Lodging INN THE PARK opens second property in Fukuoka with ocean view

If you’re looking for a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city without having to travel too far, then you need look no further than Kyushu’s newest accommodation site – INN THE PARK Fukuoka.

The venue is the second property to join the series of INN THE PARK accommodations, with the first, located in a forest in Shizuoka Prefecturehaving opened its doors in 2017.

Much like the Shizuoka site, INN THE PARK Fukuoka focuses on innovative accommodation, fine dining and unique activities the whole family can enjoy. However, unlike the Shizuoka location, INN THE PARK Fukuoka is designed to fit an open coastal area, rather than an area surrounded by forests.

Located in Fukuoka’s Uminonakamichi Seaside Park, the new accommodation is a short walk from downtown, making it an easily accessible option for those living in the Hakata Bay area.

Stretching about 6 km from east to west, the total area of ​​the site covers roughly the equivalent of about five Yoyogi parks.

Joining the new campsite are the large spherical tents that debuted at INN THE PARK Numazu.

A signature image of INN THE PARK, these tents feature a new design with a diameter of approximately 6m and a height to match two-storey buildings. Inside, the “living space” is approximately 28㎡ and can accommodate up to three adults. At night, these tents glow warmly in the dark.


In addition to INN THE PARK’s unique spherical tents, the park also offers traditional tarp glamping tents that can accommodate 2-8 adults.

Each room has a “fireplace” and a “dining room” where guests can enjoy outdoor dining.

These glamping tents are open until November.


For a more private stay experience, the site also has 3 cabins available. These cabins may seem secluded from the outside, but their large windows offer a view of Hakata Bay that looks especially mesmerizing at night.

These cabins are recommended for couples or individuals.


The last accommodation available at INN THE PARK Fukuoka is the luxurious duo suite located a bit away from the main glamping area. These rooms can accommodate up to 4 adults and offer views of Hakata Bay.

Weather permitting, guests can enjoy meals on the adjoining private terrace.


To eat

Guests at INN THE PARK Fukuoka are spoiled for choice when it comes to satisfying hungry stomachs.

There is an on-site BBQ area that guests can easily use on their own, while the on-site restaurant offers comforting soul fare such as curries and sandwiches during the day, and luxurious family-themed meals. French cuisine prepared with local ingredients in the evening. Additionally, a small coffee stand overseen by Tokyo’s Little Nap COFFEE STAND is open during the day.


Experiences and Activities

No vacation is complete without entertainment and at INN THE PARK Fukuoka guests can relax and enjoy their time away from the stresses of everyday life.

An onsen is installed near the seaside part of the park. This onsen includes both open-air and indoor baths, both of which offer panoramic views of Hakata Bay.


In addition, the park has a “listening room” with full-fledged audio equipment. From there, guests can rent a portable record player and select music from the massive record library to play wherever they wish inside the park.

This space is dedicated to honoring the musical side of Fukuoka, as it has been dubbed a “city of music” many times.

For those looking for more challenging or academic hobbies, the campground is close to the marina, zoo, aquariums, horseback riding stables, and the new Sea Dragoon athletics tower at Uminonakamichi Seaside Park.

INN THE PARK Fukuoka is now open and accepting reservations for stays up to their website (Japanese only).

The campsite is located a 15-minute walk through the park from Uminonakamichi Station on the Kyushu Kashii train line.


Location: Uminonakamichi Kaihin “Square of Light and Wind” Park, 18-26 Saitozaki, Higashi-ku, Fukuoka

Number of guest accommodations: 13 spherical tents, 12 glamping buildings, 3 beachfront cabanas, 1 suite (2 bedrooms)
