Ohori Park


Within walking distance of central Fukuoka City! An urban oasis in beautiful harmony with nature.

This park was opened in 1929 as a Place of Scenic Beauty and was developed on the site of the large moat of Fukuoka Castle, itself a reclamation of an inlet of Hakata Bay. 
The lake has a waterfront exercise path of about 2km and there is a wild bird forest, so this is a place to enjoy jogging, cycling or birdwatching amid the flowers and every season. Four bridges lead across to Nakanoshima Island at the center of the lake, where a picturesque vermillion red ukimi pavilion sits - the symbol of Ohori Park. This is the perfect leisure spot with people messing about in hire boats and a very well-equipped children’s playground. At night, the entire east side of Nakanoshima is illuminated including the water and trees, creating stunning reflections in the lake and an ethereal scene. 
Other recreational facilities found in Ohori Park are cultural venues such as the Fukuoka Art Museum, Japanese Garden and Noh Theater.
The area is also full of cafés and restaurants, so you can stop off at various shops during your walk.
