  • The ferry ride is rather nice because you get a nice view of the city but the park itself is not that special. I expect to see a lot of flowers everywhere but it was not that much. I think Fukuoka bot...  more »

  • It's a short distance away from Fukuoka city, but still involves a train ride, some walking and a ferry ride. Once you get over that, you're presented with a quiet little island complete with its own flower park. Great if you have a whole day to enjoy the place and don't rush it. Flower park's entrance fee may be steep to some. Will come again if I have a few days to pass in Fukuoka.
  • I was working with an English camp during my extensive stay here. The grounds are beautifully gardened year-round with plants that best fit the seasons. Staff members are friendly and helpful and the shops have good traditional and modern wears for purchase. There are extremely few stairs and the few that exist always have ramps, but some of the hills are quite steep. Walking canes and large umbrellas are available for free for patron use. Overnight cottages are very nice complete with kitchenette and toilet. Staying overnight, however, means surrendering to an extremely isolated location overnight. The island doesn't have any convenient stores and nothing is open past 7 aside from the ferry. Plan accordingly! And please don't attempt walking up the island path to the park. It's 1300m of uphill narrow roads. There's also a beach destination on the island. Again, please take the shuttle bus to get there. These beach cottages aren't as nice but they're very conveniently located. The beach has several options for leisure time fun including a floating play dock and on-site eating options. There's an abundance of shaded tables for patron use. WARNING BEACH SNOBS: it's dirty and the sand is painful with shells, etc. Aqua shoes are HIGHLY recommended. Jellyfish are also common, but they're usually not the stinging type. Great outdoor park for enjoying nature Lots of activities available for children Several outdoor play parks (swings, etc.) Cafe Two restaurants Several souvenir shops Popular destination for wedding photos
  • Well it's a kind of pretty spot but also a sort of manufactured tourist attraction without much to see or do. Kind of hokey. You have to take the train or bus to ferry, then ferry, then another bus before you get the opportunity to pay ¥1200 per person to get into the "garden" which has a some nice views out to the bay and a few planted areas that are ok. Some goats and rabbits for kids. Not really worth the effort/cost.
  • This island is very beautiful. Surely it's a place for relaxation, especially for flower lover. It is nice to walk in the park...
  • A little park on a little island far away from Fukuoka downtown. But it is an excellent place to relax. You may enjoy the wind from the sea, walking through the flowers path, doing nothing on the glass land. You will love it if you come on a sunny day!

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.
