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.

  • For a trip to the island of Nakoshima it is advisable to reserve a whole day. And put sneakers on your feet. The journey from the city centre to the island will take you from one and a half to two hours under the scheme of bus - ferry, or one hour taxi - ferry. We were in no hurry, and a trip almost across the city is also a tour! Let's take the bus. Buses 9, 300, 301, 302, 304 are running from the center to the ferry dock. At the Fukuoka Municipal Ferry Meinohama ferry terminal, everything is conveniently organized. Clear schedule, clearly made boarding the ferry. The ferry departs every half hour during rush hour and in an hour at a different time. You can travel around the island by bus, taxi and on foot. The island is not so huge, only three kilometers, and besides the famous park there is something to see, so we walked around the island, only walked about eight kilometers in four hours. Impressions gained so much that fatigue was not felt at all. The cherry blossoms began to bloom, the pink color spilled down the slope...

  • 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.
