Yusentei garden : Feel tranquility and Japanese aesthetics

Traditional Japanese garden is one of the must-see spots when you visit Japan. Yusentei garden is the best traditional garden in Fukuoka which you can enjoy all the year around. Each season has a distinctive scenery with a wide variety of trees and flowers.  Now is the best season for fresh greenery , and I really enjoyed walking along the circular path around the pond. 

Yusentei was built in 1754 as a villa of the 6th feudal lord of Kuroda family who ruled over Fukuoka domain.  Fukuoka city restored it into the traditional Japanese garden in a circuit style with water sceanery as a designated tourist spot.  As it's located a bit away from the city center, the place is less crowded and very peaceful. Why don't you make a side step to the no-touristy spot ? 

Yusentei has a pond with koi carps you can feed, surrouded by the circular walking path. Enjoy relaxing time with beautiful greenery.
