The theme of the zoo is ""Encounters with Animals,"" and in the petting zoo area, visitors can touch marmots. Also on the grounds are a nature garden, a rose garden, and an ornamental botanical garden, all with free admission. A miniature railroad has also been installed in the zoo."

The Boso Peninsula forms the main body of Chiba prefecture, and this is where you'll find its endless warm water beaches and jagged mountains. Further inland, Narita - most famous as the home of Narita Airport - is a secret haven of tradition and history in the form of centuries-old Shinshoji Temple and quaint wooden Edo buildings. Chiba prefecture is also home to both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
