The Kyoto city subway system and Kyoto Zoo joined forces to celebrate their respective anniversaries.
The city's first subway line - the north-south Karasuma Line - opened for service on May 29, 1981.
Kyoto Municipal Zoo, which is now serviced by the city's second line - the east-west Tozai Line - at Higashiyama Station, is celebrating this year its 110th anniversary.
Thus on May 29 animal characters rode on the subway passing out leaflets. The campaign will continue until June 12.
