English version hasn't been ready
site is dedicated to "Nogeyama Zoo", which was established
by Yokohama city government in Japan in 1951. It may be a sort of a
small zoo, but has been visited and loved by many people living in and
out of the city.
Last year, a long-lived elephant in the zoo died as age of 59. (Related
page within Oystergate on the web is here.)
The web master, me, was also born and spent childhood in the city, often
visited there and saw her. Her death brought me back lots of memories
about the zoo. I felt that I wanted to keep those memories in a certain
way. So, I made this site.
As of February 15th, even Japanese version of this site isn't fully
open. English version will come much later than the completion of Japanese
But you can take a look at graphics within the site without being annoyed
by broken foreign fonts, because main pages consist of only swf, gif,
and jpeg files.
Please come back to see the English version sometime in the near future.
Thanks for visiting Oystergate on the web.
