Yusentei garden : Feel tranquility and Japanese aesthetics

by Yoko

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 ?

We used Yoko during a cruise stop in Fukuoka. She was very responsive to any inquiries I has before departure and was very helpful in determining the itinerary for our 5 hour stay. The day was perfect, with a great combo of history, touring, and a local lunch. I would highly recommend Yoko.

My family and I truly enjoyed our time in Fukuoka and Dazaifu thanks to Yoko. She was flexible on itinerary before the trip. She met us promptly at our cruise port. Excellent English. We experienced Japanese culture, i.e eating at a traditional style restaurant for lunch. It felt like we spent the day with a friend of the family. Highly recommend!!
