The Widest Variety of Animals of any Zoo in Japan

Once known as "The Greatest Zoo in the East", the Higashiyama Zoo has over 80 years of history to its name. It ranks second in Japan for number of visitors annually. In recent years, one of the Higashiyama Zoo's Western Lowland gorillas named Shabani, has become an internet sensation for his handsomeness. Shabani has even had his own photo collection published. The gorilla house also sports illustrations by Dragonball creator Akira Toriyama.
