We arrived in Tokyo on May 1st. The first thing we did was head for Inokashira Park Zoo to see the guinea pigs, or morumotto as they are called here. I believe the worker there said they have somewhere between 160 and 180 of them there.

We also got to see some one week old guinea pigs.

Some of the animals I would not have recognized. Like this Japanese "raccoon"

There were all kinds of animals there from goats

to monkeys

Unfortunately they didn't do a show with the guinea pigs like they showed on YouTube, but it was still a great place to visit. The highlight being Hanako, who just turned 65. She is the oldest elephant in Japan.
