Fukuoka Walking and Public Transport Tour

This tour has a combination of walking and the use of a very convenient public transport system. Even though Fukuoka is a large Metropolitan City of approximately 1.6 million people it is rather compact within the City Center and an easy place to transverse either by walking or using the subway or both. This walking tour of Fukuoka City can accommodate up to 10 members.<br>Pick ups and drop offs at the International Port Terminal / Hakata Station or a local hotel is all part of the service.

It’s a zoo, so you know what to expect. These beautiful animals, deprived of their rightful freedom, look so depressed and bereft of any zest for life. It surely can no longer be ok in 2019 for living creatures to be held captive for public entertainment. Let’s be clear, all zoos are abhorrent. But this is the one that really drove it home for me.

I have visited zoos all over the world and this is truly the saddest and worst one for me. Ironically set in lush tropical gardens, most animals are cramped in tiny concrete boxes with no grass or trees. Obsessively pacing or slumped hopelessly in vegetation less corners, most species appear to have given up hope. Even worse, beautiful and graceful birds sit miserably in silence. Not recommended.

As someone with limited Japanese skills, I was happy with the English directions and information available. I could easily find my way around. I enjoyed my visit overall, but I do wonder if all animals had enough shade and space. However, I must admit I am in no way knowledgeable about the needs of specific animals.

The zoo is set amongst the hillsides of Fukuoka, creating a lush and leafy atmosphere, making it feel very natural and authentic. It is divided into five areas, each representing one continent, and it features about 700 animals with a total of 160 species, including 57 species of mammals, 88 species of birds, and 23 species of reptiles. Among them, you can find both, rare species, such as the tapir and red panda, as well as some more common animals such as the rabbits and goats in the petting corner. During weekdays, the zoo can be fairly quiet, which means you can get a great view of your favorite animals. One of the unique features of the Fukuoka City Zoological Garden is that it has miniature rides that are designed for children. They can either ride the miniature Ferris wheel, miniature train, merry go round and the other rides that are available within the zoological garden. This is one of the reasons why this place is very popular with children. One of the highlights in visiting the Fukuoka Zoological Garden is the opportunity to play with the animals. The petting area is one of the popular places in the zoo because of this very reason. There are many animals that you are allowed to touch, even the most unusual ones like giant snakes. Aside from the animals, the botanical garden is a place where you can relax and take it easy. When the seasons change and the flowers bloom, it creates a beautiful myriad of colors that is truly a sight to behold. The greenhouse has over a thousand plant species that bloom all year round.The Botanical Garden contains approximately 1,300 types of outdoor, mostly common, garden plants. Its greenhouse contains over 1,200 plant species as well. In addition to that, there is also an observation platform where you can get a panoramic view of the Botanical Garden and Fukuoka City.
