Ohori Park

Ohori Park

For our first full touring day in Fukuoka, Japan we thought it would be fun to visit Ohori Park. Read some reviews on line that it was a nice place to stroll around. There is also a separate Japanese garden that you can check out, I’ll post a separate blog about it in the next few days.

As you can see from the map above, Ohori Park is huge! We definitely weren’t able to go around the whole park.

Things to do in Ohori Park

1. Feed the fish

The koi fish were huge! They were fun to feed hehe. You can buy some fish food at the stalls close by (near the boat rentals). I think they were about 100 yen for a bag (I can’t remember! Sorry!).

2. Go on a boat ride

You can either choose from a Swan Boat (seems to be the most popular!), Water Strider Boat or a Row Boat. I posted the prices and operating hours below.

3. Try reflexology

This was my first time seeing something like this in a park! Definitely had to stop and try it out. It was a little painful at first because I wasn’t use it but it’s supposed to be good for you – it stimulates the body into healing itself by improving circulation, reducing stress, pain and restoring natural balance.

4. Go for a run / jog / walk / bike ride

There are designated lines for running / jogging / walking / biking so make sure to check the signs 🙂 It’s also a pet friendly park. Saw a few cute dogs while we were there!

5. Visit the Japanese Garden

As I mentioned earlier, there is also a Japanese Garden that you can visit inside Ohori Park. It has an entrance of 240 yen. I’ll make a separate blog post all about it. It is really beautiful!

So much to do at Ohori Park! Before we left, we bought some food at a nearby convenient store, found a nice shaded place and had our lunch. Nice place for families to spend their free time. Definitely check this park out if you’re ever in the area.
