Fukushu-en Garden was opened in 1992 to commemorate ten years of friendship with Naha's sister city in China, Fuzhou. Indeed, most of the wood and stone used in the construction of Fukushu-en was brought from Fuzhou.

Fukushu-en Garden is an authentic, walled Chinese garden laid out by Chinese and Okinawan gardeners and symbolizes Okinawa's historic trade and cultural links with the Chinese mainland.

The garden is set out around a large koi carp and turtle-stocked lake that stretches throughout the grounds. Fukushu-en includes areas of spring scenery, summer scenery and autumn and winter scenery set in separate sections.

Typical features of Chinese gardens included in Fukushu-en include the use of borrowed scenery, strikingly-shaped rocks and the magnificent waterfall.

Buildings in Fukushu-en Garden include two pagodas, traditional Chinese keyhole gates, a statue of the Chinese poet Li Bai and numerous pavilions and bridges.
