    It is located in southern part of Kumamoto City Zoo and Botanical Garden. Because of the impact of the earthquake is now part business in the botanical gardens and the Reptile House has been closed, such as giraffes, elephants, birds and animal Petting could tour. Because if the tram from the Zoo and Botanical Garden station nearest is the preferred entrance to the train station (main entrance) is closed, this time down at the station kuwamizu Shimin hospital Mae, was from the West Gate entrance. Admission is 200 yen for adults, there are ample parking and coin-operated lockers. We visited this time and the opening of the 9:00 at the same time because of the hot weather person is less. Heat stroke requires attention, but slowly tour you want also to visit in the summer I think.

    So I'm now opened free of charge. But I still watch the recovery on the way, places are limited, elephants and giraffes seemed have energetically. There was some waiting time, monorail etc. Animals also thanks for overcoming the earthquake together, satisfied.

    Flash as a reminder but not this time. That was closed in April last year after the Kumamoto earthquake finally some opening was. Admission is free and is just a thing with the part. It seems animals can see only from the monorail, too. Front gate is closed but is put from the temporary entrance, etc.. Open throughout the year more than before and that is.

    Feature after the earthquake had become news in Fukuoka Zoo here. Watching a number of years have passed since the quake could go only a few times when I lived in Kumamoto though still closed and said, "want to go also! "And I thought. Want to see is a free admission to the Zoo when it opened and the atmosphere of the past a little bit different after having become one now is (> _

Where to stay in Kumamoto

By far the majority of the accommodations in Kumamoto lie to the east and south of the main park containing the castle. Ranging from budget guesthouses to luxury hotels, and even luxury guesthouses (traditional "ryokan," with onsite spas), the accommodations of this central district are spread fairly evenly between the park and Shirakawa River. Many visitors to Kumamoto opt to stay further to the west along one of the peninsulas that jut out into Shimabara Bay.
