My son lives in Fukuoka and we have visited Uminonakamichi Park several times, normally for the grandchildren to play. Each time I have visited, there is something new to look at; this April we saw the dolphin cloud ( a huge bouncy undulating area for the children to run, bounce and roll on) and while the children found the many play areas, my partner & I strolled around the flower garden. Wow! I had never been to this area before and was really impressed by the huge displays. We returned to the Park once more prior to leaving Japan and this time went to the animal area where again we were impressed at the space, cleanliness and care. The children were able to have hands-on experiences with the smaller creatures and thoroughly enjoyed their time. We did take picnics on each occasion, knowing there were plenty of seats and quiet areas to enjoy our food. Altogether two more great experiences during our time in Japan.

I visited Umi no nakamichi seaside park during Dec 2012. It was my first destination once my family and I reached Fukuoka.

Unfortunately, it was raining on the day i visited and the wind was extremely strong. Thus, we were not able to enjoy the park properly.

The park was very huge, however, there was not much things to see and do. Many of the attractions such as the go-cart were not open. Even the 'food court' does not seem to be open even thought it is already noon when I visited the place.

We finally found the ferris wheel after a long walk, however, the price seemed a little towards the high side and therefore we felt it wasn't worth the price. We did bought some food to feed the fish which we thought was quite fun!

It would be better to enjoy the park when the weather is not freezing cold!

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.
