Maizuru Park (舞鶴公園)

4.0

Park / Green Space

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.

          The most northerly of Kyushu island's prefectures, Fukuoka comprises castle towns, seaside parks, and Hakata ramen, one of Japan's most famous noodle dishes. Whether due to its good location or its unique charm, the prefecture's capital, Fukuoka city, has been voted one of the most desirable places to live in the country - a close-knit community, a thriving food scene, and accessible nature combine for irresistibly laid-back city vibes.
