Non Hoi Park, or the Toyohashi Comprehensive Zoo and Botanical Garden is a garden, natural history museum, and amusement park a couple of hours from Nagoya in Toyohashi City. It makes for a great day trip. “NON-HOI” is something like “Hey” “Hey, hey” or “Hey That” in the local Higashi-Mikawa dialect of Japanese. I am not sure how the park got such a nickname, but it is interesting none the less.
