Not enough time at the zoo

It's was a regret that the tour did not arrive early enough to watch the penguin walk at 11am. We missed by 1 hour and the trip would be more memorable if it could start off earlier by 1.5 hour; 3.5 hours of zoo visiting was not enough. Nonetheless, the zoo animals were well kept, zoo was quite a big park; we were able to see the animals up close. I considered it as a fruitful trip. Dinner at Bier Keller - package given was bbq lamb and snow crab. Food was superb, however it would be perfect if we can have the option to upgrade to 3 types meat instead of just only lamb. Price difference in the menu was only 100 yen per person.
