A compact city, Fukuoka has a very close access to a city and nature for which sea is within sight just 15minutes away from the center of city by car in Fukuoka. There is a water front, “Sea side Momochi Ocean Park” that represents Fukuoka.
Bristling with the sense of openness, the lively and vibrant seashore is equipped with a side walk, benches, parking lots, and rest areas. For that reason, many people from couples to family pay a visit regardless of seasons.
There are restaurants, stalls, wedding halls, and Marine sports shops in the sandy beach. It has become a fashionable resort.
