In my eyes, a must while you're here. Low-cost ticket included so much. Plan to spend a few hours here. Would recommend taking the bus to get here, as it's quite far from any train station.

It's such a clean zoo with the most wonderful kinds of animals. You can see how well fed the animals are and how nice the kind of home the zoo had put the animals in.

Fukuoka City Zoo is under reconstruction - the present view is depressing because animals are kept like in the beginning of the 20th century. The adjacent Botanical Garden is much nicer and may justify the visit to the Zoo. The self-service cabin lift is another...More

Zoological Garden and Botanical Garden are located at the same place. If you buy an entrance ticket, you can visit both facilities. I like the rose garden very much. The greenhouse is beautiful, too.

My grandkids live in Fukuoka so we took a trip to the Zoo last week. First the parking is awful. We had to park and take a taxi to the Zoo. It would be best to bring your own food as it was not great....More

A nice place to visit but be warned that it is a far walk from the nearest subway station. We found ourselves hiking over a small hill/park to reach the zoo. I didn't mind the walk in the cool December air but can imagine it...More

The zoo has a well-thought out thematic walk, and even though the weather was hot, managed to see all the animals in a couple of hours.

The habitats are not bad but not up to the standards we are used to in the US. Many unique Asian animals. We did not see the whole zoo due to heat. Walking distance from subway, but long on top of walking at the zoo...More

Some friends and I were bored with nothing to do on a Sunday afternoon, so decided we'd check out the local zoo. The entrance fee was almost unbelievably cheap, only 600yen, which in hindsight should have been a hint at what to expect. I had...More

You can use bus or subway. I recommend the bus since it'll drop you off right at the entrance. If you use the subway, you get off at Sakurazaka station and then you have a pretty good hike up the steep hill to the zoo. There... More
