Fukushu-en Garden, Naha

3.9
#3 of 22 in Parks in Naha
Forget that you are in Okinawa’s capital at Fukushu-en Garden, an authentic, walled Chinese garden laid out by Chinese and Okinawan gardeners to commemorate cultural and trade links with the Chinese mainland. The garden features two pagodas overlooking carp ponds with many turtles, key-hole gates, and a man-made waterfall, all divided into four sections dedicated to each season of the year, with many pavilions and bridges. You can feed the fish or just sit around and relax, forgetting that you're still in the city. Located in the part of central Naha which was once the main cultural and trade area for the Chinese, the garden sits just 10 minutes walk from Kencho-mae monorail station.

  • Took me a friend of Naha. Meanwhile outside waiting for me, so I hurry and go through. I thought it is worth it if you have the opportunity to go next time because it was quite authentic Chinese garden to spend more time looking.
