Modeled after the West Lake in Hangzhou, China, Ohori Park (Ohori Koen) offers a breath of fresh air overlooking still pond waters, Fukuoka’s city skyline in the distance. The moat system remaining from the nearby Fukuoka Castle ruins can also be observed here (“Ohori” fittingly translates to “moat.” A 2-kilometer path surrounds the pond, the perfect distance for a leisurely walk, or a decent circuit for lap-running joggers, and the red pavilion jutting out into the water is a wonderful vantage point to observe the city as you catch your breath.

Adjacent to the park is Ohori Koen Japanese Garden, which visitors have to pay a small fee to enter, but offers a gorgeous, immaculately sculpted landscape and peaceful atmosphere. In addition to Zen rock garden and the tranquil waters of the lake, the garden features many traditional tea rooms. Visit in autumn for flame-colored momiji or enjoy the deep green shades of summer vegetation. No matter what season, Ohori Park Japanese Garden provides a beautiful sanctuary in Fukuoka.

Being located in central Fukuoka, a visit to Ohori Park can be combined with other nearby attractions, including the Fukuoka Art Museum and Gokoku Shrine.
