🐣Hodosan Zoo Egg hunt🐇
🐣Egg painting at Saitama Children’s Zoo🐇
Saitama Children’s Zoo was the first (and for a while the only) place in Saitama to organize Easter events. In previous years, the children’s zoo actually had official egg hunts, and Peter Rabbit and friends popped in to help out. Unfortunately, they seem to have dropped that annual event in more recent years. However, the zoo has some Easter decorations and during the period they have baby chicks out for you to hold. On Saturday April 13th there is an egg painting event at the Saitama Children’s Zoo in Higashimatsuyama. The event is from 1 pm to 2 pm for the first 30 people to register their name, which you can do at the ticket gate. More information in English:
