Sakura Festival at Fukuoka Castle(3/29~4/8)


Fukuoka Castle Sakura Festival will be held around the ruins of Fukuoka Castle (福岡城跡)at Maizuru Park(舞鶴公園) in Chuo Ward.

More than 1,000 cherry blossoms and an illumination of the sakura along the castle wall are the reason Maizuru Park turns into the city’s most pleasant spot for cherry blossom viewing. During the festival several events will be held and you will also find dozens of food stalls which sell delicious food. How about doing a picnic at the Fukuoka Castle Ruins surrounded by cherry blossoms?
