Nabeshima Shoto Park (鍋島松濤公園) and playground is a lovely spot to relax while the little ones play. The park is surrounded by diverse vegetation (the Yoshino cherry tree, Sasanqua, Yabutsubaki, Zelkova, Iroha maple), plenty of seating and holds a small pond and children`s playground. The area is great for a short stroll around the pond, bird watching, and for spotting turtles and Koi. Sakura was just starting to bloom when we visited – a great spot to picnic with small kids.
Here is a YouTube video from February 2015 of local volunteers, and neighborhood elementary and JHS students working together to improve the water quality of the pond by draining it then catching and cleaning the various species; turtles, unagi and Koi. All were returned safely back to the pond.
Note many mosquitos are found in this area when temperatures start rising. Please protect yourself and your loved ones with the best Japanese mosquito repellent and aid.
