    "Ichihara Elephant Kingdomhas 10 elephants, more than anywhere else in Japan, and 100 other kinds of animals live there, too, including camels and hippos. After a show in which the elements ""play soccer"" and ""dance,"" visitors can have their pictures taken while riding an elephant. Visitors who make reservations can ride free shuttle buses from Takataki Station on the Kominato Railway or from the Ichihara-Tsurumai Bus Terminal."

    The most depressing place I have seen in Japan. The cage look disgusting and the elephant so depressed. Horrible place.
