The zoo that you can feel familiar with the Animals
The main theme of Kyoto City Zoo is 'familiar and enjoyable zoo'. The word 'familiar' in the theme has 2 meanings. The first meaning is that Kyoto City Zoo is located in center of Kyoto. And the second meaning is the close distance of animals and customers. The word, 'Enjoyable' is a message for both animals and customers.

The zoo was refurbished in 2015 so the roads here are nice to walk on! They also have many specialties like the area where you can see giraffes from their point of view, from a viewing platform, There is a corner where you can touch goats and other animals, and there is also a small amusement park so this is a nice place for families.
