Kinin (Gold Seal) Park


The Gold Seal that Chinese Emperor Guangwu (Later Han Dynasty) presented to a local monarch in the Yayoi Era (400BC - 250AD) is said to have been discovered in this very park! The unearthed gold seal (kinin) was deemed a national treasure and is currently on display in the Fukuoka City Museum.
A memorial plaque has been erected at the entrance of the park where the seal was found. Visitors to the park will also find ancient maps featuring Shikanoshima Island and a poetic tablet with a verse written by ancient Chinese historian Guo Moruo on it. Enjoy the view of Nokonoshima Island and the Genkai Sea, as well as being surrounded by nature and history!
