    Fukuoka Pref. Fukuokashichuouku Jounai
    Kuroda Nagamasa, the first feudal lord of the Fukuoka clan built this castle over a period seven years from 1601. 480,000 square meters marking the main castle grounds have been designated as a National Historic Site, and the area from the hon-maru to the san-no-maru is known as Maizuru Park, used as a place for relaxation by the locals. This is also a popular spot for hanami flower-viewing parties for cherry and lotus blossoms, and every year in the spring a cherry blossom festival is held where the castle walls and cherry blossoms are lit up at night; although the Otakayashiki site and Tamon turrets are normally closed at night, they are opened for this special time. Be sure to enjoy this collaboration of magical light, sound and cherry blossoms.

    I visited the Maizurukoen on 1 and 11 Feb 2020 respectively. The plum flowers reached 60% bloom on 1 Feb 2020. There were more pink plum flowers than white plum flowers. I went there again on 11...

    Fukuoka Pref. Fukuokashichuouku Ohorikouen 1-2
    When the feudal lord Kuroda Nagamasa built Fukuoka Castle, he used part of a cove on Hakata Bay to create the castle’s outer moat (a great moat, or “ohori” in Japanese). Thereafter, the area around the pond was turned into a garden and later opened to the public as the prefecturally operated Ohori Park in 1929. The park’s great pond is encircled by a two kilometer long path, making it perfect for strolls and jogging. There are also cafés and restaurants in the park, making it a popular location for locals to rest and relax.
