“Acros Fukuoka” is located between Meiji Dori and Tenjin Central Park. They saw a building in the city as a mountain and step garden with trees on Tenjin Central Park side. It is an oasis in the city with plants for each season.
Inside of the building, there is an atrium that goes through 2 floors below ground to 12th floor so it is very bright and open.
【Climbing mountain in the middle of Tenjin!?】
Acros Fukuoka seen from Tenjin Central Park has step garden surrounded by greens and looks like a mountain. You can climb this Acros Mountain. (You can climb up to the height of 13th floor on weekdays).
Let’s go to Acros Mountain. You start from the entrance on Tenjin Central Park side and go zigzag up on the stairs.
