When asked about famous places in Nakama City, most people first think of Habu Park, the largest municiple park in the city. Crossing over the red bridge spanning its pond leads you to the shrine’s precincts where you will find lots of greenery and a dense growth of plants throughout all four seasons. The shrine is famous in particular for its cherry blossoms, and the harmony between the cherry blossoms and the red bridge is exquisite when viewed from a boat on the pond in spring.

Best time to view cherry blossoms:

Blossoms on about 2,000 cherry trees can be viewed at the end of March to the beginning of April (Yoshino cherries, etc.)

Habu Rakan Hyakketsu Tomb

This is a group of horizontal caves centered on Mt. Rakan located inside the park, created as tombs during the latter part of the Kofun period (about 1,400 years ago). A large number of burial accessories have been found in the tombs, which are now on display at the Museum of History and Folklore. The interior of the tombs resembles residences of that era. It is believed that the construction took 200 years to complete. The ruins were designated an Important Cultural Property by Fukuoka Prefecture in 1957.

During the Meiji Period, river boats plied the waters of the Onga River carrying coal from the Chikuho Coal Fields to Wakamatsu Port. For a period of time, the coal fields supplied half of the coal used in Japan.


The Onga Bridge connects Nakama City in the east-west direction. With the progress of industry during the end of the Meiji Period, transportation systems developed and the Onga Bridge was built over the Onga River in 1919. The current bridge is the third generation of the bridges, the first one being constructed of wood.
