After dropping off my stuff at my hostel I still had a bit of time for sightseeing before nightfall. I wanted to explore someplace that I hadn’t seen during my previous visit to Fukuoka in 2017, so I rode the local trains all the way out to Uminonakamichi Seaside Park on the other side of the bay. Uminonakamichi covers a large area and the park is divided up into smaller sections that hold playgrounds, flower gardens, ponds, open fields, and even a small car museum. For me the standout of the park was all the various kinds of flowers that were in bloom and adding a lot of color to the scenery.

In the northwest part of Uminonakamichi there’s a small zoo that you can walk through. Entry to the zoo is covered as part of your ticket for getting into Uminonakamichi and even though it’s a fairly modest zoo it seems to be a popular with the families that come to the park.

It was getting late in the day when I exited the zoo and I hurried around the southern section of Uminonakamichi to see as much as I could before the park closed. The number of people still strolling through the park was steadily decreasing so I got to experience that part of Uminonakamichi without any crowds. Soon enough, it was 5:30pm and I walked out along with the last few stragglers. Then it was time for the ride back around the bay to the central part of Fukuoka.
