One of the stops during our Fukuoka day trip. The place is absolutely serene with lots of places to sit and be still. We brought a little picnic snack and set ourselves up under the shade of one of the pergolas. Another family gifted us with a bag of fish food, so our 4-year old thoroughly enjoyed feeding the colorful Koi Fish. There are so many hidden gems in the garden that we could have spent more than 2 hours there. Bonus points: we saw a Japanese couple in their traditional wedding attire getting ready to do a photoshoot. From the Tatami House, to the large pond, and the beautiful greenery, definitely worth a visit!

Making our way there by buses is convenient. The walk from non-stop to the park was eye-opening where small shops and traditional houses were found.

The entrance is so majestic that you won't miss it. Entry tickets were barely ¥100 and what we witness is pleasing to the soul and sensory.

Enjoy with a brew of green tea with dessert is a must-try. The handkerchief purposes is cheaper than most souvenir shops.

We stayed almost a good 3hrs, walking around the garden and bridges by stones; a change of modernisation.

Yusentei Park located in the middle of Fukuoka City is in a nutshell a rare find of a location that will tick all your Japanese Cultural boxes. So many things, quintessentially Japanese here that you will be held in amazement and culturally in a head spin. I have lived in Japan for nearly 15 years now and I am still bewildered that it took me this long to find a place like this!

Yusentei Park was first built in 1754 as a place of relaxation for a local Lord. After many years and a complete restoration it was opened to the public as the first Japanese Gardens within the Fukuoka City area. In modern times it has become a designated tourist spot with thousands of Japanese and international visitors alike, receiving calmness and peacefulness within its various activities and views to be enjoyed. by all.

The Gardens are a joy to behold. A nice leisurely walk was had with many amazing photos taken in the process. The Koi (carp) were extremely hungry on the day (probably hungry all day everyday) and I got some great photos and videos of them in their natural habitat. I was flying solo on this day so I didn`t partake in the iced coffee and or cold and hot green tea with Japanese Traditional sweets but the next time I visit with family and or friends I will definitely do so. The lookout from this vantage point is truly spectacular!

The location is so central that its a quick 5 minute drive from other centrally located places and only a short 15 minute walk from the closest Subway Station which makes it a very do able visit.

Highly recommended by me and hundreds of others.

I think this is my favorite Japanese Garden in Japan. I have been to Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nara and for my money this is the best Japanese Garden in Japan. We go there every visit to Fukuoka. This is a MUST SEE for Fukuoka! Historic and beautiful.

Yusentei is a traditional Japanese garden in Fukuoka. It is said that the garden was once ten times bigger than now. Because it is not center of the city, it is not crowded, and you can enjoy a peaceful ambiance. The entrance is $2, and if you would like to take a green tea, it costs another $3. There are public buses from Hakata station and Tenjin. Or, you can walk from subway Ropponmatsu station (about 20 minutes’ walk).

A little gem of a traditional Japanese garden in the middle of suburban Fukuoka. The city has grown around this 250 year old park. The centrepiece is a pond with beautiful self contained views, particularly striking in autumn colours. The best way to get the park is No.12 Nishitetsu bus from the Tenjin/Hakata areas, with a stop 5 minutes walk from the gardens; not quick (nearly one hour of stop and go), but worth the trip, with the bonus of passing Ohori park and city castle grounds.

I went here for the first time and although it's difficult to get to it's worth it. Nestled in the midst of the city the atmosphere is relaxing. The green tea and a sweet hit the spot.

We have visited many other parks / gardens around Japan and would rate the Yusentei Park as average, at best. The size of the park is surprisingly small considering the entrance fee of ¥200. I would recommend only if you have spare time and you have already done your shopping.
