The area of Momochihama boasts views of three of Fukuoka’s best-known landmarks: Fukuoka Tower, PayPay Dome, and the Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk Hotel. Built on reclaimed land created for the “Asia-Pacific Expo” in 1989 architecturally speaking, and home to numerous luxurious condominiums, museums, medical centers, and shopping malls, it’s the most modern part of Fukuoka. But it also boasts a sandy beach and green parkland.
In cooperation with Sea Hawk Galleria, a shopping arcade with a diverse array of 22 shops located inside the Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk seaside hotel, we present a series of original reports on the popular and the lesser-known attractions of Momochihama.
Completed in 1990, Momochi is Fukuoka’s newest neighborhood and it is packed with things to see and do, from beaches and hotels to shopping centers and museums. There are many parks and public spaces, and the Street of World Architects—as the name implies—features buildings designed by world-renowned architects. The tree-lined streets and ample sidewalks make Momochi a great place for a stroll.
Easily accessible from central Fukuoka, Momochihama Beach is a popular spot where locals go for some R & R. The beach is situated among some of the city’s biggest landmarks, including Fukuoka Tower, PayPay Dome and the Fukuoka City Museum. Here, you can play in the sand, stroll along the boardwalk or take part in marine sports. Momochihama Seaside Park is also a perfect spot for watching the sun set over the Genkai Sea.
