Good small zoo. The botanical garden was less than impressive, but mostly due to the time of year (september). The tower provides a great view of the park. 640 yen to visit everything.

Higashiyama Zoo has a little-known gem, the 3rd-oldest roller coaster in Japan, Slope Shooter, a "side-friction" coaster built in 1961.

It's a very big park which you need to spend your whole day to have the full view of it !

Lots to see here and there's also a huge garden/lake with it. Good enough to spend about 4 hours here.

動物園には東山公園駅から、植物園には星ヶ丘駅から行くのが近いです。
