Butter making | HIGASHIMATSUYAMA
July 14, 2019 @ 13:40 – 14:40
Butter making at Saitama Children’s Zoo in Higashimatsuyama.
The Saitama Children’s Zoo (also known as the Children’s Animal Nature Park) is unquestionably one of the best zoos in the Kanto area. And as the name suggests, it is particularly suited to children. There are lots of opportunities to get up close and personal with the animals.
The zoo runs several special events throughout the year as well as regular monthly and daily events. This butter making event is one of their regular monthly events. It has been running successfully for years and enjoys great interest and popularity. It is held on the second Sunday of each month.
The butter making class is held in the cow area of the zoo. In that area you can also try your hand (very briefly) at milking a cow at their daily cow milking event. The butter making is held outdoors in the covered area where you also wait your turn to milk a cow.
The butter making is held from 1.40 pm, after the lunch milking session which is from 1 to 1.30 pm, so you could combine both cow milking and butter making while there. They give you a plastic cup into which you put cream and they instruct and show how to make the butter. You get some bread too so you can sample your butter afterwards.
The event costs 200 yen for adults per person. They allow up to 100 people participate at once. You can get a ticket at the information desk on the way in.
