Minamigaoka Dairy is a family ranch that has all sorts of domestic animals and activities aimed at families. You can get up close with sheep, cows, goats, rabbits and horses, catch fish and cook them, play golf, shoot a bow and arrow and ride a horse all in one place. Shops and restaurants make this a great family day out for everyone concerned. They milk their herd of Guernsey cows and there are lots of great local products in the shops. Entry is free and there is loads of parking.

I am an Aussie expat (ex Sydney, Perth, ex UK) living in rural Japan. Im very passionate about people seeing more of Japan than the big cities, which are wonderful places, but there are so many hidden treasures in the countryside and lesser known regions. For the three years I have been living here I've been keeping a blog called "Just life (in Japan)" about my life in Japan, the places I visit and Tochigi Prefecture where I live.
