Can one of you take a gander at this page and tell me if you can figure out if the program where you can SHAKE HANDS WITH AN OTTER is a temporary thing or what? The original blog post I found on it mentioned that it was only open for a few weeks this summer, but I can see dates in December on that other page. Perhaps it's only on at certain times during the year?
Because if I can feed fish to shake hands with an otter, that would be a strong candidate for Things To Do In Japan on the next trip. :)
