Monthly Animal Festival at the Scuola Zoo


An Alpaca which Kisses Ladies Only and More at the Zoo

At Nojima Scuola, a repurposed elementary school transformed into a restaurant and market, there is an additional attraction highly popular among families – a zoo located in the same location. This quaint zoo features seven different types of animals, totaling 24 in number. Among them, the most renowned is an alpaca named Raul, known for his affectionate habit of giving kisses on the cheek, but exclusively to ladies! Do you know that there is a unique animal festival event at Scuola?

Animal Festival: Touch and Take Photos with Adorable Animals

Held twice a month, the festival features entertaining events for both children and parents, including guessing winners in guinea pig races, participating in food battles, celebrating birthdays like the rabbit Sunny’s, and much more! Each Animal Festival day promises a unique experience with various planned events for every animal.
