Kumamoto City Zoological and Botanical Gardens (熊本市動植物園)

This park is divided into the three zones of animal petting zone, seasonal flowers vegetation zone, and amusement park zone. Now, due to reconstruction work following the Kumamoto earthquake, the flower bed around the botanical garden, animal petting area, part of animal museum exhibition area (elephants, giraffes) and part of the amusement park have been opened free to the public. It is around a 10-minute walk from the Kumamoto tram’s Doshokubutsuen Irigiuchi Station.

Review of Kumamoto City Zoological and Botanical Gardens

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/04/16 A very upsetting place
For some of the animals the cages are tiny. Seeing how depressed and lonely some of the animals looked whilst children jeered and tormented them was was a horrible experience. This experience changed...
Reviewed:2016/09/22 Small, kid friendly
They have some rides for small children in the center of the zoo. Shrine for animals. Conditions for some of the animals not so great. Cages do not make good photo opportunities.
Reviewed:2016/08/29 Wonderful

          Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
