The ruins of Fukuoka Castle are located in Maizuru Park. To get here take the subway to Ohori Koen Station, go out exit 5, walk along the moat and you will soon see a castle gate on your right. Go through the gate and cross the road, you are now at Maizuru Park. If you climb up the main castle keep you will be rewarded with lovely views over Fukuoka. There is not much of the keep left just the lower walls. Wander around the park and you will discover a few remaining gates and some lovely gardens - cherry tree walk, lime tree walk, the iris garden, a large pond, some sports grounds and a large excavation site where the remains of a famous old Japanese travellers' inn have been found.

If you want to bring a picnic to the park you can exit Ohori Koen Station via exit 4 and you will reach a minimart convenience store before crossing the road to the moat.

There is not a huge amount of Fukuoka Castle left but this is a lovely area for a picnic or a stroll.
