Yuzentei Park was originally built as an annex “Yusentei” (villa) in Horeki 4 by Tsuguko, the sixth lord of the Kuroda family in Chikuzen, and was the first place in Fukuoka City to develop a pure Japanese garden of the Chisen Kaiyushiki (1754: The middle of the Edo period). In March 1998, it was designated as a place of scenic beauty by Fukuoka City, and today it is popular as a historical park with a deep and tranquil Japanese beauty.
A short distance from the main building, the thatched-roofed teahouse “Josuian” is surrounded by a grove of trees and bamboo, and is named after Jyosui Kuroda. The “Horaijima” that floats in the pond of the Japanese garden calls the larger part of the island the and the smaller part the “tortoise”. The view of the large hall from the lantern next to the island is a very popular photo spot. In addition to matcha, there are also zenzai sets with chilled matcha in the summer and shiratama in the winter, so you can enjoy seasonal flavors. Enjoy the Japanese history and culture to your heart’s content while taking a leisurely stroll through the garden and mansion.
