Ohori Park Fukuoka


Ohori Park in central Fukuoka is a large park built around a large pond ( or small lake)

It was built between 1926 and 29 and modeled on the West Lake in China, and incoprorated part of the moat of Fukuoka Castle.

Three narrow islands in the lake are connectd to each other and the shore by bridges.

The park is home to a lot of wildlife, especially waterfowl.

The circumference of the lake is almost 2 kilometers, and has paths for joggers and strollers

You can also rent boats.

At the southern end of the park is a traditional Japanese garden (which I will cover next), and near it the Fukuoka Art Museum. Also within the park is a Noh Theatre stage and a Starbucks
