  • 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.
  • Nice place. It's chilly during February but it has a nice touch to it - plus it goes from one side to the other so you can't get lost (I like that in a park)
  • Good place to hang out on a hot day. Beautiful Lake in the middle with turtles and coy fish. Running trail all round the lake. People never seemed to stop running. Worth a visit.
  • Such an amazing park! The loop is amazing for running or walking, and the atmosphere is great.
