#1 of 34 in Nature in Fukuoka Prefecture
Enjoy a relaxing day out in nature with family and friends on Nokonoshima Island, enjoying views of Fukuoka city across Hakata Bay.

    On ten minutes by Ferry from meinohama Harbor, still within the city limits of fukuoka, this beautiful piece of nature. There is once an hour a bus that connects to the arrival of the Ferry. The bus brings you in 10 minutes to the Island park. Beautiful views of the Bay and landscaped gardens including tourist infrastructure such as restaurants and shops. A nice place to the hustle and bustle and heat of fukuoka to flee here.

Where to stay in Fukuoka

As the largest city on the island, a hub of commerce, transport, and tourism, and a base for exploration of the wider region, Fukuoka offers plenty of accommodations to choose from. The most established hotels lie in Chuo Ward, the district closest to the port and on the western bank of the Naka River. Standard and luxury options abound in the this area and surrounding districts, offering a range of additional facilities to suit all tastes and budgets. Budget-conscious travelers will be pleased to find hostels and guesthouses throughout the city, but again, primarily in this central area.
