Hotel Great Morning

The Hotel Great Morning is working on ‘food loss prevention’ by composting leftovers to use for growing vegetables and herbs in the rooftop vegetable garden. In addition, the hotel uses 100% renewable energy for electricity and is working to save energy by adopting the F-CON air-conditioning system with no wind and external thermal insulation for the building.

The Futamigaura area on the Itoshima Peninsula is full of attractions such as beautiful seaside scenery, fantastic sunsets and fashionable cafés lining the streets.
While the area is bustling with activity, many visitors use cars, which can cause traffic congestion on weekends and consecutive holidays.

In order to solve the traffic problem and promote sightseeing around the area, Fukuoka City is renting out electrically assisted sports bicycles called ‘E-BIKE’.

It can travel up to 130 km on a three-hour charge, making it possible to circumnavigate the Itoshima Peninsula. With an assist function for speeds of up to 24 km/h, it can also make light work of climbing mountain roads. Why not enjoy the natural beauty of the Itoshima Peninsula by bike?

Fee: 3,300 yen/2 hours or 5,500 yen/one day
*Options available, including manned guides
Visit the website for booking and model routes.

Electric Kickboard mobby

At Uminonakamichi Seaside Park, visitors can explore there on “mobby,” an environmentally friendly electric kickboard.

The park operates buses seasonally during the peak season, but they are also envisioning mobby as an alternative means of moving around.

This kind of “small” consideration for the environment is one of the important elements of sustainable tourism.
