Ohori Park is a huge green space near the bay in north-central Fukuoka, and one of the city’s premier running spots. There are a number of route options, but the circuit around the pond is the most popular option. Joggers should follow the yellow rubber-chip path — other paths are designated for walkers and cyclists. One loop around the pond is about 1.2 miles, but the .5 mile path through the center of the pond is a great addition.
Longer Run: Venture east onto the paths of Maizuru Park, near the ruins of the Fukuoka castle. There’s a running track there. Runners can also easily travel north on multi-use paths to Nishi Park and the area surrounding the Momochi Seaside Park.
