Tour of Kouro-kan, Fukuoka Castle Sites,
and Oohori Park

Start
The Kouro-kan, a guest house used during the Heian period, and the Fukuoka Castle are both important historical artifacts coincidentally placed in the same location. The city name of Fukuoka comes from the name of the castle.

The best time to visit the castle ruins is usually between late March and early April, when Maizuru Park turns into the city’s most pleasant spot for cherry blossom viewing.

A refreshing park where locals go on strolls and jogs.
Oohori Park also houses a Japanese garden and an art museum, and throughout the year hosts various Noh and Kyogen performances.
