A beautiful park with a large lake, small islands, and lush green spaces

Ohori Park is a beautiful old park located in the center of Fukuoka not far from Tenjin . The centerpiece of the park is its lake, around which the entire park is arranged, and it also has a museum and paddle boats.

How to Get There

The park is a five-minute subway ride from Tenjin Station or a 12-minute ride from Hakata Station to Ohorikoen Station. From there, follow the signs to Ohori Park.

A historic park

Running across the center of the lake are three islands connected by bridges and a narrow, wooded path. The islands are lit up every evening in dramatic colors and are popular spots for couples.

Runners are welcome

Ohori Park is crowded with runners all year round. In October and November, during the marathon season, it's packed with runners training for November's Fukuoka Marathon.

A leisurely park

There are several cafes located within the park, and many more just outside its borders, so it's easy to while away time relaxing here.

Don't forget the museum and the garden

Within the park is the Fukuoka Art Museum. The museum has an excellent collection of art and sculptures, including works by Dali and Miro. Opposite the museum is a small pay-to-enter Japanese garden, which contains teahouses, a stone garden, and a small pond.


Swan-shaped paddle boats and small rowing boats can be rented from a stall near the Ohorikoen Subway Station entrance to the park.
