The Alpen Hotel has a pet penguin and a whole farm yard of exotic animals for kids to play with. If you’ve never seen an emu or a llama in the snow, head up to the Mate Kids Park behind the hotel. There’s also a goat, ducks and a mini-pig. You can touch and feed the animals and get your photo taken with them. Entry is ¥500 and kids under three years of age are free. From 10.30am till 4pm daily and until 10.30pm on Saturday as a night zoo.
