  • 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.
