It's a nature park with incredibly beautiful seasonal flowers. The entire island is a treasure that has been preserved for future generations, it's a must-see for both residents and visitors to Fukuoka City.
First opened to visitors in 1969, Nokonoshima Island Park was built as a place where people could appreciate the pristine nature that the land had to offer in the face of mass industrialization.

Nokonoshima Island Park is one of my favorite places to go. We take the bicycles on the ferry and ride up the hill. The reward after seeing the flowers is the winding road to the left of the entrance that takes you back through the forest and out to the beach before you reach the ferry. Noko is so close, but you feel like you’re in a rural paradise. One of the best places to go any time of year!
