Nishi-ku (literally "west ward") stretches down the rocky southwest coast. The further you drive, the more rural it becomes, with town-like districts scattered among the stretches of preserved nature. If you are traveling to any one of the fine beaches in this area-like Futamigaura - you may have a hard time believing this is actually the city. Where this ward abuts Sawara-ku, closer to the city, you have Meinohama, a somewhat suburban residential area with much marina activity, including ferries to paradisaical Nokonoshima, a small island on Hakata Bay that offers a wealth of undisturbed countryside.
