Drove out here from Sasebo on a rainy May Day (1hr 15 min drive). Luckily, the park had little museums along the footpaths and straw huts (the featured attraction) to duck into when the rain was too much. It's good to get a map and...More

The name of Yoshinogari is well known for its archeological site. Actually this place used to be a big city, or maybe even the capital, during Yayoi Period. Today this site is well renovated as a historical park, and you can see the reconstruction of...More

Our experience to the park is superb. The park contains both historical information about the 彌生time, e.g ancient tombs and their culture; as well as many scenic views and leisure places. It is also the autumn falls and 芒草 seasons which matches the feel of...More

Definitely worth a bisit if you are interested in history. We caught the Midori express from Hakata station in Fukuoka. The park is 750 m from the Yoshinogar-coen station. It is well sign posted and there is a taxi stand at the station if needed....More

The park area is large, and mostly outdoor, so you won't enjoy it on rainy or windy days. The entrance fee in April 2017 was 420 Yen per person (adult). We suggest taking a free bus around first, to gauge how big the area is...More

We spent there half a day just wandering around and visiting plenty of remains of japanese historical heritage. The place is huge and was totally empty in the middle of July. You can feel the history there visiting different venues from the past.

We've been here twice, but we haven't visited the whole area in the park. We might be able to finish in a day if we walk fast, but probably we'll need to extend one day. There's always special exhibitions, and experience... More
