RANCH

牧場[BOKUJŌ]

There are a number of tourist ranches in Japan where visitors can interact with cows, horses, sheep, and other domesticated animals. People can also try riding a horse, milking a cow, or making butter, or enjoy barbecues, adventure courses, or other activities that are especially fun for children. I live in an apartment in a big city where keeping pets is prohibited. So, I often take my son to a ranch on weekends. This time, we saw a baby lamb, and my son fed it with milk. It must have been a good experience for him.
