Fukuoka (Kyushu)

Fukuoka is Kyushu's largest city (and Japan's sixth largest) and still growing. It's made up of two former towns, the Fukuoka castle town on the west bank of the Naka-gawa and Hakata on the east. The two towns merged in 1889 as Fukuoka, though the name Hakata is still widely in use (for instance, it's Fukuoka Airport but Hakata Station). Hakata traces its trading history back some 2000 years, which continues today with visitors from Seoul and Shanghai. Among Japanese, the city is famed for its 'Hakata bijin' (beautiful women), SoftBank Hawks baseball team and hearty Hakata ramen (egg noodles). Fukuoka's warmth and friendliness make it a great gateway to Kyushu, and warm weather and contemporary attractions - art, architecture, shopping and cuisine - make it a good base for regional excursions.

Hi (Experience Japan Travel), hope all is well. The trip was an absolute pleasure for my wife and I. We had a wonderful time learning about the culture and enjyed the sights that you organized for us. The guides were delightful and created a very pleasant experience. The first Guide made us feel very welcomed on our arrival. She was very sweet and kind in assisting us to the hotel from the airport and for providing a brief insight to the itinerary. The Tokyo Guide was insightful as well as open to diverse discussions about Japans culture. It was very impressive how much she knew about Manga and the arts. She also was able to explain how the train system works in order for my wife and I to move around Tokyo with no issues, which worked out great. The Guide in Kyoto was delightful and made all the sights fun and interesting, specifically choosing the Imperial Palace in Kyoto in leui of one of the temples that was on the agenda. Overall, they all had something special to contribute to this wonderful trip. I also wanted to thank you personally for recommending Karuizawa, my wife especially enjoyed this particular stay for its relaxing ambiance. We cannot wait to go back and experience other parts of Japan. Well be reaching out to you for this future trip. Thanks so much! Best Regards, Fabio & Leslie... READ MORE
