  • Is a partly opened since the earthquake, but in a more or less still half about animals can. Very large area has been closed, but many occupies part of the river. You can't enter the Zoo and Botanical Garden is located adjacent to Lake ezu Kumamoto city's largest park and the River, there are natural bird was seen, but photos are now river water shed is not so. It has opened only holidays on Saturday and Sunday brought many visitors. Parking lot makes parking the cars waiting in the on-street parking. Play equipment for the children to recover due to the large families of come stood out by the garden. Come Park, would be better soon. A place to eat, restaurants etc. have been closed in a tent sells CHOW Mein, etc.. Like a giraffe's tour can be, but as shown in photograph done great work to some only visit there. Entrance fees have started collection are high school students and older. Are considering coming increase in the local paper's coverage, he said. Botanical Garden Sakura rape was currently the best season, but weeping and distracted. Many people come to help reconstruction in the garden and I want to wish.

  • Is the Kirin beast Hall you can see from the road outside the Park. Had been aired on TV documents 72 hours so we went this time. 見remashita really. Such locations nationwide are not. It was an extraordinary experience. Giraffe parents and children were playing.

  • At the time of my visit, it was only open on weekends and only parts of the zoo was open to visitors. They were still trying to recover from the earthquake damage from 2016. On the day of my visit, you could see some of the animals clearly excited at the smells, sights and sounds of people! It was cute to watch.
  • We visited here in May, 2017, when it's not totally re-open yet. However, children had good experience here. There was not tap water for drinking because of construction. Staff explained it well. There were food and water sold in the zoo.
  • Great place to bring kids. Of course there are better habitats at other zoos, but there are also much much worse
  • It's closed on weekday....
  • for now, not open. such a pity.
