Tokiwa Zooときわ動物園

Zoo

This zoo is located inside the Tokiwa Park in Ube City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, and it became famous for the white pelican “Katta-kun,” who would play with the children at the kindergarten nearby. A large-scale renovation took place in 2012, and all the exhibits were redone to imitate the animals’ natural habitats. The park is divided into four zones: Asia, Latin America, Africa, and Yamaguchi Ube. It has the largest number of lar gibbons of any zoo in Japan, and visitors can observe many other flourishing species as well.

          Yamaguchi Main Areas

          around-area-map

          Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes—the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
