Topics for September 19th & 20th


First, we have an announcement from Tama Zoological Park.

Every year, the number of visitors to Tama Zoological Park increases during the autumn holiday season.

To prevent and control the spread of the new coronavirus infection, a ticket reservation system has been introduced to limit the number of visitors to 5,000 per day.

The system is effective on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays until November 29th.

If you’re visiting the zoo, you must obtain a numbered ticket in advance.

Ticket reservation starts at  9:00 a.m. on September 19th, for admission to the park during September 26th to October 4th.

Reservation is on a first-come, first-served basis and is available every other Saturday for the following two weeks.

Numbered tickets are not required for visitors who arrive after 2:30p.m.

Next, we are asking everyone to take measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

When dining out, removing your mask can cause respiratory droplets to fly. It can also be difficult to keep your distance from people.

To lower your coronavirus risk while eating out, refrain from spending long hours eating and talking loudly or at close range.

To prevent household infection, please take every precaution to avoid getting infected when you go out.

Wash and disinfect your hands as soon as you return home.

Also, please use separate towels, cups and other household items among your family members and ventilate your home regularly to prevent the spread of infection within your home.

It is important that you act properly to protect yourself and others from getting infected.

We ask for your continued understanding and cooperation in the infection control.
