Enjoy a relaxing day out in nature with family and friends on Nokonoshima Island, enjoying views of Fukuoka city across Hakata Bay. A 10-minute ferry ride from Meinohama, you can find a perfect barbeque or picnic spot in vast grass expanses overlooking the sea. In the northern part of the island, reachable by bus, Nokonoshima Island Park spans around 150,000 sq m (1,614,586 sq ft) and features various flower gardens, which bloom in every season. Rapeseed, daffodils, mustard, red-blossomed plums, azaleas, oranges, lemon, corn poppies and, of course, cherries, take their turn to blossom year-round. Choose between shops and restaurants on the island. Nokonoshima Island is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Fukuoka Edition.

  • A peaceful island just by ferry from the center of Fukuoka. The flowers bloom and are beautiful according to the season. There are several meals near the ferry terminal, so it's about 230 yen one way bus, so it's good to just go for lunch like a walk. It is recommended for the family with the child who likes the ride and the date spot.

  • The stage of "Nokojima's One Thought" by Yosui Inoue. It is a 10-minute ferry ride from Meinehama Port. Island Park seems to be able to enjoy in all seasons. I stayed there, but there is no place to eat dinner, so you need to be careful.

  • It’s one of the places you should go during staying in Fukuoka. It is very beautiful island .you should take a ferry from Meinohama terminal and it takes 10 minutes to reach the island.There were Buses to take you to nokonoshima island park.check the website about season of flowers before going and don’t forget to check the weather. After visiting park and coming back to terminal if you still have time you can go Marinoacity outlet mall for shopping.
  • Small but cozy island. You can go easily to this island by the connection of bus and ferry. Many lines of buses depart from Tenjin and Hakata to the ferry terminal(Noko_Tosenjo). I recommend you to stay here Spring or Autumn when flowers bloom. You can see the ocean beyond the flower garden.
