There is an Animal Forest inside Uminonakamichi Seaside Park. It's not huge, but there are quite a few animals that you can touch and see at close proximity.
Entering the park, there is a vending machine of animal feed. So, we immediately put in 100 yen for some feed.
But to be honest, don't waste your money on it. The animals in the Animal Forest are very cool animals. They are very well fed and no simple animal feed can attract them. They won't even sniff it even if you throw it in front of them. There is a pond of swan and ducks. They are somewhat responsive to these feed, but still, not worth wasting your 100yen. You will end up with a handful of feed and don't know what to do with it.
There are kangaroos that can't care less about your existence and will walk/jump right pass you as if you are invisible. The little rope fence are to fence of humans. The animals can jump right across it, which is kind of ironic as it is usually the other way around.
No idea what this guys is. And he is very cool and walked across the pedestrian pavement ignoring me and Cho.
There were also ponies, monkeys, rabbits, and some other animals. It's a fun place to get up close with some animals. Too bad it was raining. Would be more fun on a dry day.
