Maizuru Park, Fukuoka

4.0
#5 of 47 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.

  • Go to Maizuru Park next to ohori Park. Around Fukuoka castle ruins. Just ran the plum in full bloom, so I really enjoyed the plum aromas and. Cherry and also comes in many different means.

  • It is a park of Fukuoka castle ruins. That is visited in the winter so bleak, but one of the Fukuoka cherry blossom, so visit the cherry blossom season.

  • Very nice landscaping and spacious. Went on a rather non-busy day. Park is free of charge. It has a nice vantage at the top of the castle.
  • A good place to take a walk and relax.
  • I was struck by how beautiful the view is from this park during Sakura Season. This is one of the best places to view the sea of Sakura blossoms in late March/Early April. If you happen to be in Fukuoka during Sakura season, make sure you go to the Maizuru Park and to the top of the lookout station they have there. The view of the city and Sakura blossoms is amazing! This is also a wonderful place where the Japanese gather, enjoy eating together under the cover of the trees. There are several vendors in certain areas who sell delicious and creative foods. Make sure to spend an afternoon here and just relax and see the Japanese unwind and enjoy life, laughter and company.
  • 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.
  • I saw great illumination here
