There are small roller coasters, a fun house, go-carts, and a cycle monorail that goes high above the park

Mother Farm's flowers
Mother Farm is located on a mountainside overlooking hills and valleys. The park includes colorful flower fields and has the largest number of nanohana or rapeseed flowers in the Kanto region. They are typically in bloom from mid-February to mid-April.
Mother Farm's animals and activities
The park has a full barnyard of farm animals, including horses, sheep, goats, cows, alpacas and dogs. Kids love the farm's petting zoo, where they can play with and feed goats, pigs, rabbits and hamsters.
There are even farm activities, including fruit-picking year round, horseback riding, cheese- and butter-making, and more.
Welcome to the sheep show
The biggest event at the park is the sheep show, in which a real sheepherder from New Zealand teaches visitors about raising sheep in humorous Japanese and gives a shearing demonstration. There's also a sheep run, a duck parade, and a pig race.
Buses to help you get around
The farm is big, so ride one of the sightseeing buses to save time. Choose from the Wanwan Bus (Dog) or the Tonton Bus (Pig).
