Maizuru Park, Fukuoka

4.1
#5 of 34 in Parks in Fukuoka
Take a walk through Maizuru Park to appreciate pristine natural scenery and see a castle from the Edo period. During the cherry blossom season, the park wears a light pink shade, which creates an impression of walking among the clouds. Walk around to see the castle's rocky walls, towers, and the moat. For a slightly different experience, come by after dark, when the park lights up with artificial illumination and provides a romantic setting for a late walk.

  • Linked to Ohori park via aa nice flowery entrance. Definitely more geared toward outdoor activity, as the nice grass flat is perfect for field sports. The surrounding pathways are unpaved, so it gets a little tricky after rain (which was the case our first visit there), and last time there was a large marching band practicing and kicking up a large amount of dust. Lots of stalls in this area and picnics during Hanami season. All in all a nice park, however no different from a large park in any other place.
  • Nice spot to enjoy plum blossom in the end of January to mid of February. This park is also the site of Fukuoka castle ruins.
  • A place to visit during the spring when the Sakura trees are in full bloom. After a tiring walk relax at the conveniently located Starbucks besides Ohori Park.
  • Very large park with the ruins of the castle grounds you can visit and walk among freely.
  • Beautiful and huge park. Watching the sakura petals was awesome.
