#3 of 9 in Zoos & Aquariums in Osaka Prefecture
Only the third zoo to open in Japan, Tennoji Zoo shelters 230 species spread across an expanse of 11 hectares (27 acres). Established in 1915, the zoo and the adjacent "Savannah Zones" create an illusion that both carnivorous and herbivorous animals share the same enclosure. The animal park also includes a reptile house, hippo and rhino house, and an exhibit called the "Asian Tropical Rainforest Zone."

  • I think unlike Kanto, Kansai, great number of "Zoo" and compete against each other. Wakayama, before all the world Safari, Hannan Park, and Kyoto in Kobe, there is 3. This is old because there are conflicting but not famous animals. The old elephant was famous. Hyogo and Wakayama are losing out.
