Sheep shearing with a big electric hair clipper
I went to “Nakayoshi Tongari Guest Ranch” to see “Sheep shearing experience“
on the afternoon of April 29th, 2017. This event is held annually in this season and
it was held on May 3rd too, this year. The shearing is held on 10:00, 11:00, 14:00 and 15:00. They accept applications on the day on the spot only, so you if you want to experience, you just have to go there anyway.
It seemed if you applied, you could join on 29th when I visited.
I suppose this will make sheep feel cooler.
During the summer vacations as well, they are planning events which visitors could participate in.
