Nokonoshima (islands)


A relaxing island with seasonal flowers, only 10 minutes by ferry from Fukuoka City harbour.

This eggplant-shaped island is only a 10-minute ferry ride from Fukuoka City's Meinohama ferry terminal. The nature-rich island offers fishing, swimming, hiking, insect collecting and walking.

The Nokonoshima Observatory, located almost in the middle of the island at an altitude of 195 m, offers a 360° panoramic view surrounded by the sea. If the weather is fine, Fukuoka Tower and Fukuoka PayPay Dome can be seen. On the north side is the famous flower spot "Nokonoshima Island Park", where seasonal flowers welcome you all year round, such as cherry blossoms and rape blossoms in spring, cosmos in autumn and oxalis flowers in winter, when the ground becomes like a pure white carpet.

In addition to tourist attractions, the island is dotted with historical spots and has many places of interest. As it is close to the city centre, it is recommended for easy day trips and weekend trips.
