Halloween decorations in the Children's Castle at Saitama Children's Zoo

Halloween Saitama – For the month of October, on the days the zoo is open (generally Tuesday to Sunday) the Children’s Castle at the Saitama Children’s Animal Nature Park (Children’s Zoo) will be transformed into a Halloween castle. During this period they have a Halloween version of the orchestra that plays in the talking tree attraction. They also have Halloween colouring.  Last year, they gave a sweet in exchange for one picture coloured, but there is no mention of that for this year on their website currently.
