Fukuoka Travel Guide
Fukuoka is a prefecture on Japan’s main island of Kyushu whose capital, Fukuoka city, was formed from a castle town. Edo-period fortress ruins can still be seen among Maizuru Park’s cherry blossoms. Modern-day Fukuoka is also known for its elaborate float races during Hakata Gion Yamakasa festival, and for its open-air food stalls, or yatai, selling specialties such as yakitori chicken skewers.
Fukuoka is a modern city, divided historically by the central river into two separate cities, Hakata and Fukuoka. The main railway station and port are still known as Hakata Station and Hakata Port. There are city centers in both Hakata and Tenjin.
There is a Tourist Information Center in Tenjin with English speakers available under the Nishitetsu Fukuoka station. For information in English, visit the Rainbow Plaza, located on the 8th floor of the Inter Media Station (IMS) building. The IMS is accessible by subway and is just a three-minute walk from the Tenjin station. In the middle of Hakata JR train station there is a Tourist Information Center (sometimes with English speakers) with brochures in English, Japanese and other languages. They can help with transport information and bookings. On the third floor of the ACROS building, near Nakasu, you can find more information in English.
The surrounding cities and towns make up the prefecture of Fukuoka.
Fukuoka is a good starting point for first-time visitors to Japan. Being a sizable, modern city it’s still not hard to get around. A subway connects most of the city’s main attractions, providing transportation between Hakata, Tenjin, Fukuoka International Airport, Meinohama, and Nishijin (where you can find Fukuoka Tower and the baseball ground of the Softbank Hawks: Fukuoka Yahoo Dome). The main station in Hakata marks the terminus of the Sanyo Shinkansen bullet train. The Kyushu Shinkansen line also terminates here, and links the Sanyo Shinkansen directly with Kagoshima, at the southern tip of Kyushu.
Shofuku-ji, a Zen Buddhist temple on the eastern end of town, dates to the 12th century, while Hakata Machiya Folk Museum re-creates a neighborhood from around the Meiji era. Neighboring Canal City Hakata is a modern waterside complex with shops, restaurants and theaters. Nearby, Kushida Shinto shrine displays a towering float from the Hakata Gion Yamakasa festival. South of Fukuoka, Dazaifu is a quiet city noted for the Zen garden at Kōmyōzen-ji temple and its plum-lined Tenman-gu shrine. The industrial Kitakyushu city attracts visitors to its seasonal Kawachi wisteria garden.
Best time to visit Fukuoka

Giant floats are raced through the streets of Fukuoka city during the Hakata Gion Yamakasa Festival (Jul). Shinkoshiki Taisai (Dazaifu, Sep 21–25) includes a traditional Shinto procession and festival. Winter (Dec–Feb) is mild.
