Ohori Park in Fukuoka

Ohori Park is a western-style park in Fukuoka which contains a lake, a Japanese garden and an art museum. It’s very accessible by public transport (Ohori Koen station via the Kuko(airport) line) and one of Fukuoka’s popular cherry blossom spots. There are three lanes around the lake, separating bicyclists from joggers and people who are just taking a walk. It’s a wonderful place – not big like Ueno Park in Tokyo, but big enough to spend a few hours there.

A Starbucks is located in the park. I didn’t arrive early enough to go to the Japanese garden. Entrance to Ohori Park is free, for the Japanese garden you have to pay 240 yen (open until 5pm).
