I came to this park because I wanted to visit the Retro Car Museum located in the area. Apparently, TripAdvisor does not have a record of this museum in its list of places so I shall write a brief review here instead. For those who have a great interest in classic cars, I would strongly recommend that you visit the Japan Retro Car Museum in Uminokamichi Seaside Park. You could find all sorts of old Japanese classics dating back to the 60s or the 70s. The museum is not very big but it is really worth visiting especially when the staff there are really friendly.

If you are in Fukuoka with young children and its a beautiful sunny day - head here. If you have seen the other reviews, you will no doubt already know that this is a large park. But large is an understatement - it is absolutely sprawling.

First - the logistics. You can get here by stopping at either Uminonakamichi Station, or Saitozaki Station, which is approximately 45 - 50 minutes from Hakata Station.. Stop at Uminonakamichi if you want to hit the Whale Cloud / Go Karting / Slides area first. If you prefer to get closer to the Dolphin Playground and Animal area, stop at Saitozaki instead.

It is possible to rent bicycles or walk the park. We chose to walk as we had a pleasant summer day. While there is an internal shuttle bus, its not very frequent (we were there on a weekday and it was on an hourly basis).

You can check the website to see a picture of the map and you should do so if you have young kids in tow as this place is so large, that you cannot actually get from one attraction to another without quite a bit of walking / cycling. You will be able to see the list of attractions from the website but what is not obvious from the website is the incredible quality and high standards of maintenance this park has at every attraction. The Whale Cloud which is like a huge bouncy was an incredible amount of fun, the Go Kart (which is payable) is well worth the money and you can choose between a Bumpy Route and a Smooth Route - and you get on these motorised cars and drive them on a short, but fun route. The playground with long, fun slides were fantastic. The Waterside Playpark offers a more challenging play area for slightly older children with rope like challenges, the Sky Dolphin play area had more slides and rope play areas.

While the animal area is not large, it was very well maintained, and the animals well looked after. You get to feed the goats , sheep, ducks and swans (food can be purchased at 100 yen) and pet the Guinea Pigs. You can touch the rabbits and turtles as well. There were beautiful flamingoes, monkeys, capybara, peacocks, kangaroos, turtles, cranes, rabbits and many more animals.

On top of all the kid friendly exhibits and play areas, the grounds are expansive, beautiful, and even though we spent 5 hours in the park, we barely managed to cover a quarter of the park.

The one thing that you need to note when coming here, is that there is a lack of food. I am not sure if this is the case on weekends as there certainly were some food areas designated and there were food pictures on the website but they were not open while we were there. Drinks are available in the form of vending machines all over the park but food was not. There was a snack store at the animal area but only selling donuts and ice cream.

This was the kids best day in Fukuoka and their most memorable. It was an awesome day for the adults too. One of the best playground and park we have ever seen.

Uminonakamichi Seaside Park is a journey out of Fukuoka City proper so it's best done in a day. It's mainly for families with young kids - I can imagine teenagers and adults getting fairly bored at the offerings there.

Located within the park is The Marine World Aquarium (with dolphin show), Wonder World Amusement Park and the Luigans Resort Hotel (all separately priced). I thought the aquarium was overpriced while Wonder World offered a lot more for active kids (playgrounds, bouncy mountain, obstacle course over a stream, a zoo, lots of space to run and play). As it is a large area, it's a good idea to rent bicycles to ride both within Wonder World as well as around Uminomakamichi Park itself.

Uminonakamichi is accessible either by train or ferry but for those on a budget, the private ferry service (not the municipal ferry) is more than twice the cost of the train ride so it's something to consider.

I would have given it "Good", but TripAdvisor goes from "Average" straight to "Very Good".

We took the ferry to come here. When you arrive, you can rent bicycles in the same building where you can buy your return ticket for the ferry but here you can rent only until 3 pm. Wait until you reach the park (if you were going there) and you can rent bikes until 6 pm.

The park is quite big, so bicycles are quite useful to move around.

In the park, you can find a kind of mini-zoo with different species of monkeys, some kangaroos, some wallabies, and many other kinds of anymals.

There is a playground for kids. There is a kind of small amusemment park, or it may be more accurate to say that there are a few rides.

You can buy food and drinks at a few places; they have vending machines for drinks and there are toilets, which are free. Food and drinks are a bit expensive, so you might want to bring something to drink before leaving town.

Initially, we wanted to visit around the park after visiting there, but we got surprised by the rain, so we took a ferry back earlier than intended.

My son and I spent a full day here last week, and it was the highlight of our trip to Fukuoka. We rented bikes for the day, and had a fantastic time riding through the park. The zoo area was well kept, and much nicer than many zoos we have visited throughout Asia.
Wonder World could use a bit of an update, but we thoroughly enjoyed the go carts.
You may want to bring a lunch, as there aren’t many locations to get food within the park.
The obstacles over the small ponds were awesome!
Overall, it was a fun day spent in nature, rather than in the midst of the city. We loved it, and my son is still talking about our day there.

This park is suitable for all ages and adds another dimension to your Japan holiday. You can hire bikes very cheaply and cycle many kilometres on flat well made paths. During your journey you pass a zoo, amusement park, several kids playgrounds and many wonderful gardens which are included in the entry price and you explore as you go. Bikes are quite separate from cars so it is also very safe .

This is a very huge park with all kinds of activities. If you are interesting in flowers, don't get off at the park JR station, get off at the last station of the line.

Flowers are beautiful. Gardeners upkeeping the park very well.

Another thumbs up of this park is: it provides camera/phone stand at every scenery point. So its easy to take solo/group pics without asking for help

Nice place! Sakura wasnt in full bloom yet but the flowers are just picture perfect. Huge park to walk around, you can pay ¥500 for an all day pass for the bus, or opt for the ¥200 if you know the exact place you want to go.

This place is one stop park for family, they have a zoo, gigantic trampoline, flower park, playground for kids. The entrance fee very cheap around 400yen, you can rent a bike for your convenience, because this park is very large. Come to this place especially at spring, around April, at that time this park has the best view
