Izu-Atagawa seems to be all about the Onsen experience, but one can't really sit in a tub all day.

The park is bit far from Tokyo but valuable to visit. Many aligators, lesser pandas and turtles must attract kids and the juice made from bananas which grew in the park is quite delicious. Also, lotus ponds must be impressive for adults. Please do not forget print out coupon from websight of them. (One doller for each person)

We started in the big Panda park and it... More

This must be a hidden gem, hadn't heard much about such a wonderful place with tropical plants and a huge collection of crocs, turtle, tortoises and fish so near the Atagawa train Station! You just climb the rather steep flight of steps right in the station and you are led into this Garden of Eden, complete with the sight of... More
