Okuetsu Highland Ranch and Mt. Kyogatake viewed from the mini zoo.
“Okuetsu Highland Furusato Natural Park” , where is located at a corner of Rokuroshi Highland in Ono City, Fukui Prefecture. In the park, where is commonly called Maruyama Park, there is a mini zoo which have ponies and rabbits.
It’s a heavy snowfall area around here.
During winter, the animals spend in a house where is a short distance from the zoo to stay over the winter, and the moving is on the news every year.
After the moving in spring, I went to the mini zoo of the Furusato Natural Park on May 3rd this year (2017).
The scenery which a gentle slope lies was born 25 thousand years ago by collapse of the Mt.Kyogatake. Although it was a catastrophic natural disaster, now viewing such an open ranch and mountain scenery, I just want to relax. It’s perfect to touch ponies or rabbits at times like that. There are a camp site and a hot spring on the Rokuroshi Highland.
So it’s good to stay overnight and spend the days relaxing here.
Ponnies in the spacious area.
The rabbits’ playground is also spacious.
