What people are saying:

The Tianwang Temple Zoo is still a long history, is one of the first several zoos in Japan, itself close to Tianwang Temple, outside the courtyard a lot of ancient buildings and functional institutions, the relative zoo planning and the regular is not the same, the overall idea is around the teaching in the fun, very suitable for children.

Additional Information

Introduction

Tennoji Zoo is located on the west of Tennoji Park in the south of Osaka. The park is home to a variety of animals, including koalas, raccoons, elephants, and the only kiwi in Japan. In order to promote better understanding of animals' natural habitats and their relationship with the natural environment, as well as awareness of the need for environmental protection, the zoo added a reptile house in 1995. Overall, this is a great place for families to visit.
