Ohori and Maizuru Park: Fukuoka Prefecture

Although the 2 parks are adjacent to each other there have been and continues to be attempts by the Local and Prefectural Governments to combine the 2 areas and make it a SUPER Park of sorts.

Absolutely there are so many things that you can do and see here.  From the Old Castle Ruins of Fukuoka Castle where the powerful elite reigned and wielded power in their Domain to the peaceful and idillic Man made lake that is the center of Fukuoka`s exercise and leisure community.

The parks are a fabulous place for families, kids, couples and tourists to come for a leisurely stroll, partake in many of the cafes and restaurants as well as participate in the many exercise minded activities of the area.

It must be said that at certain times of the year there are a plethora of flowers blooming continuous with the change of seasons.  Of course the most famous is the Cherry Blossoms in March/April and there are thousand of these trees to fill your photographic needs.  However, the plum blossoms are also magnificent in late Feb/ early March but you must also mention the Lotus Flowers in June and the Wisteria Flowers in late May are a real find as well.  I am sure you will find the right flower at the time you are here.

Maizuru and Ohori Parks are a great tour finishing location.  A wonderful last attraction to satisfy your requirements of what a good tour requires.
