Visit Tennoji Zoo

A zoo in the concrete jungle of Osaka

By Michelle Montano    - 1 min read

Tennoji Zoo, located in Tennoji Park and near many tourist spots like Shinsekai and the Osaka City Museum of Fine Arts, houses about 1,000 animals.

The zoo focuses on animals from the savannah, but creatures from other parts of the world can be found in the wilds of this man-made habitat, too.

The zoo is great for people of all ages, but children in particular will be delighted with the array of critters here. From hyperactive hyenas to listless lions and carefree chimpanzees, Tennoji Zoo is a fun place to explore whilst exploring other parts of Tennoji as well.
