoo may just have trumped the lot.
Nagasaki is famous for many historical places; however, If you are looking for a place where you can visit with little children who are getting bored of history lessons, I really recommend you a zoo called Nagasaki Bio Park. It is the most amazing zoo that I have ever been to.
