Shoebill "動かない鳥" in Ueno zoo in Tokyo, Japan.


上野動物園のnext idle に会いに行きましょう♪

Shoebill of '' 動かない鳥 Not moving bird is called next idle in Ueno.

Hello! I'm Miki.
I will show you the latest news from Japan.
Have you ever heard Ueno zoo in Japan?
Check the following site.

Shoebill will become most popular bird in Japan soon. Unfortunately the number 1 idle ''Panda'' died last year. Ueno zoo had lost many visitors. No panda means it became the same as a usual zoo. They lost rare charactor in the Ueno zoo.

Speaking for Panda, many people came to think about ''Ueno!'' like that.
But it must be very difficult to import a giant panda from China again, but they caught the chance finally, because many people have visited to see the Shoebill recently. I think this is a good news for them .

So I visited to see that bird last Sunday. There are three Shoebills in the cage,
and Those Shoebill didn't move first time. I visited their cage again after while, and the
Shoebill cried once then. If you could see those birds's moving when you visit a Zoo which has Shoebill, it will be a lucky day for you . ;)

Sanoramen ''OGURAYA'' in Sano city in Tochigi prefecture.

Hi! This is Miki.

I went to Sano on a short trip. This is the famous Sano ramen house "OGURAYA'' in Sano. Everyone waits a long time for ramen. My family waited there for 40 minutes. This ramen restaurant is crowed all day, but the Sanoramen and dumpling is very very nice, and well worth the wait.

And.. I found this bollard (?? Umm like a guardrail post I think), which someone put sparrow statues on. It's rare and cute.
