Sightseeing In Fukuoka

While many modern Japanese cities are concrete jungles with relatively little in the way of green space, Fukuoka is unique in that it offers visitors the chance to unwind in both parklands and on a beach. The stretch of white sand at Momochi Seaside Park was installed on reclaimed land 1990, and provides the perfect place to escape the summer heat. For a break from the city altogether, nearby Nokonoshima Island is just a short ferry ride away.
