Momochi Seaside Park

Park life.

Quietly tucked away in the suburbs, the Momochi Seaside Park offers a perfect seaside oasis away from fast-paced Fukuoka city.

With quaint restaurants lining an expanse of sky-blue waters and golden sand, it’s no wonder that the park usually finds itself in good company, especially during the warmer months. Families and couples flock here to enjoy meals on the patio and to play beach volleyball. The park is also legendary among expat locals for its summer night parties.

As Fukuoka is not well-known when it comes to its beaches, Momochihama Beach attracts people from all over the prefecture. What also makes it stand out from its counterparts is the fact that it’s manmade, and therefore pristinely beautiful. Stretching 2.5 kilometres long, it offers fantastic views of Hakata Bay.

For those who tire of lounging in the sun, there’s a shopping complex located at the centre of the beach called Marizon where you can browse the variety of stores the area has to offer. There is also a stunning wedding hall on the premises.

Since it’s located a short distance away from the Fukuoka Tower, why not combine a visit to the beach by going 123 metres up and treating yourself to a spectacular panoramic view of the city? If you’re interested in learning more about marine life, visiting an amusement park, or viewing seasonal flowers, Uminonakamichi Seaside Park is only a short 20-minute ferry ride from Marizon.

Also conveniently situated near the park are the Yahoo! Dome, the Fukuoka City Public Library, and the Fukuoka City Museum.
