Fukuoka City Zooological Garden
Tu to Su from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PMPart of Minami-koen Park, these botanical gardens offer a serene refuge from the city. The attractions change, of course, according to the season, but an expansive greenhouse holds over 1,200 different species of cacti and other blooming plants that you can generally enjoy around the year. The zoo is not impressive, but sufficient for the entertainment of children or those who may feel the need to nurture a spiritual bond with animals, which may have atrophied since entering the concrete jungles of the city. Admission: JPY400 for adults, JPY200 for students and seniors; disabled visitors, free.
