This is actually a really nice big park, with manicured lawns and a splendid replica of a big beautiful palace (?) Zwinger in Germany alongside a small moat. On the day we went, the park was very empty and the place looked abandoned. So it...More
We arrived at what looked like an abandoned tourist attraction. The building in the pictures is really beautiful. It reminds me of when I visited Italy and Germany. There are a few shops ( amidst the abandoned buildings) with very good priced dishes ¥460-¥1000. Many...More
Only come here, if you have some time to kill and want to take in the surreal atmosphere: Hordes of Chinese tourists taking photographs in front of the replica of the Dresdner Zwinger, who then descend onto the various shops to buy diapers and baby...More
A place to taste Japanese liquor, different types of porcelain with bargain value. Top visit place for visitors in Arita. The car has 2000 car parks. It is just outside the Kyushu expressway. Easy to find.
You probably wouldn't expect to see this European palace in the middle of this small Japanese town, but do pay a visit if you're in the area because the grounds are beautiful and the porcelain sculptures and art pieces on site are unique.
Visited this park last spring. It looked really amazing I almost forgot I was in Japan. The only thing that made it 'Japanese' was the presence of cherry blossom trees. Didn't have much time to look around though, cos it suddenly rained and we were...More
I don't really know how anyone could complain about this place, the grounds are beautiful and it is free, We just visited here this month and quite enjoyed the place. Unlike all the other cheesy theme parks, this one was obviously well built.
you need to see this place to believe it exist in the least expected little town. Sad that they have not maintained the gardens the way they should have. The attractions like the kiln and workshops are not open.
We took the city bus to...More

Hi there. Hakata train station is in Fukuoka (the biggest city on the island of Kyushu, in the North), while Arita is in the southern tip of the West part of Kyushu. I believe the nearest train station to this park is either in Sasebo, but Sasebo to Arita is probably another 45min-1hr drive away. It took me about 2+ hrs to drive all the way from Arita back to Fukuoka. If you're coming all the way from California to visit Kyushu, I wouldn't recommend this park as a stop. Probably not worth it for you. There are many parks in Fukuoka alone that you can visit and enjoy :)
