    Local so been since childhood. It is in that area. Higashiyama Zoo, tennoji Zoo is fun too wide and clean. Was not around all the Kyoto City Zoo is a reasonably sized (and rather narrow, or rather), so to see unique animals, fun, and would never get bored. Even I was surprised at the reviews of other people's, but I like you bin it is. From first Kenta and common childhood favorite, now that their children are born lot, supposed to be lively. Go it will be sure to find your favorite chimpanzee, chimpanzees are with plenty of personality. My favorite is tacashi. I was bored in the Hall and did not go out on the day it was raining, close to the glass was threatened, had suddenly lunges, I saw! Wow! and surprise, I stepped back, but as a man of high intelligence and "laugh is human would have to be a great and wise. "And I thought. Funny, while private seen in the monitor also study of the order of the number of wasuremasu time am chimpanzees Hall said. Through five city buses. Public parking nearby is convenient. Favourable annual passport and.

    Enjoy 10 minutes without getting tired is an image of a small zoo for children, kids and adults alike. My favorite is the "Bush Dog". Face is brown dog bear in body. Moving in the crowd is super cute! Watching 1 hour would never get bored. Dog like the love I bear to right. An indoor excursion, Ferris wheel and other rides. As well as for families with children, couples, it is fine. More than 70 of the junior high school students or younger and living in Kyoto City is free, General 600 yen. I am happy is ¥ 100 college students in Kyoto campus cultural partners system. Perfect diversion please feel free to.

    The ticket for adult is only 600 yen. Nice place to visit but it quite small. *** the cage for tiger is too small!!! Also the lion cage. Sooo pitiful!

    This visit just made me sad. It's a very small zoo and there's not that much to see. The animals look well kept, except the lion, but I guess he's just old. Go the the botanical garden instead.

    A few of the cages are slightly small, although the zoo generally is nicely done. The zoo overall is a good size for an day trip or even just for one or two hours.

    We spent a few hours here in april filled with the colours of spring, my only complaint is the bear stayed in his cave the whole time. Zoo is a smaller zoo, would have liked to see pandas or koalas.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
