Maizuru Park, Chuo

#5 of 57 in Parks in Fukuoka
Park · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Take a walk through Maizuru Park to appreciate pristine natural scenery and see a castle from the Edo period. During the cherry blossom season, the park wears a light pink shade, which creates an impression of walking among the clouds. Walk around to see the castle's rocky walls, towers, and the moat. For a slightly different experience, come by after dark, when the park lights up with artificial illumination and provides a romantic setting for a late walk.

  • It must be really nice in a nice warm spring. But when i was there, it's cold, gray, snowing with lightning(!!!!), mixed with rains and hails!! I stared at the ducks and water birds for a few minutes with butt frozen off and wondering what I was doing there in a cold snowy day!!! Not one of my favorite day-trip moments!
  • A pleasant stroll around the Fukuoka Castle Ruins. The few remaining turrets can only be viewed from the outside. If you climb some steps to the base of the main tower, you will be able to see the silhouettes of Fukuoka Tower and Yafuoku! Dome in the distance.
