We visited the place on a cold, wet windy day of April. There were only a few visitors and we felt that we owned the place. We strolled uphill to see all the attractions which both animals and sheds were well maintained and clean. Too bad that the strawberry picking were closed. So, we visited nearby strawberry farm afterwards. The... More

After doing tons of research on how to get to Mother Farm, our family (with a baby)finally made the trip in early March 2015. It was indeed a very long journey with several train changes plus the 40-minute shuttle bus from Kimitsu Station. Best to check the train schedule on www.hyperdia.com. Since we stayed at the Shibuya area, it took... More

The farm is a very happy place to be in! Animals are well looked after and there're plenty of activities for everyone; ranging from animal shows, fruits picking, horse riding to even an amusement park. We rented a car from Tokyo and drove there. Car park is huge and there's no problem finding parking. Pay when you enter. The farm... More

Very wide place, so if you can, take the bus (pay) inside the park. Many farm animals, the kids are very happy here. Beautiful are the sheep show and later, the light event around 19:00.

It is a huge farm, the animals are well kept and seem happy. There are always lots of fun things to do with the kids. Yes, there are a lot of extra charges, but I never feel as if it is unreasonable. Just being able to breathe fresh air, escape the Tokyo heat in summer, and walk around is fun.... More

I had great fun there with friends. But it's be pricy even paid for entry, you still need to pay extra fee for strawberry, amusement and any fun inside. It's big enough for staying few hours if you like farm and nature. 1.5 hours away from Tokyo by car, we drove through Tokyo bay aqua line which cost around 3700... More

You could see the hill filled with beautiful yellow flower in spring and from what I have seen in the brochures, each season comes with different flower and colors! It was amazing! There were many activities you could do. You could join... More
