Imagine: pink cherry blossoms and yellow rapeseed fields in the spring, fuchsia bougainvilleas plants in summer, the rose-red cosmos in autumn, and camellias and daffodils to brighten the winter.

North of Fukuoka, Hakata Port is a port which, in the image of the city, symbolizes the opening to the outside of the megalopolis.
The Maizuru garden is the perfect place to do a hanami, spring picnic. It benefits every year from the magnificent spectacle of sakura cherry blossom.
