Ōhori Park is a beautiful park located in the Chūō-ku ward of Fukuoka, built around a spectacular lake which was once a part of the Fukuoka Castle. Considered to be one of Japan's most striking water parks, Ōhori Park is a popular attraction in Fukuoka for its serene and peaceful environment and is frequented by numbers of both locals and tourists alike. The present park was re-opened in 1929 after it was reconstructed and features a perfect blend of traditional and modern elements including a beautiful man-made mountain, rock garden and several tea rooms with outdoor gardens. The park can be visited throughout the year, with each season bringing something different - be it the winter pines or the red maples of autumn. A visit to Ōhori Park is recommended for travellers in Fukuoka, for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts in particular.

Though designated prayer facilities at the Ōhori Park might not be available, plenty of private space will be available throughout the park to make use of during prayer times. Muslim travellers who wish to visit a mosque may go to the Al Nour Islamic Center – the only mosque in Fukuoka, located in Higashi-ku.
Halal food within Ōhori Park itself will be unavailable, but Muslim travellers could visit some of the Halal restaurants in Fukuoka for dining options. Zaeka, Mr. Kebab, Kebabooz and Nabi San Halal are some of the popular spots and are all located within city limits.
