After our visit to the gorgeous Kijoka Iris Fields we drove back down to Nago and stopped by Neo Park.

Neo Park has been on my bucket list for a while but for whatever reasons we only managed to get to it now and to be quite honest with you I don’t think either Matt or myself would have minded if we never got to it!

Sure the girls enjoyed it and it was really fun watching Clio who is not only taking in more of her surroudnings but becoming more vocal/talkative about them.

I cant remember what these are called but they were so bright!

However, it was pretty run down and overpriced and we were both disappointed in it.

The entry fee was reasonable (adults 660 Yen, ages 4-6 220 Yen, and under 4 free) but on top of that if you wanted to actually do anything you also had to pay; we paid for bird food, fish food, and you even had to pay to get into the petting zoo area.

We didn’t bother forking out cash for the train ride around the park and the one thing I did want to do, ride the duck boats, was closed!

We started at Flamingo Lake where Eden fed the birds and Clio while excited by them did not want to be anywhere near them!

After walking through the rather murky looking underwater tunnel and through the ‘Amazon Jungle’ we made it to the petting zoo area.

Matt took the girls in however I refused to pay for myself because all I would have done was snap a few photos and I had no desire on taking a dog for a walk. Eden did however get to ‘ride’ a tortoise a.k.a sit on it, get a quick photo and then jump off and feed some little dogs!

seeing how tall she is compared to an ostrich

One of the workers was taking a pony for a walk and Clio was so obsessed she wanted to follow it but we got sidetracked by the ostrich and when we looked around the pony was no where to be seen.

We probably spent about an hour and half there (if not a little less) I figured we had sped through it so I was surprised when two other groups who entered when we did also finished at the same time. Unless you pay for all the extras I don’t think you would spend any more than a couple hours here.

Clio spent about 10 minutes just touching all the glass bits in the concrete!
