SpotNishijin and Momochi

"A new seaside city (Momochi) is proposed to be built by reclaimng land in the waters of Hakata Bay. Though now, a residential area, the ruins of Genko-Borui still just barely exist after withstanding two onslaughts by 13th century ""Gen,"" the largest empire in the world at that time,
With this kind of history, Momochi has accomplished a huge change. In the center of it all is giant Fukuoka Dome - Hawks Town and home of the Daiei Hawks. Hawks Town Mall has all kinds of shops from special baseball stores, 'live houses'(clubs with live concerts) to restaurants and theaters. Hawks Town Hotel and Resort are also there.
At man-made Kaihin Park in Seaside Momochi is a 234meter high tower that symbolizes Fukuoka Tower, and apartment complexes and other buildings of modern design. At the front face of Fukuoka Tower, jutting out into the ocean, is Marizon, a waterfront promenade. From there, at Umi-no-nakamichi, you can catch a boat to ferry across.
At Fukuoka City Museum, Kyodo Ningyo Doll Museum, and Saibu Gas Museum, see items from excavations on Shikanoshima Island's such as Kin-in (gold seal). The items show the influence China had on Shikanoshima.

Now, some kilometers to the west of Seaside Momochi, the main attraction of the bay area is Marinoa City Fukuoka. Here is the first outlet mall in Kyushu as well as specialty shops a big Ferris wheel. It is the new water front area that everybody's talking about.
Umi-no-Nakamichi conceals a classic and romantic spot. Hakata Bay and the Sea of Genkainada on either side Umi-no-Nakamichi stretches out long. On the outer side, rough waves pound out a shorefront of dunes. Toward the inner sea of Umi-no-Nakamichi is a sweeping view of Nokonoshima Island, Itoshima Penninsula, and Fukuoka City. Umi-no-Nakamichi is a spacious marine area, where Umi-no-Nakamichi Kaihin Koen Park and Marine World Umi-no-Nakamichi stand. Connected to Umi-no-Nakamichi is Shikanoshima Island, where they found a gold seal, a testament to the rich influence from ancient China to Japan, often called the key to the mystery of the Legend of Yamataikoku."
