Nov/21, 2020 - Apr/4, 2021 Izu Shaboten Zoo, Originator an open-air bath of Capybara 4.1
from 11/21 '20 to 4/4 '21
Izu Shaboten Zoo where you can interact surprisingly closely with 1500 kinds of cactuses and 120 kinds of animals including Capybara.
"An open-air bath of Capybara " at Izu Shaboten Zoological Park, was discovered by chance when the breeding staff used hot water to clean the capybara exhibition hall in the winter of 1982, finding the Capybara soaking in the pooled hot water and relaxing.
The family of "Capybara Outdoor Bath" of Capybara Plaza is a large family of 13 Capybaras in total.
In this season as well, you can watch the appearance of the Capybara family who bathe in a bathtub looking to feel relaxing comfortably.
When the keepers turn the faucet, and hot water pours they move to the outdoor bath just as if they were "waiting" for it.
There is a big fuss above and under, with Capybara placing its body under the hot water and having "Utaseyu (hot waterfall shower)", and capybara too comfortable and unintentionally sleeping in the bath.
The appearance of Capybara taking a bath is very sweet, making people watching feeling lovely.
Capybara gets in many unique baths such as Yuzu bath and heart-shaped apple bath, etc.

Many of the animals here are kept in very questionable, unsanitary conditions. Some of the birds were bleeding and scarred, and a whole lot of the cages and glasses looked like they have not been cleaned for a decade - some of the glasses were so dirty that we couldn't even see the animals inside. Many of the animals looked so unhappy.
The best thing about this place was probably the shaboten ice cream. The cactus sanctuary was cool, too (besides all the birds there that were robbed of their freedom by being tied up).
I've been to zoos that treated their animals a whole lot better. Probably will not come back here again.

Great place for a weekend outing. Many of the animals are without cages and mingling along with visitors, petting also is allowed, which makes for a great up-close experience. Mt.Omuro is right next to this and that adds to the scenic beauty of the place..there are some discounts with the Mt. Omuro lift tickets as well..
All in all, makes for a good outing place...

You can pet kappibara and other animals. Very big and very nice. The restaurants are a bit pricey. There is a boat experience.I went February but I want to go in the summer too.

A full day’s fun! You can interact with almost all of the animals in one way or another. Touching, feeding, etc.
Be mindful of the show/feeding times to get the most out of your experience!

I'm just here because of Laid Back Camp. Someday, hopefully, if I go to Japan, I would want to go here.
