Capybara Onsen @ Saitama Children’s Zoo | HIGASHIMATSUYAMA

November 19, 2016 @ 14:30 - November 20, 2016 @ 15:30

The annual Capybara Onsen at the Saitama Children’s Animal Nature park will start from Saturday November 19th until the end of March. The end date will be determined at a later date depending on weather and other factors.

The event will take place daily on the days the zoo is open from 2.30 pm to 3.30 pm. The first 12 customers in line will be able to get up close and personal with the capybara and enjoy a foot spa in the same enclosure. There is no additional cost for this event, just the regular zoo entry fee.

Until November 20th they have the popular animal stage event, where the animals put on a show in the main theatre (near the paddling pool, beside the Beatrix Potter museum). They currently have their annual art festival running at the zoo too. You can try your hand at some animal crafts during this period. It will run until December 25th. Another event that can be enjoyed during Winter in the zoo is the annual gift giving to animals which will take place on December 18th this year.  All of these events are free to participate in, once you have paid into the zoo itself.

Information for the Capybara event has yet to be up-dated on the official website. For more information in English on seasonal events at the zoo and for general information in English:
