The Tennoji Zoo, located in the center of Osaka, is known as the third zoo built in Japan in 1915.
The zoo aims to keep animals in their natural habitat as much as possible. The zoo has 1,000 animals of about 320 species, including koalas and red pandas.
The zoo is also home to Japan’s only kiwi, so there are quite a few things to see.
