The “Dinosaur Adventure Tour,” featuring a large, realistic moving dinosaur, began on Friday, March 20 at APA Resort Joetsu Myoko in Myoko City, Niigata Prefecture.
The “Dinosaur Adventure Tour” uses the grounds of a former golf course to represent three different eras of dinosaurs. There are 25 dinosaurs of 17 different species on display, including Tyrannosaurus and Pteranodon. Their heads, tails, and feet move realistically.
Visitors can learn about the global environment by looking around the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, the era in which the dinosaurs lived, in turn. The size of the exhibition hall means that it is the largest of its kind in Japan.
At the top of this mountain, you can even take a picture with a 6-meter Tyrannosaurus and Mt. Myoko in the background.
