Is There Any Other Spot We Can Have Fun With Our Kids? 


In addition to Cow・Art, let me introduce other spot where you can also have fun with your kids in Southeast Botanical Gardens!


Dream Place for Adults !?Tree house  Ficus superba


The tree house is right next by the square where you can have Cow・Art. Sometimes, the adults are more exciting than their kids unexpectedly! No matter what age you are, tree house can always tickle your fancy~♪



Healing Mini Zoo


Cute animals like capybara, squirrel monkey, and other animals are waiting for you!


Shiba “Machiko” who lives a little away from other animals is my favorite.

OMG!!! I can’t take my eyes away from it…



The Final Chapter Goes Here! Ending with the Original Sweets♪

What if we can have some ice after all the sweat! We decide to go to the cafe shop Chibana Gelato near the Tram Station. 

Gelato is made of banana from Yaesecho, sweet potato from Yomitan Village, custard from Yanbaru and other materials. All of them are made in Okinawa. There are over 20 kinds of gelato here.
