Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Garden

The botanical garden has about 7,000 kinds of plants, and there is also a “greenhouse” designated as an important national cultural property, and a “gassho-zukuri house” relocated from Gifu Prefecture’s Shirakawa-go, which has become a World Heritage site.

In addition to popular animals such as koalas and giraffes, you can meet about 450 species of animals from large elephants to small killifish. This is the largest number of species in Japan, and you can see the unique ecology of a wide variety of animals.
