Story & Recommendation
A zoo where you can get familiar with the Animals
The main theme of the Kyoto City Zoo is a “familiar and enjoyable zoo.” The word “familiar” in the theme has 2 meanings. The first meaning is that Kyoto City Zoo is located in the center of Kyoto and the second is the closeness of the animals and customers. The word “Enjoyable” is a message for both animals and customers.
