  • From home go for less than 10 minutes, some by bicycle. To jog from home. Close to Baker's favorite who could buy bread for two, eat on the island in the middle of the bench. Also, bring a book and read. Then there is shade, rather this island is a favorite and settle down. At lawn Avenue (lol) last Saturday morning has been yoga. Saturday morning jog in the Sports Club also done as both participated several times, but it was fun. Bumping is running from the summer sun falling from very dark, so I have to note.

  • In walks are available. Because there is a jogging track town is evening there are quite a few people. It is a nice café or restaurant.

  • We went to the embassy near to the park and I was waiting my fiancee here. Even it is summer but there was a wind blow around me!  more »

  • Akin to Central Park in NYC, this is a lovely park with a big lake. What a great place for a stroll, a job, and a meeting with friends. There are plenty of places to sit, and there are playgrounds and exercise areas. Do stop by here if ever in Fukuoka.
  • I can only imagine how beautiful this spacious park would be when all the cherry blossoms lining the lake and across the running path comes into bloom, but even in winter, this park is lovely to take a stroll in. Across the lake there are three stone bridges to cross, all with its own significance. Within the Ohori Park is the Old Fukuoka Castle that you can climb to take in a good view of Fukuoka! While there is a Japanese Garden and an Art museum, both are currently unfortunately closed to the public. I suspect the garden will be opened again one the flowers are in bloom. There is also the Gokoku Shrine which visitors can take a look at, located near one side of the Fukuoka Castle. Make sure you are wearing some good walking shoes as the park is quite big.
  • The best place for walking, jogging, or just chilling out. This park is one of the most beautiful water parks in Japan. I was so amazed that the lake has very clean and clear water despite its location in the middle of the city. A cafe and a restaurant located at the North of the park offer bakery, beverages, and good meals with scenic beauty of the lake. Not to mention there is a Starbucks coffee shop that is the first LEED registered store in Japan on the East side.
  • Quite a big park with luscious green trees, clean river, many seats to sit on and just have a relaxing day at this park. Perfect for strolling, biking, running or just walking.
  • Nice escape place in the middle of Fukuoka city. During summer time, the largest fireworks festival will be held in this place annually. Also, this is the best spot of hanami/ cherry blossom viewing

Where to stay in Fukuoka

As the largest city on the island, a hub of commerce, transport, and tourism, and a base for exploration of the wider region, Fukuoka offers plenty of accommodations to choose from. The most established hotels lie in Chuo Ward, the district closest to the port and on the western bank of the Naka River. Standard and luxury options abound in the this area and surrounding districts, offering a range of additional facilities to suit all tastes and budgets. Budget-conscious travelers will be pleased to find hostels and guesthouses throughout the city, but again, primarily in this central area.
