A little-known spot with a view of the streets of Kyoto ② Enjoy the change of seasons from the retro Ferris wheel at Kyoto City Zoo

The Kyoto Okazaki area is impressive for the vermilion large torii gate of Heian-jingu Shrine.

It is also known as one of the best cultural zones in Kyoto with many museums.

Among them, "Kyoto City Zoo" has long been loved as a place of recreation and relaxation by citizens.

It was opened in 1903 and is the 2nd oldest zoo in Japan.

Do you know that the small Ferris wheel in this zoo is a view spot where you can see Okazaki area?

A journey of prospect of 1 lap about 2 minutes and 50 seconds by a retro gondola in pastel colors!

It is fun to look for famous places such as the Sanmon gate of Nanzenji which is towering with Higashiyama as its background or Kyoto Tower in the distance.
