Ohori Park is a large public city park (constructed between 1926 and 1929) in central Fukuoka with a large pond at its centre. Ohori is Japanese for large moat.
The park is designed after the classical garden stop the West Lake of Hangzhou in China.
The nearby attractions (some adjacent) to the park includes the Fukuoka Art Museum, Ohori Park Japanese Garden, Gokuku Shrine, and Fukuoka Castle Ruins. There are peony, rose, wisteria, plum blossom, and cherry blossom gardens too.
There were too many things to see and too many places to cover in this park. Here are some of highlights:
