I went to Tokushima Zoo, a zoo I have not been to since my field trip in elementary school.
I parked my car in a large parking lot and headed for the zoo.
Surrounded by families and children, it must have seemed out of place for a 30-year-old man to be alone, but I didn't care today.
I got in with a bang.
I was watching the red pandas, and one of them kept repeating the same action, so I took a video of it.
What was I doing?
Thirty-year-old who got lost at the zoo and couldn't get out
Well, I've seen everything, let's go home.
But I can't find the exit. Oh, no! Even though I am an adult, I got lost in the zoo…
Moreover, I am alone, so even if I went to a lost child center, no one would come to pick me up. I am in a desperate situation. If I am not careful, I will be lost for the rest of my life. I am not joking about being the Yokoi-san of the Heisei era. There was no guarantee that I would be able to salute him and say, "I have returned home with some shame.
I wandered around for a while, relying on my intuition. But I came out to the monkey zone about three times. It must have been my imagination that the monkey looked at me twice.
He (or she) is like a red panda, going back and forth in the same place.
I give up. I give up.
As I was at a loss, I heard a voice saying, "I'm going home. A father with his family (probably of the same generation) was saying to his spoiled child.
This is it!
Let's casually follow this family out of the zoo!" The plan was carried out.
Thus I was able to escape from the labyrinth called the zoo.
After being at the zoo longer than planned and feeling exhausted, I headed to the library.
