Fukuoka City Zoo is under reconstruction - the present view is depressing because animals are kept like in the beginning of the 20th century. The adjacent Botanical Garden is much nicer and may justify the visit to the Zoo. The self-service cabin lift is another...More
To be able to travel with a young child & have the ability to have others around, this is a place to do so.

A nice place to visit but be warned that it is a far walk from the nearest subway station. We found ourselves hiking over a small hill/park to reach the zoo. I didn't mind the walk in the cool December air but can imagine it...More

You can use bus or subway. I recommend the bus since it'll drop you off right at the entrance.

Google maps works well on finding the bus number and departure times from wherever you are.
