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.

Very well organised with very good, experienced advice on what to do and see. The trip was tailored to our needs and time frame - which worked really well for u and gave us maximum value for our time in Japan. Other than the beauty of Japan and the great food, our guide Ako was great and Scott (our main Japan Travel contact) took the time to hike with us up Mt Atago which was very good of him. The weather was perfect and the crowds were few, we had both of our two days at Lake Kawaguchi where Mt Fuji was cloud free! The Cherry Blossom season was late so we also unexpectedly got to enjoy the benefits without the crowds.... READ MORE
