Nokonoshima Island Park


A must-see spot on Nokonoshima where seasonal flowers bloom all year round and you can interact with animals.

Nokonoshima Island Park lies at the north end of Nokonoshima Island, an island of 12km in circumference in Hakata Bay. This nature park boasts around 30 varieties of flowers that bloom in different seasons throughout the year.
Nanohana, cherries and poppies in spring, sunflowers in summer, cosmos and changing leaves in the autumn and daffodils in winter make this a beautiful and healing place all year round. In addition to an adventure park, mini zoo and the grass slope in the park where children can ride downhill on a dedicated sled, you can partake in pottery wheel workshop or paint Raku ceramics. We heartily recommend a game of Nokonokoball, a unique sport in which you use a club and ball (similar to croquet) around nine holes set amid flowers and greenery.
In the area of the flower fields offering panoramas of Hakata Bay are 10 separate cottages. These would be perfectly suited to a workcation, hidden as they are in the quiet of nature and allowing a true retreat from the everyday. Neighboring Nokonoshima Camp Ground is a popular swimming spot in the summer. The white sandy beach is fringed by palms, reminiscent of a tropical island resort.
