Japan’s first zoo was established in 1882.
The zoo is divided into the lush green eastern side and the western side featuring Shinobazu Pond.
It is home to various animals, from giant pandas, Asian elephants, gorillas, tigers, to giraffes. The zoo’s recent popular attraction is the “ statue-like” shoe-billed stork that can remain still for hours long.
