Ohori Park

Shunchan

Dec 8, 2016

Ohori Park sits in the center of Fukuoka City. You’ll find a large pond in the middle, as well as facilities for everyone. (Interesting fact: Ohori means moat in Japanese, and this ‘pond’ was once part of the moat system of the Fukuoka Castle!)

There’s a 2-kilometer path around the pond for those who enjoy jogging, want to walk the dog, or simply stroll. On any day, you can hear birds chirping in the forest and children laughing in the playground. Plus, with a Noh theater museum and Japanese garden, it’s a good place to relax.

One rather unusual thing here is the ‘concept’ Starbucks outlet. There aren’t many like this in Japan. It doesn’t just look different on the outside; the interior has been designed with the specific intention of being environmentally friendly. For instance, it takes full advantage of natural sunlight to reduce power consumption. Why not chill out here, drink in hand, and make some new friends among the locals?

福岡市の中心にある公園で、ジョギングコース、野鳥の森、児童公園、 能楽堂や美術館、日本庭園など楽しめるものがたくさんあります。

その中でも私がぜひオススメしたいのが、大濠公園内にあるスターバックスです。

この店舗は日本国内でも数少ない、特別な外観や内装の「コンセプトストア」であり、 内装にこだわり、環境に配慮したつくりとなっています。 例えば、太陽光を利用し、電力消費を抑えるなどの工夫が施されています。

この太陽光を浴びながら、リラックスし、スターバックスの飲み物を片手に、 地元の人々に溶け込むのもとても良い体験となるでしょう。
