Coastal parks and street food stalls
Discover the dynamic fusion of culture and cuisine in Fukuoka, Japan’s vibrant coastal city, where ancient temples coexist with cutting-edge technology, and traditional ramen meets gourmet street food delights.
On the northern coast of Kyushu, the sea and the mountains meet at a relaxed port town that is closer to Seoul and Shanghai than it is to Tokyo. Enjoy trails into the mountains as well as water sports, sandy beaches, and an active surf scene. Coastal parks, street food stalls by the ruins of Fukuoka’s castle, and Japan’s first Zen Buddhist temple.
At the Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, students come to pray for successful academic achievement. In 1889 the eastern merchant town of Hakata combined with Fukuoka castle town, with a cultural center at Tenjin and the lively island of Nakasu, filled with Fukuoka food.
Sample the charm of the city and Fukuoka’s best street fare at iconic Yatai street stalls. Shop in one of 150 shops located in Tenjin Chikagai underground mall. Hakata connects the business hub and is where the bullet train will stop. Shop for famous Hakata ceramic dolls, brocaded kimono, comfy Kurume kasuri cotton, and Yame Tea. Indulge in fantastic seafood, yakitori chicken skewers, tonkotsu ramen, and the red and round Amaou strawberries, famous for their size and deliciousness.
