What is Fukushuen
Fukushuen Garden was first opened in September 1992 to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the sister city relationship between Naha and the Chinese city of Fuzhou (福州). Everything, from the planning to the construction, was conducted with cooperation from Fuzhou workers (natives) to create an authentic Chinese style garden. It is only a 10-minute walk from Prefectural Office Station. Given the ease of access, why not stop by and peruse the garden?
Entrance (Fukushuen Garden Gate)
Stone Shisa which stand on both sides of the gate will welcome into Fukushuen Garden.
A corridor that runs along the water's edge with an attached observatory. The panoramic view from the observatory depicts the spring scenery of the Min River in China.
Pavilion of Spring
The round shape of the pavilion is a reflection on the importance of a well-rounded character. Surrounded by beautiful waters and spring flowers, this area portrays spring in full bloom.
Pine and Bamboo Pavilion
A half pavilion surrounded by walls with decorative windows. The shade of banyan trees and aroma of white sandalwood trees evoke the Fuzhou summer.
San You Zhai
San You Zhai is a small study surrounded by a wooded area with pines, bamboo, and plum trees as used in traditional Chinese landscaping techniques evoking a characteristic wintery feel.
Twin Pagodas: White Pagoda and Bird Pagoda
A smaller version, made of granite, of the quintessential twin pagodas that are the embodiment of Fuzhou's scenery.
