      Tulip time at Ohori Koen
    by IreneMcKay
 

Get here by taking the subway to Ohori Koen Station and taking exit three. Ohori Koen is a large park centred around a large lake. A trip here can be easily combined with a visit to Fukuoka Castle ruins in nearby Maizuru Park.

There is a cafe in the park and a little food store. (A cheaper 7-eleven is located across the road.) In this park you can walk, cycle or jog around the lake or cross the bridges and stroll down the islands in the centre of the lake. There is a Noh Theatre, an Art Museum and an entry charge Japanese gardens here. It is also possible to hire a boat and go for a sail around the lake.

Address: Ohori Park, Fukuoka

    This looks a lovely garden, especially at tulip time!

      Yes, it is beautiful. It is close to the castle ruins and the islands in the centre of the lake are connected by bridges so you can walk right across the lake. Even in the evening there were lots of people here and it felt very safe. Best Wishes, Irene
