Fukuoka Walking and Public Transport Tour

This tour has a combination of walking and the use of a very convenient public transport system. Even though Fukuoka is a large Metropolitan City of approximately 1.6 million people it is rather compact within the City Center and an easy place to transverse either by walking or using the subway or both. This walking tour of Fukuoka City can accommodate up to 10 members.<br>Pick ups and drop offs at the International Port Terminal / Hakata Station or a local hotel is all part of the service.
$1,341.55 per adult

A 10~15 min walk from the subway station/ Fukuoka Castle remains, as its a bit further away, it's more quiet than the other parks. A good sakura hanami spot even though i went a bit early when the sakura were just starting to open.

Nishi Park is actually not far from downtown. From Ohori Park subway station, it takes only 15 minutes’ walk. The best season to visit this place is certainly at the end of March, when cherry blossoms are in full bloom. The view from observatory is also nice.

When we arrived in late March in Fukuoka, we already knew the sakura were slow to bloom and not to be seen yet. But we learned at the TIC that the Sakura Matsuri was happening regardless. We got a brochure about the Sunday parade starting at Nishi Park, so we headed to the park on the day. There was not much going on as far as blossoms were concerned, but the place was hopping with costumed children and adults waiting for the parade to begin. We walked around the park a little after having our fill photographing people. There were some good views of the city from the top of the park but city scapes don’t really fascinate us. It’s a relatively easy climb up a lot of steps to the top. The Shrine at the top was interesting and did offer some photo ops of the buildings and the statues nearby. Getting to the staging ground for the parade involved a climb up a steep hill to the park. If the parade didn’t start from Nishi Park, we might still have visited the park to see the shrine at the top. On the way down from the park we were photographing the parade so did not stop at the many food and trinket stalls which had been set up along the side of the road. Without the sakura the park might not be our first sight-seeing goal; with sakura it would be lovely.

The park in Japanese is Nishi Koen, easily accessible from Ohori Park station (by metro on Kuko Line) and then less than ten minutes' walking distance. Signages in different languages including English along the road. Situated in the middle of the residential area, locals were most delighted to show us the way. We went there when the cherry blossom trees were in full bloom, weaving a pink sky in a gorgeous manner. Food stalls selling beer, spring rolls and rice cakes lined along the path leading to the peak. Japanese families brought their picnic mats and sat under the trees. A small shrine on the peak and walked further you could enjoy panoramic view of the Hakata Bay. The atmosphere was very similar to a carnival. We estimated there was over one thousand cherry blossom trees in the premises. Definitely one of the most picturesque spots in Fukuoka during cherry blossom season.

I went during the cherry blossom as it was indicated in my map as another place to see it. First of all it's not easy to get there as the nearest subway station is a bit far. Second of all, there are a few trees to admire but it's not fantastic. I found it very disapointing. Do not recommend the effort to go, even less when it's not spring.
