This is a large aquarium located in Uminonakamichi Seaside Park. The highlight of this aquarium is the dolphin and sea lion shows, which are very popular among children. With Hakata Bay as the backdrop, visitors can enjoy a sense of freedom as if the pool and the sea are connected. A sea lion stage is set up right in front of the bleachers, so you can enjoy the performances right in front of you.

The large aquarium that runs through the first and second floors of the museum is also famous, and is quite impressive even for adults. The cute sea otters moving around freely are also a must-see. There are also stores and restaurants inside the museum, so we recommend that you plan a full day of fun together with Uminonakamichi Seaside Park.

There is also a flower garden with colorful flowers, as well as athletic and playground equipment, making it a convenient facility for children. Adults can also enjoy the park with their children, as the ocean spreads out right in front of the park, providing a spectacular view of the ocean and the flower garden at the same time.

“ABURAYAMA FUKUOKA” opened in 2023 and is an outdoor facility with a campground and farm. The grounds include accommodations, a café, and activity areas, and can be enjoyed for a full day. We especially recommend the experience of interacting with the animals! You can enjoy milking cows, feeding sheep, horseback riding, and other valuable up-close experiences with the animals.

Hakata Riverain Mall(博多リバレインモール)

The Fukuoka Anpanman Children’s Museum in Mall, located in the Hakata Riverain Mall, can be reached in 5 minutes by train from Hakata Station, making access very convenient. The facility is directly connected to Nakasu Kawabata Station, so it is safe even on rainy days. Inside the facility, where the world of Anpanman has been completely recreated, visitors can meet Anpanman characters, play games, and play on the playground equipment.

Children who are fans of Anpanman will definitely be very satisfied with this space, as they can also enjoy meals named after Anpanman characters.
