Visitors are also welcome to hop into a model stork nest and take some memorable snaps at the “happiness ring,” A photo-op frequented by those who are expecting a child or hope to become pregnant.

Fun fact: The title of the “happiness ring,” or 幸のトリング photo-op is actually a play on words–the pronunciation of 幸のトリング is a phonetic mix of the Japanese words for “stork” and “ring!”
