Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens

Outdoor Activities Entertainment

The Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens is a favorite with Nagoya’s citizens and is the second most popular zoo in Japan, after Ueno Zoo in Tokyo. In recent years the zoo’s handsome gorilla and the siamang gibbon have received lots of media attention, but there is more to see. Higashiyama Zoo has a large number of domesticated animals, alongside many animals that cannot be seen anywhere else in Japan. Great for a family trip, everyone will find an animal that they like in here.
