But trouble occured. the arrival was rescheduled.
On Sep 29, 2017, KURATA Kaoru, the mayor of Ikeda city, announced in his official diary in the city’s website that the trouble is almost solved and new 3 wombats will leave Melbourne on Oct 3 and arrive in Ikeda city on Oct 4.
One of reason of the trouble is that the people concerned did not have sufficient idea about the new form of animal’s health certificate between Australia and Japan, which changed in 2016.
This week (from Sep 25 to 29), people including members of Australian Embassy Japan solved the trouble.
